Summer Series: Experience Changes Everything

This summer the Career Connection Center’s Experiential Learning Team has planned a series of virtual workshops for your consumption. We want you to know how impactful Global and Sociocultural Learning can be to your professional and career development. You’ve probably never had anyone challenge your thinking or push you out of your comfort zone to explore the world (not just the next city or state over) around you…we are talking about GLOBAL EXPERIENCES! There is no better time than now while you’re in college and free from any major financial obligations and time commitments that would otherwise prohibit you from traveling and exploring. Maybe you don’t have the gusto to go that far from home, but there are lots of other ways to still partake in the global experience through virtual exchange courses, remote global jobs and internships, etc. Let us encourage you and show you the way! Join us at one of the below virtual workshops taking place in June and July.

June 12, 2024 (2pm-3pm) – Experience Changes Everything: Options for Global Learning
If you’re unsure about what avenue of global learning you want to explore, don’t be discouraged. As you hear from Gator Alumni about their global pathway, this workshop will help expose you to different options that you can choose from. Ensure your world readiness as you study abroad, teach abroad, participate in a virtual exchange program, or find your next internship or volunteer opportunity abroad; there’s a world of experience that awaits you! The event is virtual through zoom on June 12th from 2-3pm.
