I Am A Student Majoring In International Business, How Can I Get A Head Start In My Career From Now?

Posted at: International Trade Jobs | Posted on: Mon 12 Feb, 2007 3:54 am |
We received this question in email so we are sharing the answer to it in this forum to benefit others who may have the same goal.

Question: I am currently a student majoring in International Business. How can I get a head start in my career and obtain some experience in this field while I am a student?


You can do many things:

• Get to know international trade associations in your area and try to participate in some of their activities. Attend their meetings (if possible) and benefit from their experience and connections. Many of these associations accept students as special members with very low dues. To know which associations exist in your area, you can look up the yellow pages phone directory listings or visit your school library or a public library and look for a reference about associations. Associations in these directories are listed categorized by type, geographical location, etc.

• Follow international trade news by reading international trade publications. We have provided a list for some of these trade news resources at http://www.traderscity.com/board/viewtopic.php?t=5

• Want to be on the creative side? Why don't you start a newsletter in your school carrying news and articles about international trade. The newsletter can also be your key to meet with international trade companies that interest you by simply interviewing them for an article in your newsletter. Go for it. One day, it might even grow to become a major trade magazine or at the least you would have established a number of crucial connections for your future.

• Intern with an import export company or a company with an export department. Even offer to help with their export paperwork as a win-win offer.

Everyone is welcome to add any ideas and recommendations to this post.
