Careers in export sales and marketing will become increasingly attractive to younger, more worldly-oriented Americans. One reason is the gradual growth of wealth in all nations outside the United States. The share of U.S. wealth in global GDP has declined from 40% in 1960 to 23% in 2016 (Source: The Wall Street Journal, July 29, 2016, page A13.)
James Chan, Ph.D., outlines the opportunities and the mindset required to pursue well-paying careers selling and exporting American-made products and services overseas. Based on 35 years of hands-on experience with 100 U.S. firms that export products and services to China and Asia, he will draw your attention to a range of jobs, such as export coordinators, international trade specialists, area sales managers, marketing consultants and manufacturer representatives to being owners of export trading firms. The Free Library has excellent resources in this area, which decades ago gave Dr. Chan a head start in developing his career as a consultant to exporters.
