- “Stepping Stones
To International Careers”
The “A Closer Look” will focus on “Stepping
Stones To International Careers.” The deadline
for this section is June 4.
The upcoming edition's
"A Closer Look" section (which explores a thematic
topic in-depth) will focus on “Stepping Stones To
International Careers,” including students' experiences
interning and working abroad. Since this is such a broad
topic, we have narrowed it down to international work or
internship experiences that have an impact on the student's
or recent graduate's future career path. The following are
suggested categories: 1. Environment/Fieldwork 2. Teaching
Abroad 3. Social Justice/ Non-Governmental Organization
4. International Business, Law or Journalism 5. International
Relations (e.g. State Department Internship) 6. Fine and
Performing Arts/ Architecture 7. Work involving a foreign
language 8. International Health 9. Engineering/ Technical
10. How to find funding for an internship (comprehensive,
practical article) 11. Post-graduate study abroad (e.g.
Fulbright, Watson, and Rotary Scholars)
Articles should be 800-1400
words and offer personal perspectives on the work abroad
experience from the topics listed above or other areas.
If not incorporated into the article, please write a brief
sidebar on how you found your particular job, the application
process, how to find funding for an internship, tips on
getting the most out of an internship, and any other helpful
practical information. In addition to full-length articles,
we also encourage the submission of brief testimonials and
quotations from students who have worked or interned abroad.
Graduate students and
graduates who are either working abroad or in career positions
with an international focus may submit articles. This information
will be extremely valuable to students looking to make work
a part of their intercultural education.
All submissions are
due by June 4, 2004. Earlier submissions are appreciated
as articles are reviewed on a rolling basis. Email articles

of International Opportunities at the University of Michigan
