Less than 10% of US students study abroad, and even less intern abroad, so naturally international experience catches recruiters’ eyes. But they don’t want to only hear about your travels at the interview. They want to know about the skills you acquired while abroad. Learn how to professionally pitch your study abroad experience and to market those newly acquired skills.

K-16 educators are invited to join the Asian Studies Center for this free presentation and curriculum workshop on Thanhha Lai's "Inside Out & Back Again." Lai's award-winning book of poems chronicles the Vietnam War through the eyes of 10 year-old Ha, whose family flees Saigon for the promise of a better life in the United States. The hardships endured by Ha and her family during the war fade into the past as they struggle to adjust to a new way of life in America—one that is often at odds with the promise of their new country.
