International Jobs

International Job Overview

International jobs offer challenging work in a diverse array of geographic locations. International positions are ideal for those who want to travel, experience different cultures and perhaps find less competitive job markets. Common international business careers include sales, advertising, banking and finance, securities trading, human resources and manufacturing management.

Where you travel and how long you stay varies widely by position. If you work for a specific corporation, their international locations will determine where you go. Foreign placements in a company might be indefinite or last only a few months. On the other hand, if you work independently, the demand for your specific product or service will determine your location(s).

International Job Education Requirements

The educational requirements of international jobs depend on the type of position. For example, for sales and advertising international jobs, bachelor's degrees might not be necessary -- many positions only require a high school diploma and relevant experience. By contrast, most positions in the banking, finance and marketing sectors require a bachelor's degree, and, for management positions, an average of five years of relevant work experience. Likewise, those in international securities, commodities and financial services must have a bachelor's degree, and many have a master's degree in business administration (MBA) as well.

International Job Market

The job market for international positions will vary widely by geographic location and profession. Some countries have a pronounced need for certain professionals or demographics. For instance, in New Zealand, the workforce is relatively small, and many young professionals choose to travel abroad after university. This creates a void the country is eager to fill with young, American professionals. Similarly, in China, the booming tech industry has created a clamoring demand for technology professionals. Finally, in the U.K., the increasingly specialized advertising industry needs talented managers and executives and typically pays better than that of the U.S.

International Job Salary Information

Salaries for international jobs will vary considerably by country and position. In many cases, companies select employees for international assignments because of their superior performance and talent. As a result, in addition to a competitive salary, international jobs often come with a host of incentives, including a housing allowance, travel allowance, hazard pay (for those traveling to unstable regions), paid language training, completion bonuses and an expense account. Here are the median salaries for some common international business positions:
  • Financial managers: $126,660
  • Securities and financial services sales agents: $102,510
  • Manufacturing managers: $99,370
  • Human resources specialists: $61,560
  • Human resources managers: $111,180
  • Sales and advertising (entry level): $46,000
  • Sales and advertising managers: $116,000
