Events for Study Abroad Alumni

 University Career Center Webinar: 

Marketing Your Study Abroad Experience

Did you study abroad? In a competitive job market, college graduates need to highlight everything that sets them apart from other candidates, and an experience studying abroad can do just that! Are you uncertain about how to share your international experience on your resume, cover letter, or in an interview?

Review a webinar, hosted live in September 2018, in which Nicole Noble, Associate Director at the TTU University Career Center, and Whitney Longnecker, Director of Study Abroad, shared how to speak to future employers about your study abroad experience to further your career goals!

Additional live webinars will be made available during the 2019-2020 academic year. Please contact your Study Abroad Advisor and/or the University Career Center if additional support is needed.
