""If you want in an international career, first and foremost you need to travel. You need to get outside of your own country, so that you can demonstrate the fact that you can take initiative, that you understand that there are different cultures. If you can get that opportunity while you're at college, university, fantastic! Or, after you graduated, you want to demonstrate somewhat that you've taken the initiative, that you've spent your own money, that you're curious enough about international exposure that you've got out and you've actually traveled. What you also want to do is to make it crystal clear that you were very sensitive to the fact that there are other cultures out there. And that you're receptive, and enthusiastic about embracing other ways of being. One of the biggest mistakes that I see people making in terms of pursuing an international career, is talking about themselves, and their own values and morals and standards, based upon living in the United States. If you want to be exposed to international work, you need to be crystal clear that you are internationally conversant and sensitive, and culturally aware. That is the key to finding an international career.""I changed my style, according to what I think was required.
