Marketing Your Study Abroad Experience
Returnees will be notified of this event
Target Audience: Recent returnee study abroad students who have been abroad on a short-term program or for a semester or year.
Learn how to identify what you learned during your study abroad experience and then how to best articulate these experiences on a resume, in an interview, and in other professional settings. A portion of the workshop will include a panel of alumni and employers who will share what they look for in candidates and answer specific questions from attendees. FREE international food will be provided.
Study Abroad Pre-Departure Orientation (PDO)
Target Audience: Students committed to studying abroad for the following semester/summer/year.
Each semester, the CGE hosts a MANDATORY pre-departure orientation (PDO) for students studying abroad for the following semester or summer. All students going for a summer or semester must attend this meeting. The CGE typically provides coffee and great discussions on how to stay safe abroad and prepare for one of the best semesters of your college career. PDO lasts for about 2 hours.
**There are NO makeup sessions and NO one-on-one appointments to go through PDO information.**
Our spring PDO will take place for all of our Summer 2020 and Fall 2020 study abroad participants will be on Saturday, March 21 from 9:45 AM - 12:00 PM in the Pharmacy & Health Sciences Building. Please click "Interested" or "Going" on our PDO Facebook event for reminders about the event.
