Webster University’s Office of Study Abroad and the Career Planning & Development Center sponsored a Career Skills Workshop on Jan. 29 in the University Center’s Sunnen Lounge. The informational workshop was tailored to Webster students that have studied abroad or are currently considering studying abroad.

Webster Study Abroad alumni panelists Jenna Hopkins, Hayden Andrews, Matt Lang and Gaby Deimeke shared their study abroad experiences.

Over 30 students learned how to market study abroad experiences to future employers from Career Planning & Development staff, who presented information on how to identify and communicate skills students develop while studying abroad to future employers.

Students also heard from four Webster Study Abroad alumni panelists Hayden Andrews, Gaby Deimeke, Jenna Hopkins and Matt Lang.

Each spoke about the enduring positive impact that studying abroad had on each of them during the session “Unpacking Study Abroad.” They shared the benefits they have experienced as a result of the experiences and how they have marketed their study abroad experience on a resume or in an interview.
