If you see setbacks as a challenge, ‘not according to plan’ as an opportunity and don’t shy away from a role with responsibility… You might be fit for a job in international market development. 

We don’t care what you studied, if you will take your next step in international market development or you’re about to make a career change.

We care about your character, perseverance, commercial drive and entrepreneurial mindset. It takes some character to be responsible for new client acquisition, building and maintaining relations across the globe. You will sell, be responsible for revenue growth. You will probably sleep in shitty hotels, or in the back of an Uber... Travel and dine alone most of the time...
