Instead of traveling the world through your screen, you might as well pack a few belongings and experience it first hand. You might have a million of excuses holding you back, but why not put them aside and start a new chapter in your life? The Go Abroad Fair offers a series of events– including seminars, speakers, and discussion panels– that will make even easier for you to step out of your comfort zone and explore new countries, cities, and cultures. I personally spent my summer in New York city working at a publishing house called Houghton Mifflin Harcourt. The best part of my experience, apart from being in such an overwhelming city as NY, was the opportunity to learn more about an industry that I had a serious interest in. Now I’m in my forth year I feel more confident about what I want to do after graduation, and I can count on a working and life experience like no other.
At the fair learn about a wide variety of study, travel, volunteer, internship and work abroad opportunities.
