I’m currently studying for an MSc in Computer Science in UK. I’ll be graduating later this year and am starting to look for work with the intention of joining a graduate scheme. I’m planning to apply for Java programming and/or data mining positions, although that’s not set in stone. My grades have been good so far, with an average of 68.5%. Ideally I’d like to join a company in the UK that has a global presence and would require me to go to different parts of the world to work for them. I lived in Japan for a few years and would like to be posted somewhere in Asia, although a job that entailed any sort of international travel would be really attractive. When I say travel, I don’t mean sitting on a beach, I mean working and living in different cultures.
Could anyone recommend what sort of position and/company could provide this? I’m thinking big multinationals like IBM, Siemens and so on, but should I be aiming to join on a graduate scheme and work my up to that position - or could it be possible right away? I understand getting on a graduate scheme is no easy task, but I’m just thinking “if”
Any advice or input would be hugely appreciated, I really don’t know much about the IT corporate world yet, but am willing to learn.
