I have often heard it said that international work experience is crucial for success in finding work in MNCs today.
Most people who progress up to board level later on in their careers will acquire this experience at some point. However, is it gaining international experience a worthwhile pursuit for those still seeking to get on the job ladder such as new graduates.
As the graduate career market toughens, graduates will have to work harder and be smarter to separate themselves from the competition. Whilst some may think this means doing postgraduate degrees and rubbing shoulders at countless networking events, there is another way.
Internships in China are now becoming increasingly available for Western students and graduates through programs like [/url] http://www.crccasia.com

As the world becomes a smaller place and students are increasingly internationalising, working abroad is no longer seen as a far-fetched pipe dream. The experience it provides can be just as or indeed more valuable than a post-graduate or professional qualification.
Do you think interning abroad is a worthwhile pursuit?
