International Education: A Gateway to a Paid Experience Abroad

VIRTUAL EVENT: Thursday, October 8, 2020

TIME: 5:00pm – 5:30pm EDT

If you are looking for a way to explore a career in education, or are seeking a gap year experience overseas before graduate school or another career commitment, an international paid teaching internship could be just the ticket! Join Search Associates and Diana Kerry to learn more about the growing demand for teachers in K-12 American and International schools. Schools in many parts of the world hire graduating seniors and recent college graduates in all majors to work for a single school year as paid teaching interns. It’s a great opportunity to gain classroom experience in an international setting and can sometimes lead to a full-fledged teaching job the following year.

Don’t Forget the EVENTS on Handshake!

Handshake has a ton of information sessions and workshops focusing on current internship and job opportunities and skill-building events on Handshake. In addition, you should plan to attend some of these events as a way to learning and get first-hand knowledge about an industry sector you’re curious about, and to up your game in knowing what a specific sector is looking for in an ideal candidate. The events section can be searched by Middlebury-only posted events OR by lots more employers if you 1) Open the ‘All Filters’ and [uncheck] ‘Only Posted By My School’. This will open up many more sessions. Here are a few coming up in the next few weeks (and don’t forget to sign up directly with some employers to get access to their Zoom links):
