Advice for Current International Institute IDP Students
Sometimes the IDS major can be a bit overwhelming in terms of where to focus and build skills upon. Katharine Brooks' "You Majored in What?" is a great career guide to help solve this predicament. Definitely use all the great resources on campus and don't be afraid to network outside of school.
