- Focus your studies: Even if you aren’t majoring in international studies, make sure you broaden your skills inventory with internationally-focused electives or major research projects.
- Get an MA or MSc: Almost all international jobs require you to have a master’s degree nowadays. Why not study in another country?
- Network: Foreign students, experts in your field and people using online travelogues can all help you broaden your cross-cultural knowledge. Don’t be shy!
- Be bold: Almost all successful international professionals did something extraordinary to land their first job. So, do the same.
- Your International IQ is up to you: International IQ can’t be taught, it must be developed through study, work and experience. Those with high International IQs are much more likely to succeed in the global workplace, so get proactive!
