Market Your Study Abroad Experience

Studying abroad leads to more than significant personal growth; it sets you apart from the rest of the applicants applying for internships, graduate school, and jobs. International experiences make you desirable to future employers because they value the skills and knowledge you’ve gained on your academic journey. It’s not enough to list where you traveled on your résumé. You need to frame your experiences effectively to maximize your advantage.

Michigan Tech Career Services

Our Career Services team provides the tools to build your future after graduation. Fall and spring career fairs—among the best-attended in the nation, by hundreds of companies—gives you the chance to connect personally with company representatives, many of them Tech graduates, who come to campus prepared to hire.

In preparation for Career Fair take part in Résumé Blitz, a 10-to-15-minute session that offers stellar résumé advice in an informal, on-campus walk-in setting. You’re also encouraged to make an appointment for résumé and cover letter guidance at any time. Find Career Services (next door to our IPS office) in Administration Building 220. Or email career@mtu.edu, or call 906-487-2313.
