Global Officer Program
Are you interested in working with study abroad and exchange students? Did you love your overseas study experience so much that you want to share it with other students? The Global Officer program gives students that studied overseas and students interested in the field of international education a chance to gain professional experience in marketing, advising and administration with Monash Abroad.
Global Officers will spend four to eight hours per week working at Monash Abroad on projects and events. Some of the projects that Global Officers have done are:
- social media coordination
- building a unit outline database
- collecting student testimonials
- coordinating events such as the regional meet ups
- running a photo competition
They will organise and participate in the major events that Monash Abroad hosts such as incoming student orientation, the Exchange and Experience Expo, and pre-departure orientation. Global Officers gain skills in advising by running open advising sessions for students interested in going overseas.
Global Officers will be paid for the time they spend working on projects and events however there are value-added elements such as excursions and professional development seminars that are done voluntarily.
We are looking for students who are enthusiastic about overseas study and travel, are comfortable speaking to students in small and large settings, are self-motivated and work well with others.
