Why go abroad?
Cultural differences extend beyond food, appearance, and language. Going abroad gives you the opportunity to delve into a culture's perceptions, beliefs, and values-- ultimately increasing your level of cultural competence.
There is a growing need in the workplace for individuals who are able to live and work in an intercultural environment and who can speak a second language. What better way to set yourself apart from the competition than by showing future employers how globally-minded you are!
