Studying abroad can be a transformative experience for launching your career, but it’s up to you to demonstrate the relevance of your global skills to future employers. The ISEP Ambassador Program provides a structured opportunity to promote international education on your campus while demonstrating transferable career skills essential for building your résumé.

The ISEP Ambassador Program is a selective, semester-long program that, at this time, is open to U.S. students who have recently participated in an ISEP program abroad. The program requires your enthusiastic commitment through participation in social media and on-campus activities in agreement with your home ISEP Coordinator. Additionally, all ambassadors are expected to engage with other ambassadors from across the country and with ISEP Staff through regular virtual meetups and interaction over an online platform. Ambassadors also agree to make their email address available to others who may be interested in learning about their experience and host site .

Benefits of the ISEP Ambassador Program

Professional development: Each core component of the ISEP Ambassador Program focuses on a separate area in which you can demonstrate initiative and professional skills for your résumé. Your record of your activities throughout the semester is a great resource toward building your career portfolio for job interviews. At the end of the program, your home ISEP Coordinator or ISEP Team Leader may be able to provide a letter of recommendation based on your performance.

Personal development: Studying abroad is often a life-changing experience. Not only have you been immersed in another culture, and possibly another language, but you’ve most likely also learned a great deal about yourself. By reflecting on what you gained abroad and sharing this with others, you can maximize your personal development and make a difference in the lives of other students worldwide.
