The experiences you had while abroad don’t really end when you return home. Your memories and lessons learned will impact you for years to come. After you return, be sure to explore your career resources and the ways you can continue expanding your global understanding.

Study Abroad and Your Career

As the demand for cross-culturally competent graduates and employees continues to rise, your ability to market all of your unique knowledge and skills gained abroad could set you apart from other candidates and play an important role in landing your desired position. We encourage you to meet with the Career Devlopment Office or the U-M Career Center to develop a list of marketable skills related to your experience abroad, practice telling your study abroad story in interviews, and receive guidance on how to feature study abroad on your resume. 

During the fall semester, all students are encouraged to attend International Career Pathways events to meet professionals from a variety of international fields and explore job, internship, and graduate school options abroad.
