More International Opportunities & Career

Some key ways to make the most of your UNH education and to advance your career is to stay informed, get connected and plan ahead.

The Center for International Education and Global Engagement is conveniently located next to the MUB in Hood House, also home to the University Advising and Career Center (UACC).  Professional advisors trained in career counseling can take you through the steps to plan for your future.  One of their many helpful tools is the four year planner that can inform your plan of study meetings with an academic advisor.  The UACC conducts many helpful programs to help market yourselves.  We strongly recommend that you attend the UNH Career Fair (each spring), resume review workshops, and interview coaching information meetings.  

Talk to us about your goals so that we may provide you the information and resources that are critical to rounding out your degree program at UNH, such as work, internships, volunteer, and teaching opportunities abroad. UNH students have achieved great success with approved providers such as Boston University, IES or CET Academic Programs.  

If you are an International Affairs (IA) dual major or have an interest in international career, check out the What can I do with this Major section on the UACC website, read our alumni profiles or talk to an IA advisor about our alumni network.

Every student should be proactive!  Go to academic advising with ideas and questions. Engage in a dialog about how you can make the most of all of these opportunities.
