DESCRIPTION

The competition will be fierce. Every September, over 20 million students are enrolled in higher education. Come graduation, all will be searching for a limited number of jobs. Your degree and what you've learned gives you an excellent foundation for the future - but international education makes you different from the rest. Only 15% of students study abroad, and only about 5% complete an international internship. Actively engaging in this experience and being able to convey your career readiness with future employers using language they respect can give you a powerful competitive edge over other graduates.

The International Internship: The Multicultural Workplace, will provide you the opportunity to develop vital business skills employers are actively seeking in job candidates. This makes your time abroad more meaningful and gives you bona fide business qualifications.

This course is comprised of two parts:
-First, you'll be placed in an internship within a sector related to your professional ambitions as outlined in your placement contract.
-Secondly, you will enroll in a hybrid academic seminar conducted both online and in-person where you will analyze and evaluate the workplace culture and the daily working environment you experience. The course is divided into eight career readiness competency modules as set out by the National Association of Colleges and Employers (NACE) which guide the course's learning objectives.

During the academic seminar, you will be invited to reflect weekly on your internship experience within the context of your host culture by comparing and contrasting your experiences abroad with that of your home culture. By creating an intentional time to reflect on your experiences in your internship, the role you have played in the evolution of your experience in your internship placement and the experiences of your peers in their internship placements, you will develop a greater awareness of:
-Your strengths relative to the career readiness competencies
-The subtleties and complexities of integrating into a cross-cultural work environment
-How to build and maintain a career search portfolio
