Leveraging international work experience?IB
Hey guys, I had a view questions regarding international work experience.
Just some background
3.4 GPA Econ at top public (umich, berk, uva)
Internship at Bain (Seoul), China Unicom and tiny local start up
Active in 1-2 clubs
Fluent in chinese, korean, japanese
I've been networking and it's been decently successful. Some alumni have contacted me back, but the only "tangible" success that I've gotten were from Tokyo/Seoul/HK.
I wouldn't mind working abroad for a few years at all, but nearly everyone that I've talked to strongly suggested that I start in NY/America for banking. My eventual goal is an MBA and then working in the states long term.
I'm not too optimistic for FT recruitment given my low GPA, so there's a very good chance that I'd start my career overseas at a multinational.
I guess my question is...how do NY banks view overseas work experience? Is it really viewed that badly? Would it be better to take a job at a MM/Corp Fin here in the states vs BB bank/Equity research in Tokyo/HK?
