This memorandum analyzes five industries of personal interest and potential job opportunities within each, as well as an analysis of Spain’s economy and identifying the process of working as an expatriate. The goal of this project is to lay out the career opportunities in various industries in and out of the United States, the situation of their environments, and rationalizing them in an evaluative method. Each industry of interest will be analyzed on their economic strength, sociopolitical environment, and geographic area of focus. The top five companies in each industry will also briefly analyzed, comparing their overall employee approval rating on and most recent revenue. These ratings come from a weighted average based on the recent reviews of employees. Companies with a rating between 0.0 to 1.9 will be seen as unfavorable, 2.0 to 2.9 as less favorable, 3.0 to 3.9 as favorable, and 4.0 to 5.0 as excellent. From these top five companies, two specific career opportunities will be identified, looking at an in-depth analysis of the companies based on the experience of current and previous employees. Although this project is intended for personal direction, other students looking for a description of what is available to them after graduation could use this as a source of discovery, or simply for direction on how to evaluate different industries available to them.
