What really sets your resume apart in the sea of job applications? We have always known that employers favor candidates with an international experience, but now a study from an IES Abroad shows that 97% of study abroad students are twice as likely to find employment within 6 months of graduation than their peers who did not study abroad (prweb.com)! Now studying in an international context becomes much more than just an experience of cultural enrichment; it can actually kickstart your career!
