Working Abroad Resources

Students returning from an education abroad experience will go through a range of emotions and transitions, all with keen regard to expectations. One item often found with returning students is lacking a conduit to voice their experience or even feeling misunderstood. This dissipates with time, but seeking that indescribable feeling of “international,” or wanting to return abroad again, that almost never disappears. Be it another education abroad experience, finding or even building a local international community, interning abroad, working abroad, or planning your future career, this guide is designed to give students at least a start and a hub of resources for returning abroad.

Prior to starting, we recommend to keep a few things in mind:
  • Research and know the work requirements in each country. They will vary country by country depending on US and host country relations. We recommend “Project Visa” as a general hub and starting place.
  • Research and know the cultural norms for working in each country you are pursuing. This extends to Resumé and CV etiquette, to dress and interviewing, etc. It will vary and accuracy is extremely important.
