'Marketing Your International Experience,' a session for study abroad returnees

Study abroad returnees are invited to attend a session on "Marketing Your International Experience" offered by International Education and Career Services. This event will be held from 11:45 a.m. to 1 p.m. Thursday, Feb. 7, in the Career Resource Center, Room 350, Murray-Herrick Campus Center. A pizza lunch will be provided.

The session focuses on identifying the applicable skills acquired while studying and living abroad that you can use in the workplace and in the job search (on résumés, cover letters and while interviewing). Undergraduates who studied abroad for at least one semester will find the session most helpful.
