So I want to work in study abroad when I graduate from my PhD, which is about 4 years from now. My area is in foreign language and study abroad so my desire to work in this field is great. I am going to be volunteering with the study abroad office with projects (I don't know what they are about my first meeting is next Thursday).

Well my question is do any of you work in this area or know people who do? What skills do you/friends (whoever) think that I should gain through working there? (any one can answer this question btw).

I already have mentoring, advising, and program coordinating skills from my current positions in graduate school. What else do you think I need to gain to be on top of my game when I leave?
