International work experience

Studying and working abroad, whether for a whole year, your summer vacation or even a couple of weeks can be an extremely enriching and rewarding experience. Employers look for candidates with a global mindset – that is those with cultural awareness and an ability to work with colleagues from other countries. They also look for adaptability and flexibility and undertaking an international experience can give you this.
