Are you 100% sure that you really want this?
We all have our reasons why we want to work abroad and leave our comfort zone. But whatever reasons you may have, I wish that you have thought of it thoroughly and repeatedly. Working abroad is not easy as we should all adjust from what we are used to and embrace a whole new life on foreign country of our choice. Off course, we all know that the first thing we need to do is to make sure that there is a job waiting for us overseas.
Go to international job fairs
Find out the nearest job fairs that have international clients. We recommend this process because you’ll be interviewed right away. And by any chance that you pass the interview, you can ask questions to get more idea about the job. It’s a real time communication which is very important in assessing whether working abroad is for you.
Exhaust the internet
You can exhaust all the jobs overseas online. Did you ask yourself where would you like to work? If you already have a country in your mind, you can simply filter your search engine to the country where you would like to work. Another thing you can do is to set up a Linkedln account and know more companies and contacts that can help you get a job. You can visit Craiglist, Monster, Seek, and Linkedln.
Find reputable study and work later programs
Countries are now offering this fabulous opportunity to those foreigners who would like to work in their country. They would help you acquire student easier. Often times we find it easier to get a student visa than working visa and with the help of these programs, you’ll have more structured way of completing the requirements you need.
