Study Abroad 2022 - Vaccination and Passport Updates

UW-Stout’s Office of International Education has received updated guidance from several of our overseas partners that they are now requiring full COVID-19 vaccination for participation in their study abroad programs. It is anticipated that more partners and/or foreign countries will require full vaccination in the coming weeks. Students interested in studying abroad in 2022 should consider obtaining full vaccination as soon as possible. If you have not done so already, please provide a copy of your official CDC COVID-19 Vaccination Card to the University of Wisconsin-Stout's online portal.    

Additionally, the U.S. Department of State continues to experience significant delays in processing U.S. passports (approximately 16 weeks). Information on processing times and application procedures may be found here. We strongly encourage all students to apply as soon as possible in order to participate in upcoming study abroad experiences.

4 Tips to Virtual Interviewing

  1. Test your technology
    1. Test your internet connection, your device's camera and the audio quality of your microphone.
    2. Don’t panic if the video cuts off or the audio stops working. Take the interviewer’s phone number beforehand. It will come in handy if you find yourself in this situation. Call them immediately if a glitch surfaces, and ask them if they want to reschedule the interview or if they want to continue the call.
  2. Set up your environment
    1. Check the background that the recruiter will be seeing on the call. The best scenario would be a blank wall, or you can move a bookshelf right behind you if possible! It will make you look so much more professional. If that’s not possible, do ensure that your background is neat. An unmade bed or a cluttered background will leave a very bad impression.
  3. Dress Professionally
    1. Dress the same way you would for an in-person interview. Even though you might feel like you're lounging at home during the interview, do not make the mistake of appearing unprofessional.
  4. Practice, Practice, Practice!
    1. Research the company and keep your resume handy. 
    2. Schedule a practice interview with your Career Counselor
