Want to Work or Intern Abroad? Check out the UM-ICP Series

Starting in September!
Panel Discussion Series and International Opportunities Fair

U-M's "International Career Pathways", features an International Opportunities Fair (Oct. 23) and a series of panel discussions in September and October, may be previewed online at:


Most of these sessions should be of interest to graduate/professional school students. The first session is next Tuesday, Sept. 16, on "International Employment Myths and Opportunities."

Those of you looking for an internship will want to come to the Thursday, Sept. 25 session on "Graduate Student Strategies for Finding International Internships" (and e-mail bnolting@umich.edu if you'd like to speak for this!).

Funding is always an issue. Fortunately there are many opportunities for U-M students--come to our Tuesday, Oct. 7 session on this. See our article & an online video of last year's session at: http://internationalcenter.umich.edu/swt/work/internfunding.html

If you want to build upon your international experience by working,
interning, volunteering or teaching abroad, or meet with international employers such as the U.S. State Department and many others, don't miss these events!

Last year's session on "Graduate Student Strategies for Finding International Internships" was very valuable for finding an international internship this summer and fall. While I was able to get information from our venerable career services department, this even was great for networking.

Through attending this session, I was able to find someone who could help with writing good cover letters aimed at specific internships. That was huge for building my confidence.
