Summary: In this Q&A article, learn how you can find import-export work in the United States with a master’s degree from a foreign university.
Question: I am 24 years old and have a master’s degree in international business from a university in India. I am eligible to work in the U.S., but I don’t know where to start. Where can I find information on import/export companies that could provide a good fit?
Answer: Securing your first job will likely be the toughest move of your career, so view your initial assignment as a steppingstone. To secure your first position, select one or two focus areas. Many first-job candidates lose out in interviews because they sound scattered and ambivalent. It is important to be flexible but focused.
Consider any contacts you have or could develop. For instance, try to find out where in the U.S. some of the graduates of your program have landed. Contact them, explaining that you are a graduate of the same program who is seeking advice and possible leads. Be sure that your resume is ready and that you are prepared to present yourself in a positive light, emphasizing the skills and enthusiasm you have to offer. In the current competitive job market, this process will take diligence. Once hired, take every opportunity to gain experience that will position you favorably for your next search.Where Can I Find Import-Export Jobs? by Granted Contributor
