Interested in an international career? Since the global financial crisis, massive geopolitical and economic shifts have started to take place. Wealth, power, and influence are moving away from the United States and Europe and towards high growth emerging markets such as China, South East Asia, Brazil, Mexico, and Africa. While the total collapse of the western world is not likely, it's indisputable that western economies will increasingly depend on the robust growth and consumer markets in middle class populations springing up around the world.
If you’re a graduate dreading the job prospects in the United States or Europe, you probably have good reason to worry. Employment opportunities remain grim for Gen Y. Fortunately, the job market is only a problem if you limit yourself geographically to countries with massive unemployment. In contrast, high growth emerging markets in Asia, Latin America, and the Middle East can give you valuable work placements as well as life-changing personal experiences.
