Here at Lexia, we know that you have gained skills while on our programs abroad that employers value. Adapting to a new environment, communicating across cultures, intensive research, foreign language skills, and working independently in an organized manner will set you apart. For those interested in working in the international education field, we have assembled resources below. Make sure to join and check our Facebook group and Twitter page where we will post opportunities as they arise.
