Students: Your 'First Class' ticket to an exciting career!

Many students feel they are under multiple pressures when they graduate and start their career:

  • Student debt.

  • few well-paying and exciting job opportunities.

  • No work experience.

  • Intense competition from other graduates.

These can be very real pressures, often leading to the dilemma of "wage slavery", many years of debt repayment, boring jobs that can't be quit for financial reasons, and a "small" life without travel or luxuries.

Not what you signed up for when you started a college degree, was it?

But there can be a smart way out of this dilemma!

Give yourself an international career edge - be able to do business in another country on behalf of a company, government department, or non-profit organization in your home country!

Field Schools: A big boost to your resume

Join one of our field schools and indicate to potential employers that:

  • You are different from other applicants - different in a good way!

  • You have unique and valuable skills to offer.

  • You can help businesses and other organizations solve their international business and operational challenges.

One of the biggest challenges organizations have is the inability to start doing business and operating in a particular country or region because they have no experience and no employee who knows how to do business there.

Become that employee:
Start that career!

One of our field shool experiences will very quickly and intensively give you career skills in how to work and do business in a new culture and country.

A field school will not give you years of actual working experience, but it will give you:

  • The foundation to be confident interacting with local business people.

  • Skills for finding information and contacts.

  • Set you up with a network of people and resources in the country.

  • Educate you on the adaptation necessary for foreign products and services to be successfully marketed in the country. This is preparation that is most businesses don't know how to do!

Fast growing international markets you could build your career expertise in right now:

  • Brazil
  • China
  • India
  • Arabia
  • Central America
