Excellent answers already to this very good question! You've already assembled a terrific resume and show initiative in making yourself a valuable addition because you can speak four languages. That is hard work. In addition to the above, you can certainly do some research in the host countries you'd like to be in. What companies are best to work for? Do any of them offer internships?

Enjoy the learning process and good luck!

Hi Sabrina,
Based on the languages that you speak you will be well positioned to work in UK, France and almost any country covering Eastern Europe. I would suggest to take a look into Linkedin for open positions in multinational companies. There are a lot of companies that have graduates program for people like you, also look for any open role that contains the word Associate, Junior or asking for entry level.

Alex’s Answer

Hello Sabrina
It’s really impressive that you can speak four languages. I would suggest that you explore social networking possibilities, 1- you can create a LinkedIn profile (if you do not already have one) and if you can afford it, get a premium subscription to show to the hiring managers that you are interested to get a job abroad. 2-I would also encourage you to search and join social media events were you could meet with professionals based in the countries you are targeting. Exchanging with them could give further perspectives. 3- to develop your network abroad, use one or two social networking platform and join groups which cover your (non-professional or professional) day to day areas of interest, this should facilitate getting new contacts.

Alex recommends the following next steps:

Create a LinkedIn profile if you do not have one
Subscribe as a premium user if you can
Join groups of interest with members based in the targeted countries
Explore a second social networking platform
Join non professional group of interest with members based in your targeted countries and participate in their discussions to make yourself known

HI Sabrina,

I am so glad you are interested in global opportunities. I work mostly with teams around the world on a day to day basis. I am located in NJ and work in accounting with PwC. There are different ways to work internationally. It can be to go work in a different country for few months/ years, it can be by finding a position in the US that is international and work with teams around the world. I worked in France, Belgium, and now for almost 20 years in the US. Depending on what type of position/ work you would like to do, there are many ways to be working internationally. I would be happy to discuss further if you would like to expand.

Bon courage!

Heidi’s Answer

Hello from a fellow Michigander! If you're doing research for your graduate degree, consider applying for the Fulbright Student Program (https://us.fulbrightonline.org/)! They'll fund a year of research, study, or English teaching assistantships abroad. Your institution likely has a designated person (Fulbright Program Advisor or FPA) that can help you through the application process - you can find your institution's advisor on the Fulbright website. There may also be opportunities available through your local Rotary club for funding for research or study overseas. Good luck!

Rebecca’s Answer

Hi Sabrina, I am glad that you can speak so many languages and interested t work abroad. It is valuable experience to work in different countries and under their culture.
From time to time, large global corporates would recruit their management trainees from time to time. Some of them may conduct recruitment campaign in the campus or they would put the post on their career website or other hiring websites. They usually would conduct the training in one location and assign the trainees to practice in different locations. The trainees could indicate their preference as well. However, it would subject to the corporate internal demand and availability whether the trainee would be assigned to work in Europe.
On the other hand, you can keep an eye on European corporates career website they would hire fresh graduates . However, you may need to consider the cost and logistics to move to Europe if they give you the offer.
Also, if you have any corporates that you are interested to work for, you can send them your cv to look for opportunities proactively.
Hope this helps! Good Luck!
