My Career Story: Making the Most of my International Internship

Are you interested in going on an internship abroad and learning more about what the benefits are for your personal, professional, and academic life? Or maybe you are already getting ready to go on an international internship or study abroad program and want to find out ways to make the most of the experience. This podcast is for you!

Join us as we listen to our panelists share stories about their international internships and how they flourished through these experiences. They will share stories on how navigated the peaks and valleys, explored their interests and skills, how their networks helped them along the way, and what they learned about themselves throughout.
