        Internationalize Your Resume

Use your international experience when updating your resume and preparing for life after graduation. Your experience abroad shows potential employers that you have skills in adaptability, intercultural competence, resourcefulness and possibly a second language.

Remember to include the skills that you've acquired from your time abroad, for instance, adaptability, critical thinking, understanding and respect for new ideas, perspectives, diversity and awareness of world's political, economic and social issues in addition to the experience itself. Confidence and problem solving may be a few of the many skills you gained or improved during your time abroad; all of which are very attractive assets to a potential employer.
