“I chose Geneva because I wanted to improve my French and experience a French speaking culture”

I chose to study in Geneva because it is the European hub for international affairs. Geneva is such a diverse city with many international organizations and it is at the forefront of human rights efforts. It also helps that I speak a bit of French!

My internship is with the Permanent Mission of the Republic of Maldives to the United Nations Geneva. The main responsibilities are researching and drafting reports and statements, maintaining the Ambassador’s meetings and attending meetings on behalf of the Maldives.

I would not have known about this opportunity without the Career Planning and Development Center at Webster University Geneva. Thankfully my resume was already prepared, with the help of the Career Planning and Development Center at Webster University St. Louis. With their help I have been able to make long lasting career connections and extend my stay in Geneva!

Studying abroad is a long-term investment for your future. Traveling is a wonderful experience where you learn a lot about yourself and others. And as a graduate student seeking employment after graduating, studying abroad sets you apart from the crowd. Bring business cards with you to make connections, seek out internships or volunteer opportunities and utilize University resources while abroad!
