Too Many Choices Complicate Job Decisions
I have a background in banking, with experience as an account manager, credit analyst and controller of a dealing room. My temporary position ended in January and I took time off to think about my next step, take a banking course and participate in local politics.
This year hasn't been a good one to find a new position in private banking. So at a job fair in Berlin a few weeks ago, I spoke to consulting companies. I like to be creative and in my last job I volunteered to write product and strategy concepts. Since graduation, I've had some great opportunities that I didn't pursue, probably because I was being too selective.
I'm also thinking about working in private banking in Brazil, where I've visited and have contacts. I'm attracted by the challenge and opportunity to use my language skills and the chance to combine work and travel.
I know it's not all beaches and sunshine, but where can I find information about working in Brazil, besides embassies, the Internet and other traditional sources? Plus, what do you think I should be considering?
