Are you thinking about studying abroad and want to know how it can benefit your future career? Have you studied abroad and wonder how you can market your international experience to future employers? Bring your lunch and come to Tomlinson Hall, Rm. 135 (the large conference room), to learn about the career benefits of studying abroad, including how to articulate your experiences (prospective or past!) to employers.
 
In this info session, we will go over how to communicate the skills you learned abroad to potential employers. Topics that will be covered include how to explain your international experience positively and effectively, how to integrate your study abroad program into a resume or cover letter, how to describe your experience in an interview, and much more!

Instructor:
Stuart J. Youngner, M.D.  Is it ever permissible for physicians to kill their patients? In the Netherlands, the answer is yes. In the United States, it is no. Are the Dutch sliding down a moral slippery slope? Are the Americans compromising the rights and dignity of dying patients? This 3-credit course is a unique opportunity to examine a range of Dutch and American end-of-life policies and practices with special focus on the unique ethical, cultural, religious, and legal contexts in which they developed.
Want to learn more about Euthanasia policy in The Netherlands?  Join us Monday, October 28th, 4PM-5:30PM in Degrace 312 for a special lecture by Dutch Physician Gerrit Kimsma.
