More Relevant Than Ever: Going Abroad Pays Off for Women

Working abroad can fast-track your career, broaden your professional capabilities, increase your pay, and expand your personal horizons.  Women who break the glass ceiling and rise to the top today are often those who have worked internationally.

In her latest online column How it Can Pay Off for Women to Work Abroad for the Washington Post, Selena Rezvani agrees, highlighting our book, Get Ahead By Going Abroad, in her piece in which she emphasizes that “working abroad can earn a young professional serious stripes.” She offers examples of women who have done just that, similar to the hundreds surveyed in our book.

There’s no doubt it’s a trend, and it’s more relevant than ever.

Think Indra Nooyi, Chairman and CEO of PepsiCo, who regularly references her global experience as key to her rise and profitableleadership of Pepsi; and Diane Gulyas, President of DuPont Performance Polymers, who not only has years of experience living and working abroad, but who advises young professionals regularly: go overseas. Patricia Woertz, Chairman and CEO of ADM, who led international operations and a global workforce as a stepping stone in her career.

Going overseas can fast-track your career and expand your personal horizons beyond your wildest dreams. If you love adventure and thrive on taking risks, going global could be your ticket to the fast track.  GO GLOBAL!
