So you want to know how to find work overseas.
First you need to know, working in your own country alone can be a
challenge so if you desire to work abroad then there is one quality that you
simply must have. Determination. If you are planning to work, move or travel
to say, Italy , France , Thailand or some exotic island, then this quality
Once you have the determination you then need to have a strategy on how
to find work overseas and getting that job abroad. So how do you make it
Here are 5 strategies that you can use to start your journey.
1) Just Do it
Pack your bags and GO. Now this strategy is simple but definitely not for
the weak of heart. Pick a country, go there and hope all goes well. But of
course you need to so some planning before hand. Do some research on your
chosen countries job market, get some contacts that you can use or call when
you arrive. Be sure you have some pocket money on the side to last you until
you find a job there.
As you can see, there are risks involved. You may, or may not find a job.
If anything else, you have had an adventurous experience.
2) Get Posted Abroad
Find a company that is known for sending their employees abroad and work
for them. Of course its no guarantee that you will be chosen when the next
posting comes around so letting your manager know of your interest might
help. I know of a few friends who worked for 5 star hotels and actually got
3) Volunteer Programs
Take time out and do something worthwhile! Volunteer. There are several
volunteers programs you can check out. Often times volunteering can be very
hard but the sense of achievement is enormous.
4) Go Back to School
There are plenty of opportunities in other countries, from teaching
courses, language courses to ongoing programs in archeology. Once you are
there, try and get as many local connections that you need in order to get a
paid job. These information you can use later in the future. Having said
that, you should also be fully aware of the rules and restrictions for work
Remember, you are there under a student visa, so taking a full time job
may get you into trouble. And that is the last thing you need.
Everyone has their own skills that they could benefit from. What you can
do here, you can most probably do overseas. You can freelance as
consultants, technical writers, journalists, graphic artists, modeling,
teach English or any language that you know. You will be surprised at how
quickly your income generates by just freelancing.
Hope that helps and get you started on how to find work overseas.
