[quote=“skeptic yank”]so, here I am living in st.louis almost two years back from China/taiwan making a go of it in the land of my birth. I was over my parents place watching the evening news when my Mom simply stated something I never imagined possible. she said “you should go back to China because there is no future here in this country.”
just like that. then she continued “you can sell your house, bank the profits and even study for your Masters (in Chinese) in China.”
she isn’t the type to even joke around about such.[/quote]
I’ve been hearing that it’s a great time to be back in the US. The recession hasn’t been as bad as predicted, so firms are preparing to invest or at least not hold back on investing in talent. The baby boomers ARE retiring on schedule, although many are turning right around and selling consulting back to their firms. Nevertheless, American firms are concerned about a talent shortage. Meanwhile, headhunters are reporting a business boom unseen since their heyday in the late 90’s.
Has anyone heard the same or otherwise?
If you can package your China experience and use it stay in the US, you may be able to do well.
