Going global: thriving in an international career
Where do you hope your career will take you post MBA? Mumbai? New York? Bangkok? Paris? Singapore? Increasingly international experience is seen by many companies as a prerequisite for more senior leadership roles.
If your career choice is to work in the corporate sector for an international or multi-national company then it is likely the international question will occur at some point – perhaps even at interview. It is wise therefore to have given the whole question of international mobility some consideration.
This webinar is designed to spark your thinking and help you to answer the following questions:
- How does an international lifestyle appeal to me personally and professionally?
- What are the opportunities of international relocation from both a professional and personal perspective?
- What are employers looking for in an international employee?
- What are the potential hotspots and pitfalls?
- What questions should I be asking when talking to a company about an international position or career?
- How can I ensure that I utilize an international opportunity to proactively manage my career?
- What happens if I have a partner/family who I’d like to come too?
