To have a chance at one day living and working across the pond, Tyler Smith needed a [bu:st]. He got just that when an internship with the German company led to something bigger. "They offered me a job I just couldn't turn down," he says. "I'm really excited about it. There are only about 20 people in the states who work for [bu:st]. Most of them are in Europe, so I'm hoping I'm going to be learning German, so maybe I'll get the opportunity to work in Europe for a few years." Until then, he will be doing project management consulting, which is basically helping companies maximize efficiency. "I didn't really imagine staying in Greenville, but here I am," Smith says.
