International experiences can disrupt even the most carefully planned college experiences. Exposure to new ideas, new ways of life, and intriguing people opens up new possibilities for global career ambition and multilingual work environments. If international experiences motivate and captivate you, this is the career course for you. If you've ever dreamed of interning or working in a global organization, you'll want to take this course.

To succeed in your job search, at home or abroad, you need a plan. You need a clever professional story. And you need skills.
