Wondering How to Conduct an International Job Search?

What do you think about this article? Rate it using the stars above and let us know what you think in the comments below.
Working overseas is an exciting opportunity that is being increasingly sought by educators, especially graduating students or those who have been in the industry for many years. Unfortunately, many people find the process of overseas job hunting confusing and complex. Job seekers can relieve this feeling if they do some research prior to beginning the job search process.

Searching for an international job is much like searching for a local position. It involves planning and effort; after all, "looking for a job is a job." Job hunting can cause tension and anxiety, so it helps to think of the search as a challenge and a great learning experience. Before undertaking your job search, be sure to read and research to find opportunities. Talk to international recruitment or placement firms to learn of job possibilities and obstacles you may face during your search.

There are unique considerations in conducting an international job search. The market is extremely competitive. While some job seekers will land jobs with ease, many will need to be persistent and thorough to get what they desire. In order to be successful, you must be determined not to give up.

The following are some important points to consider and research before you begin your search.
  • Foreign language skills
  • Networking application procedures
  • Overseas experience
  • Differences in resumes and correspondence
  • Interviewing
  • Passports
  • Visas and work permits
  • Salaries, taxes, and the cost of living
  • Health concerns
  • Transportation
  • Women gaining respect in their fields
Finding employment is not the only way to expand your overseas experience and is not the only way to build your skills. Studying and traveling can be great ways to follow your interests overseas, while gaining credentials that future schools will value.
