Study Abroad & Employment

Thanks to Nancy Ericksen, Assistant Director for Study Abroad, Trinity University for compiling this eclectic list of publications, blog posts and campus programs when recently polling NAFSA colleagues about resources on study abroad & employment [also see my article, “The Right Tool for the Job” in the 2005 NAFSA International Educator]:

My addition to Nancy’s list is the invaluable blog by David Comp at University of Chicago: “Education Abroad and its Value in the Job Market”  http://ihec-djc.blogspot.com/2010/10/education-abroad-and-its-value-in-job.html

The Return of Investment on Study Abroad: http://holykaw.alltop.com/the-roi-of-studying-abroad-infographic – a creative visual “infographic” without sources for stats- but a great tool for discussion with students.
