Research the countries you would like to work in. You’ll need to find out practical information like what kind of visas and immunizations you’ll need to relocate there. You should also get a grasp of the culture and living conditions of the country you choose. Find out what the cost of living is to make sure you get a job that is sufficient to live comfortably. Be familiar with safety information, medical facilities and travel alerts
Investigate the different routes to a job abroad.
There are many different ways to pursue which will appeal to different people in different circumstances. There are possibilities for short term work, as well as more permanent positions. Once you have an idea about which country you would like to work in, or even if you are undecided, you should spend some time researching the various ways to find a job abroad.
Consider working for a local company that has foreign offices.
Many corporations in the United States have offices in other countries. There also may be small organizations in your area that are satellite offices for international companies. Working in an organization that has international reach can lead to an assignment in an overseas job.
Search for international job postings on regular job sites.
As well as the specialist sites that deal with finding jobs abroad, you shouldn’t neglect the major jobs listing sites and recruitment companies. Many of the largest of these organizations will operate internationally and may advertise for posts abroad alongside domestic ones. Search some of the recruitment sites and check the listings.
Apply for a visa and/or work permit.
Many overseas jobs will not consider you for a position unless you already have a visa or work permit organised. Be sure you understand the requirements for a visa or work permit and know that you will be able to meet them before thinking seriously about applying for a job abroad. The embassy of the country you want to work in will provide information for applying for a Visa.
Make contacts and use your networks
Finding a job abroad can be a difficult prospect. You have to demonstrate not only that you are a good person for the job, but that you can offer something more than the prospective local candidates who will most likely take less time to adapt to the new working environment. Because of this, and the difficulties of breaking into a foreign working culture, it is especially important that you utilize your contacts and networks as much as possible
Consider the language requirements.
The language requirements will vary depending on the type of job you are interested in getting. For example, if you are working for the US government abroad you may find that the majority of people in your office are American and business is conducted solely in English. If you are applying to work in a foreign firm you will probably be expected to be able to work in the native language.
