Marketing Your Study Abroad ExperienceStudying abroad provides students with a chance to learn about themselves and their world, experience opportunities to learn new languages and meet new people, and create memories that will last a lifetime.
Studying abroad also sets you apart when applying to jobs, internships, and graduate schools. Many potential employers and graduate school admissions counselors seek candidates with international experience because of the skills and knowledge students gain through study abroad. It is important to know how to best market your study abroad experience. The Study Abroad Office encourages you to meet with Pitt Career Development to discuss your individual career plans. The SAO has also developed a comprehensive handout to help you begin the process of catering your resume and developing interview skills to best incorporate your study abroad experience into a professional context.
