Delwin Portillo Shares Recent Study Abroad Experience

Related: Education Abroad Opportunities – Upcoming Deadlines

My semester abroad visiting The Hague, Netherlands was easily the most enriching semester of my undergrad. I learned so much about being a leader, diversity, self confidence, personal growth, and of course I learned a lot about business and marketing!

I was able to take a Purposeful Marketing course which had many different components to it. There was a leadership component, in which I learned different leadership skills and how to flesh out and improve these skills. There was a Project Management component where I learned how to use SCRUM Methodology in order to complete a project. And then the Marketing Component in which I worked with a real life charity in brainstorming a new marketing strategy for their upcoming projects.

Over the course of the semester I was able to travel to multiple countries and experience a variety of cultures. I was able to meet many people that I am now able to call mentors and friends. It is an experience that I will never take for granted, and I feel has given me a renewed appreciation for education and traveling. Thank you UCA for this fantastic opportunity.

CEO for a Month Program

My name is Emile De Pooter and I am reaching out on behalf of the Adecco Group US Foundation regarding our CEO for One Month Program; an internship designed to offer students a hands-on experience working side-by-side with our executives and the unique chance to learn from leaders who are passionate about shaping a better future of work for all.
As a 2022 CEO for One Month finalist, I can attest that this is an unparalleled experience that any young professional interested in leadership should consider. Throughout my participation in the program and subsequent internships within the Adecco Group I have noticed that they are not only committed to making this an internship but also invested in mentoring me in my first steps in the corporate world. Therefore, I would highly recommend this to any student who is seeking to take the next big step in their careers.
In past years we have received numerous competitive candidates from University of Central Arkansas, and we’d like to further raise awareness about this internship with your students. Would you be willing to share this unique opportunity with your student body? If so, we have an information guide for you to reference.
Thank you in advance and please don’t hesitate to reach out for any additional information.
Kind Regards,
Emile and the Adecco Group US Foundation Team
