Employment Abroad

Sewanee students who wish to have gainful employment abroad need to be mindful that the governments of many countries are quite conservative about issuing work visas to those who are not citizens of their own country.  There are exceptions, of course—for example with opportunities available through an organization like BUNAC  or World Teach, who do the visa processing for you for a fee.  Students may need to read carefully about options since a fair percentage of work experiences abroad are available at the expense of the student/graduate.  The Office of Career and Leadership Development online Toolbox for Service & International Opportunities is the best place to learn more.
