I would really like to spend a couple years, or perhaps many years, working in an emerging economy (Malaysia, Phillipines, Vietnam, Thailand, open to others). I’d say I have 2 real years of finance experience but it is not as research oriented as I’d like it to be.
Networking is a challenge though, as I am currently employed and unable to pick up and just leave. Has anybody had success in this pursuit or do you know anybody who has? I know that the economy is trash, and even if I find anything it’s a huge risk to enter into a brand new job when the global economy may be in the process of tanking again, but that is a chance I am willing to take.
I am not only willing to work in developing countries. I am open to Canada and Australia as well, but the finance job market looks awful there.
