Off-Campus Studies recommends that students who wish to pursue an international career consider working abroad within the first few years after graduation.
Working outside the United States can be incredibly rewarding for recent college graduates. Not only can it be a springboard for an international career and developing intercultural communication skills, it can help graduates gain professional experience, improve foreign language abilities, and become more self reliant. And, of course, graduates who work outside the United States get to make friends in a new community and see the world!
Here are some programs for you to consider
- Whitman in China Teaching Program
- Work Abroad and Volunteer Abroad Organizations - This is a list of work abroad organizations that place recent college graduates in paid positions abroad.
Each fall semester Off-Campus Studies and the Student Engagement Center co-sponsor a Work Abroad Workshop and Post-OCS Resume Building Session. Some of the handouts used in the workshop are found below:
