Partner with faculty teaching study abroad programs to prepare your students for today’s workforce.
To equip students with relevant workforce skills, career services units are increasingly forging strategic partnerships with other departments on campus to ensure career development across the institution. And since study abroad numbers continue to grow, partnerships with study abroad units can be very viable options for skill development and reflection outside the traditional classroom.
Join us online to learn how career services and study abroad staff at UNC Chapel Hill’s Kenan-Flagler Business School have partnered to integrate more career development into study abroad experiences. In this model, career services and study abroad are working together to help students:
- Set and achieve personal and career goals
- Increase career readiness by developing skills in adaptability, collaboration, cultural awareness, and self-awareness
- Apply and integrate career readiness skills in a practical, real-world way
- Reflect on and communicate skill development to be more competitive in job interviews
