While it is easy to see the academic benefits of study abroad, it is also important to identify its career benefits.

As in the liberal arts, exploration is at the core of a meaningful and successful career journey. While many students feel they need to identity a specific career objective and the major to match early in their college career, the reality is very different. According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, the average college graduate will hold more than a dozen jobs in her lifetime in multiple career fields. Given all that change, what will best serve students as they launch their careers is not certainty and narrow expertise, but the ability to think broadly across disciplines, adaptability, and a strong sense of one’s own interests, skills, values, and strengths.

    Finding the fit between you and an environment is integral to building a satisfying and successful career. In 1909, Frank Parsons, who is known as the architect of career guidance and counseling services in the United States, developed the framework of Person-Environment Fit (Lapan, 2004). This model supports the idea that people should develop a clear understanding of themselves, gain knowledge of occupational (or educational) opportunities, and engage in a decision-making process that would incorporate this knowledge of self and occupations. An interview is one way that you can gain a clearer understanding of both.
