I would like to ask for some advices and profile evaluation.

I have written below an overview of my profile and the question in bold+italic.

General Background

I am brazilian-asian male, 26 year old, bachelor degree in economics and technical high school degree in IT.

Took twice (640 and 690). Should I retake it?

Work experience
2 years as electronic technician in telecommunication mid size company doing IT functions.
2 years as IT manager in a small brokerage house managing the whole IT area and leading a 5 member team.
1,5 year as Finance Trainee in a Petrochemical Company doing job rotation in various areas.
11 months in KPMG corporate finance as senior consultant.

Total 6,5 years of work experience all in Brazil.

Graduated in top schools of Brazil, though not among the best. Studied 6 months in business courses in Sweden for an exchange program, got a scholarship.

Extra activities
Volunteer in military training in high school.
Volunteer web design for family planning department of an important university-hospital. Volunteer in a neighborhood church to help organizing computer sales.
Did academic paid research on public pension system in Brazil.


Got a job opportunity outside my country for a 2 years period. It is more likely a traineeship program in various job finance area rotation during 2 years, it is some kind of finance executive formation.
My first question is: “Is it worth to postpone my application to take this opportunity?

My next question is: “What can I do to improve my chances if I have one year or two to prepare myself?
