  • International Careers
    Getting a job abroad and developing an international career is now a more attainable goal than ever before. With the ease of travel and the speed of communication, many U.S. companies find it easy to operate branches or headquarters in a foreign country, and as a result, international job opportunities cover a broad spectrum of fields.  There are also a wealth of shorter-term job possibilities and international internships available, to help you get started on an international career.

    For an overall look at international job opportunities, students might want to look at web-based search engines such as www.careerbuilder.com or www.worktree.com, both of which have an "international" section. Books that might be useful to help you get started include The Back Door Guide to Short-Term Job Adventures, written by Michael Landes (available in the UI Study Abroad Office library) or the Directory of International Internships, published by Michigan State University (also available in the UI Study Abroad Office library). Another book focusing on international careers rather than on shorter, international internships or short-term jobs, is International Jobs: Where They Are, How to Get Them, written by Eric Kocher and Nina Segal (look for the most current edition; the third edition is available in the UI Study Abroad Office library). 

    More specifically, now that they have discovered the world, many returned study abroad students often express a particular interest in jobs like ours—working in International Programs or Study Abroad Offices. Below we have listed out some general requirements that you’ll likely need, as well as skills that might be helpful in landing you a great job in an international programs or study abroad office. 

    Generally Required for a Study Abroad Program Advisor Position: 

    Bachelor's or Master's degree in a related field
