Translating study abroad experiences into the workplace isn’t always straightforward. In this interactive session, you will experience a model of career coaching designed to help returnees choose careers closely aligned with their values and skills; articulate employer-valued skills developed while abroad; and become effective bridge-building colleagues in the workplace. You’ll also engage in an experiential exercise designed to mine for skills and strengths through reflective storytelling.
