"Market Your International Experience"

You learned so much studying abroad. Since strong international experience can set you apart from other job candidates – even for some not-so-international positions – careful articulation of your skills is essential. Learn how to put your newly learned knowledge and skills to work on your résumé, cover letters and in interviews. This session is geared toward undergraduates.

Attend a session from 11:45 a.m. to 1 p.m. Tuesday, Sept. 23, in the Career Services Center, third floor, McNeely Hall
