Enhancing your Employability through COIL

Your COIL experience can set you apart from others as you apply for a job or advance your career. Through your engagement in a COIL project, you enriched your educational experience, gained intercultural international exposure, and developed competencies to work virtually within a multicultural team – all valuable skills in the labour market that are becoming increasingly virtual and borderless.

How would you identify and articulate the skills and competencies gained from your COIL experience to employers??


  • Identify skills and competencies and understand why they matter in your career and job search.

  • Connect the skills and competencies gained from COIL experience while marketing yourself to potential employers.
