Unpacking Your Study Abroad Experience

Emory College Study Abroad Programs partners with the Emory Career Center to host the dynamic Unpacking your Study Abroad Experience workshop every semester.  Study Abroad returnees and students interested in studying abroad are invited to participate in this interactive discussion that helps you effectively present your overseas experience on your resume, your cover letters and during interviews. 

The presentation covers topics such as:

  • How to best place your study abroad experience on your résumé and curriculum vitae
  • How to describe the knowledge, attitudes, and skills you have acquired through study abroad in application cover letters
  • How to relate these skills to the requirements of prospective employers and the admissions criteria of graduate schools
  • How to highlight your study abroad experience and skills during job interviews
