Instead of sticking a rabbit’s foot in your pocket for your first big job interview, why not cultivate skills and talents that are going to bring you guaranteed luck? New grads that land plum job assignments have learned to provide the employer with the skills they most desire, like a second language. When they apply for entry level jobs, on sites like Firstjob.com, they stand out from the rest by virtue of their additional global skills.
Global Marketplace Demands Global Skills
Companies are not just doing business in the United States anymore. They have offices in China and the European Union. They may have a factory in Mexico and buyers in Japan. To land a fresh graduate job in a foreign country, you need to have the skills that make it easier to work in a global marketplace.
What Skills Can Help You Stand Out?
Proficiency in more than one language is valuable. However, that’s just the start. Here are a few traits which employers like in global candidates:
• Willingness to travel, • Familiarity with other cultures, • Speaking/writing more than one language, • Excellent English skills, and • Business and personal connections in foreign countries.
