International trade is involved in everything we own or use— from the food we eat to the cars on the road, the clothing we wear and even the roads and bridges that contribute to every city’s infrastructure. Its presence continues to grow and contribute to the global economy, helping to shape opportunities for prosperity around the world, and particularly here in California. As a result, the careers in global trade are varied and abundant.
The public sector is the part of the economy in which business organizations are wholly or partly owned by an agency of the federal or local government and are controlled through a public authority. International career opportunities in this sector exist in federal and state agencies, as well as international and non-profit organizations.
