Plan II Honors and Liberal Arts Honors Career Week 2010

Workshop 1:  STUDY ABROAD                     

Time: 4:30pm-5:15pm

Location: GEB 3rd Floor Conference Room

The workshop will feature a presenter from the Study Abroad Office.   The basic steps in the study abroad process will be reviewed including finding a program and funding.  In addition, we will discuss how students can identify their academic and career goals and use this information to choose the right study abroad program, get the most out of the trip, and use the experience to market themselves later on.

Workshop 2:  STUDY ABROAD STUDENT PANEL  

Time: 5:30pm – 6:15pm

Location: GEB 3rd Floor Conference Room

This workshop will feature a panel of Plan II and LAH students who have studied abroad and are willing to share their experiences, advice and answer questions for their younger peers.  Panelists have studied in various regions throughout the world, in programs of various lengths, and participated in different activities (coursework, internships, and service projects).  

Workshop 3:  CAREERS IN FOREIGN SERVICE  

Time: 6:30pm – 7:15pm

Location: GEB 3rd Floor Conference Room

This workshop will feature a presentation by Ambassador William Stewart, Diplomat in Residence and Visiting Scholar, LBJ School of Public Affairs. The Diplomat-in-Residence program is managed by the U.S. Department of State to disseminate information about career opportunities in the Foreign Service, to help candidates through the Foreign Service exam and application process, and to support programs sponsored by foreign affairs groups and institutions. Ambassador Stewart will detail opportunities available for undergraduates including internships and discuss how students interested in Foreign Service careers can prepare and be competitive in this field.
