Students maximized their international experience by effectively highlighting their new found skills and knowledge in job search during a resume workshop Tuesday in the Arts and Sciences Auditorium. Along with staff from the Georgia College Career Center and International Studies Abroad, the International Education Center helped students better articulate their cross-cultural competencies.
Representatives from various college groups will set up tables on front campus to provide information to faculty and students about pursuing opportunities abroad from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Wednesday at the Parks Hall and Atkinson Hall porches. Students and faculty who previously experienced an internship abroad will also discuss the merits and challenges of interning overseas at 2 p.m. in the Arts and Sciences Auditorium, room 336.
As a free and open community event, the most celebrated International Day is scheduled from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. Thursday on front campus.
“This is the highlight of our International Week at Georgia College. International Club members will staff various country tables and show off country exhibits, photos, clothing, and arts and crafts. The community can meet students and learn where they’re from. Some students may have different activities at their tables. The Chinese students will do calligraphy of people’s names; Indian students will do henna painting; and Japanese students will do origami,” Davis said. “It’s a great event for kids and adults to have fun and learn about different cultures. Countries represented include Sweden, Libya, Columbia, Germany, Jamaica, Kenya, Korea, Russia, Zimbabwe and more.”
In addition to displayed exhibits, a traditional flag parade will make its way around campus starting at 12:15 p.m. Various students and student groups will also provide live entertainment starting at 12:30 p.m., including the salsa club and swing club. Incase of inclement weather, the celebration will move across the street to the Student Activity Center in the Magnolia Ballroom.
