International Sales & General Manager
There are many reasons to go abroad.
Of course, the internship may mean a boost in your career. You hear and read about it everywhere. If you want to better your chances in getting the career that you want, then go abroad and gain international work experience firsthand.
Planning may not be everything, however it is the best basis for a successful story.
If nothing has yet be planned for when high school finishes, it could be the perfect time to plan on doing an internship abroad. The internship does not have to be very long. It just has to be long enough for you to get to know your surroundings, understand the culture and get to know new people. In addition to learning a new language and all the essentials needed for the internship, you also gain more social skills and personal responsibility, both contribute greatly to self-knowledge and development.
This enriching time is particularly important for you to take advantage of all the personal and professional experiences that you can gain for the future. Whether it’s an apprenticeship or studying or even working abroad, as long as we have a clear vision of where we are heading and what goals we have, it’s a clear road to success.
Working internationally does not always mean it just qualifies you for an international environment. It also gives you the constructive communication, teamwork and adaptability skills required on a daily basis. It can lead you to even taking the first steps to self-employment or in gaining a promotion.
