Denver, CO (PRWEB) November 15, 2012
As students return from an international education program abroad, they return excited and brimming with stories of their experiences and insights into new cultures.
In order to provide a captive audience with whom students can share this newly gained knowledge, GoAbroad.com and international education professionals of the Rocky Mountain Region are thrilled to invite students to the Lessons From Abroad Returnee Conference on Saturday, February 23rd, 2013, hosted at the University of Colorado Denver campus in Denver, Colorado!
Highlights of the conference include giving students the opportunity to seek new ways to study, travel, or work abroad again, to meet other recent study abroad returnees from all over the Rocky Mountain Region, and learning how to talk about newly acquired global skills in a job interview.
This is a great chance to network with other students and professionals working in internationally-focused jobs, and GoAbroad strongly encourages students to save the date for this conference! When attending the conference, please bring several copies of your resume. Business casual attire is recommended. GoAbroad hopes to see students in Denver on February 23!

About Lessons From Abroad
In 2008, Lessons from Abroad was born as a team of dedicated and passionate volunteers launched the first west-coast collaborative returnee conference at UC Berkeley. The need for this type of collaboration was so great and the Lessons from Abroad model was so sound that, in 2009, leaders from San Diego launched the returnee conference in Southern California utilizing the Lessons from Abroad brand, design and curriculum. Today, six years later, eleven (11) Lessons from Abroad conferences have been run across the state of California from San Diego to Los Angeles to Northern California. We will even see “Lessons” in Nebraska in 2012 and the Rocky Region in 2013! Over 1200 students have participated in Lessons from Abroad conferences and approximately 150 professionals have volunteered their time in conjunction with the conference.
