Should I stay or should I go

David Brain, president & CEO Edelman Europe, has an interesting piece on his blog about exploring career paths abroad.

David believes that many PRs are too career minded or at least they follow a predictable path to a well paid director position by staying long enough somewhere and counting the days.

He proposes that developing personally by working abroad is an option that many should explore and which will add value to anyones career. You will be a much more marketable proposition.

I am not sure as one comment points out that this is always appreciated and is sometimes seen negatively.

I think you have to do what you will enjoy, be it at home or abroad. Whether you will get a higher wage or better career is something else.
