This is a common problem that OFWs have to deal with everyday. Homesickness is an emotional depression, a problem with adapting to your new surroundings. But at some point, you need to recover and don’t let homesickness spoil your working experience. we are not psychologists, but we asked our friends who are working abroad how they survived it.

Pour out your emotions, don’t hold it back

According to our friends, their recovery was faster after they heard some reassuring messages from their loved ones. It’s okay to cry, don’t hold back your feelings because it is natural for you to feel that way. So call your loved ones, let them know of what you are feeling right now. Tell them how much you miss them and everything about the home. After that emotional release, you should feel much better.

Dare to learn something new whether its work related, sports, and/or arts, it will surely help you move one with your new life. Go back in your child days and bring the curiosity back to your system. Learning new things will not only help you recover from homesickness but also will help you become a better person.

Finding The Right Job Overseas

working abroad

It’s no secret that more people nowadays are looking for work in other countries.

This could be due to their dream of being able to work in a foreign land, as well as their desire to make their lives better. This could also be due to their loved ones’ dream of being able to step in a foreign land, as well as their desire to make their loved ones’ life better.

No matter what the reason, however, it should never come to a point where one has to illegally work in a foreign land – exposing yourself more on unknown dangers within the area you’re currently in.

That being said, here are some ways to find the right job overseas:

Look into government portals.

Believe it or not, government agencies like the Department of Foreign Affairs offer lots of jobs overseas. This doesn’t only prove that a country cares deeply for its people, but also proves that a country’s government especially cares deeply for its people. This doesn’t only prove that jobs overseas can be safe, but also proves that there are jobs overseas that are safer than others.

Look into credited agencies.

We all know how convincing about working abroad some agencies can be. However, we also know how conniving about working abroad other agencies can be. Thus, it’s only right for you to look into credited agencies. This allows you not just to have leverage over the conditions being set by some agencies due to strict compliance with the law, but also to have leverage over the conditions being set by other agencies that go against the law.

Do you agree with these points? Why or why not?
