What jobs include lots of international travel?

International Business student and no clue what I want to do. There's no big hotel chains near me, and the closest international airport is an hour commute (plus I can't swim so no flight attendant job).

I'm an automation engineer in automotive industry and I travel internationally few times a year on 2+ months long business trips to commission new factories.

Sounds awesome but I have zero interest in engineering unfortunately. Thanks though.

Consulting, International Law, Advisory, any banking role that is "global."
>>
>>1034875
Some specialised/boutique investment banks offer extended work travel. Had a friend that's gone to some interesting places for his IB, Saudi Arabia, Japan etc for months at a time working on massive projects
>>
>>1034889
That sounds interesting. Can you go into more detail?

>>1034887
Is advisory and consulting work about getting drunk, socializing and being a host to people? Cause if not, I think I'd really enjoy it.
>>

Well my friend had an internship at a pretty small investment bank. I think they specialised in real estate or something and had massive projects that they oversaw (im pretty sure this is what they did) all around the world.

I don't know what his role was or would have been, but, he was offered to go to saudi arabia to assist in a massive hotel being built i think.

You are going to need to be from a 'good' school or an ivy league one and you will need solid grades.

If you can, grab a more prestigious degree like law with ur business

Consultant here. Live and work in UAE for a US firm. Lots of travel, some schmoozing/socialising but thats minimal, especially if youre below 10 years xp.

>investment bank specializing in real estate

I'm super interested in real estate, maybe I should try to combine the two.
>>
>>1034901
details please!

What's an average day/month look like? Did you know this is where you'd end up? Is it where you wanted to be? How'd you get where you are? What'd you study? etc.
>>
>>1034903

>>

BS in International Business at SNHU online (pls don laugh). Went from HS dropout neet for 7 years to having a part time job, GED, sophomore in college and an apartment, I like to think I'm doing ok so far.

Double degree? Like double major? I'm not sure. I honestly rather spend that time learning a second language first. 3.7 GPA. It's piss easy work, and I'm basically retarded.
>>
>>1034955
sooooo when you write down on your resume where you graduated from....is it caled SNHU Online or can you write SNHU.

How the fuck do they do tests without you cheating?

I meant double degree, like some people do law and they do business or they do psychology and they do teaching. Double major is also good.
>>
>>1034958
SNHU

I explicitly asked this before enrolling because it's very important to me. I didn't want any stigma attached. I also lived and got my GED in close to the school's main campus so I can probably white lie this part.

No idea. There's not too many tests. Tons of essays though.

Like at the same time? I've never heard of this before. Do they need to do the general education curriculum twice? Like if I'm an intl biz student who wants to double degree in law, do I need do take the same core classes twice even if they overlap?
>>
>>1034966

Is that not a thing in America?

Well in Australia you are able to get 2 degrees with slightly more work, however, it is quicker than getting 2 degrees one after the other.

For example, Engineering and Business. Engineering is typically 4 years, business is 3. A double degree of them takes 5 years with a little bit more classes.

We don't have a general education curriculum like u guys do, we literally have 1 degree full of business shit and 1 degree full of engineering shit and whatever majors you choose. We don't have core classes either.

I didn't think that US tertiary education was that different than Australian. Typically high end graduate positions very much prefer double degree graduates than single degree graduates for a variety of reasons which is why I suggested you do it, but, if thats not a thing in the US, don't worry about it.

Some people do doubles, some don't.


Well, I wouldn't put online on your resume. Get an internship or anything that will boost your chances. Work for a wider range of opportunities in the future so that way when you do decide upon career path you can do it.
