My advice would be it is definitely a job where if you work hard and maintain your ambition you can have a satisfying career.

You will need patience, drive and commitment and be able to adapt to change. The skills you will learn with this job will be lifelong skills.

Studying Abroad

Why study abroad? Many studies show that a period spent abroad enriches a student’s life in both the academic and professional fields. The experience improves language-learning, intercultural skills, self-reliance and self-awareness. Many employers value this experience highly and it can increase the students' employability and job prospects going forward.
