April Dahlquist, a features writer, from the Daily Illini (www.dailyillini.com) writes a fascinating article titled, "Make an impression at your next interview with study abroad experiences".
April had the time of her life during her Rome study abroad experience and now asks how to use this experience as an advantage when interviewing for a job.
Some ideas April provides in the article are:
Think about a challenge you faced abroad (demonstrates problem solving skills)
Discuss skill sets you built while abroad (communication skills are highly desirable to potential employees)
Add the experience to your resume
Did you intern abroad, volunteer abroad or learn a language abroad? These are experiences that many employers find valuable.
The key here...market yourself and use the tools that you sharpened abroad to set yourself apart from the competition in the job market.
