I've spent 12 years living and studying in the US. Now I come to the conclusion that I should go back to Mongolia and contribute to its development through what I have learned in American schools. However, I am anxious about going back. One of the major fears that I have about going back is that there is a system in Mongolia that does not value academic and professional merit but promotes the power of connections and "buying" job posts. What would you advise to those like me who are contemplating a return to our homeland and pursue professional careers there? Thank you.
