UNDERGRADUATES ADD INTERNATIONAL EXPERIENCE TO RESUMES
Whether looking for a job or applying to graduate school, it’s hard to stand out from the pack these days – even with a great GPA.
That’s why it’s so important to have experiential learning on your resume. There are multiple ways to learn outside the classroom, including internships, co-ops and studying abroad.
More than 20 students from BGSU’s Center for Undergraduate Research and Scholarship (CURS) recently gave presentations about their experiences abroad. The top performers were honored with CURS Global Engagement Awards on Nov. 18 at the Bowen-Thompson Student Union.
“Thanks to the faculty and mentors, these outstanding students have now had their lives transformed because they’ve been a part of this great project here at the University,” said President Mary Ellen Mazey. “When you travel abroad, you learn so much not only about that country but also about yourself.”
