Q and A – Am an Expat in Brazil. Am successful here. How can I turn that into future success with a career change?

Q and A – Am an Expat in Brazil. Am successful here. How can I turn that into future success with a career change?

QUESTION

I have a few questions about working in intelligence. I am an American living in Brazil and I have a gift with foreign languages and a lifelong passion for geopolitics. My current career works well for me but I can see the day when it will be time for a change. There is time for planning ahead. What path would you suggest that would make me a potential winner in the intelligence career field in the years ahead?

ANSWER

Brazil will be important for decades to come as a geopolitical focus. Its BRIC membership assures it a place in the ‘we care’ category.

Brazil is interesting not for its politics but for its economic potential. It is just different enough that it unlikely to become an India or a China, but it has a great potential for other things.

Become a Subject Matter Expert (SME) on Brazil and its ability to project and/or to develop its economic base to being G8 status and someone will want to hire you.

BTW — a degree will be important. You will need a bachelor degree as a minimum and I recommend that you work on a master degree. Please do not waste your time with some degree in International Relations or politics or languages. There is nothing wrong with these degrees but they seldom lead you to employable situations. These are helpful and insightful but not the hallmark of being an SME. I would recommend either something in International Trade or Enterprise Commerce or Business Systems Analyst.
