You’re back from your five months or a year in Israel. So what now? Regardless of whether you participated in a gap year, study abroad, or post college program, your Israel experience has given you a wealth of skills and experience that you can highlight on your resume to help you get the most out of your next phase in life.
Brandeis University’s Director of Career Services Joe Dupont says of recent college grads who have pursued internship opportunities abroad, “Employers like to hire people who take risks and can adapt. A person willing to go 3,000 miles for an internship is definitely someone I’d hire.”
He also says that the best candidates are the ones who can clearly relate the skills they gained from their internships. “The Masa Israel experience is so rich and robust that it only makes this easier.”
