By how much can international experience improve your career options?
I'm currently doing an international internship and by such have to wonder about myself a lot. When I sum up my international experience, I have 2 years and a half oversea.
1 year in Japan as an international exchange high -school student. I was 18
1 year in Japan with a Working-Holiday Visa (I have worked a large variety of part time jobs there, figured that it was time to learn about jobs that I will never have to occasions to do again in the future). I was 21
6 months in France for a computer engineering internship on a localisation project. I'm 22.
So it bring me to over 10% of my life was oversea and more than 60% of my adult life.
Realising that I have devoted that much to international experiences, It leaves me to wonder if I have reached a soft cap on the returns it can have on my career options.
I will continue to extend my international experiences, but might slow down to work in my hometown (Quebec City) in more lucrative inernships to gain local experience in my field.
So is there a soft cap on international experiences or does it grows exponentially?
Thanks you very much
