Questions?
CEIBS
20
Career Implications of the Time Abroad
  • Dan Mayner
  • Fisher Career Services Office

21
Primer
  • "The nature of business is global, and anyone not
    prepared to cope with a more powerful India,
    China, and other countries is going to be left
    behind"
  • Wharton Student
  • Source Business Week Online, May 2006

22
B-School Trends
  • Wharton study abroad has more than tripled to
    20 of all students
  • Stern interest from Stern students doubled in
    the past two years.

23
Recruiters Speak
  • As long as the experience is significant, some
    recruiters say it can distinguish between two
    otherwise equal candidates.

24
Recruiters Speak
  • J. Frank Brown
  • Global Partner for PricewaterhouseCoopers
  • "It's always nice to see a candidate who's done
    a semester abroad -- not a party semester in
    London but a real deal in Eastern Europe, Asia,
    or Latin America -- or done work for any kind of
    an NGO in Africa,"
  • "To me it implies an adventurous spirit, someone
    who's willing to see some part of the world and
    broaden his or her horizons."

25
Recruiters Speak
  • VALUE OF CHANGE
  • Some top firms value international experience
    because it involves leaving what's familiar and
    learning foreign things.
  • And it opens the door to future placements in a
    company's offices abroad.

26
Recruiters Speak
  • Janet Raifa
  • Co-Head of U.S. Campus Recruiting for Goldman
    Sachs
  • "It shows adaptability. Learning a new business
    is like learning a language and it shows that
    people are able to grasp entirely new concepts."

27
Its All in the Spin
  • HIGHLIGHT IN THE INTERVIEW
  • Cross-cultural fluency
  • Adaptability
  • Independence
  • Drive

28
Additional thought
  • COORDINATE
  • Given the importance of the summer internship, be
    clear on departure date for study abroad.
  • Communicate this to employer in advance

29
Career Services Support
  • I. PRE-DEPARTURE
  • Initiate contact with a Career Services
    Consultant to discuss job search strategy during
    time abroad
  • Develop list of target companies and share with
    Career Services Consultant
  • Update resume on Fisher Connect to include summer
    internship and study abroad info
  • Establish and initiate contact with strategic
    career development network over summer
  • Seek pre-departure company interviews or
    informational interviews (on-campus, phone,
    on-site, video conference)
  • Determine if target companies have branch offices
    near your Study Abroad destination (useful for
    remote interview and/or video conferencing)

30
Career Services Support
  • II. DURING STUDY ABROAD
  • Provide Career Services Consultant with best
    forms of contact (update Fisher Connect resume as
    needed)
  • Check Fisher Connect job postings twice per week
  • Keep Career Services Consultant current on all
    position applications submitted while abroad
  • Use Career Services Consultant to act as
    stateside liaison to arrange resume drops,
    employer outreach, coordination of interviewing
    options, etc
  • Visit target company regional offices further
    develop professional network
