MS_21 in Saint Louis, Missouri

I just graduated from a very culturally diverse college. And by diverse I think I met someone from 2/3 of the countries in the world at some point while going there. So I feel like I have more experience in working with people of different cultures then my own. Is this a good thing to put on a resume and if so what would be some good examples of how to get the point across professionally.

This is what I have as of now.

"Experience working in team environments comprised of individuals of diverse cultures and backgrounds."

Any advice offered is much appreciated. Thank you.

uhm.. that statement pretty much says the opposite of what you think it says.

I get what you're trying to say.. but things like that should be assumed.
Focus more on what your role was within the team and why you were a good team player.
Led discussions, built consensus, managed outcome.. etc.

Unless you've got formal experience, leave it off your resume. It may be something relevant at the interview level.
