Career Wanderlust: How To Get Hired Abroad

 

Regular readers of this blog will know that the dream is to work while traveling. There’s nothing like standing in front of Machu Picchu in the morning and blogging about it for money in the evening. Not everyone can be freelance writers, though. Some people will need to be in the office, 9am while 5pm, just like at home. Still, isn’t it better to live in an exotic country and enjoy everything it has to offer? The answer is yes!

 

Before you begin packing your bags, it’s important to remember one thing – getting hired abroad is tough. Below are four tips which can help make it happen.

 

Get Residency

 

The trick is to make the process as straightforward as possible… for the employer. The last thing a business wants to do is become involved in a drawn-out deal which never ends. What with the visa situation, the contract negotiations and the impacts on the tax bill, hiring foreign workers can be unappealing. However, people on the subcontinent that have visited aadharcardportal.com will know how important the card is. Because it’s proof of residency in India, one quick flash will prove to an employer that you are eligible to work without the usual, protracted talks.

 

Choose Wisely

 

Everyone has dreams which they want to turn into reality. Part of the ideal ideas is the country. Working in America always seems to appeal, as does Canada and Mexico. On average, these are three of the hardest nations for which to obtain a visa. The Americans, for example, only hand out green cards to people with jobs. Canada, on the other hand, has a select few and doesn’t give out any more after they have gone. As a rule, Australia and New Zealand are more welcoming to outsiders. Aus has a list of professions it will sponsor, while NZ provides visas up until the age of 35 according to immigration.gvt.nz.

 

Network Properly

 

By “properly,” it means taking the plunge and asking for a favor. The chances are your black book of contacts has email addresses and phone numbers of people around the world. Still, you haven’t spoken to them in a while and don’t want to seem needy. This is how people that want to work abroad never get the chance. Remember that all they can say is no and there are no other repercussions. So, it’s worth asking even if they get mad. Make it clear you’re willing to do them a service for their efforts.

 

Join An Agency

 

If you don’t have the contacts, then an agency will as it’s their job. And, these businesses are willing to share because they get paid for recruitment. The key is to apply to the ones which specialize in foreign hires. If you like, you can find an agency in the area you plan to live in and sign-up. Some can find well-paid positions in less than a week which fit the bill.

 

Let’s face facts and admit it’s less hassle to offload the responsibility onto someone else’s shoulders, right?
