Working Abroad: Landing the Job Overseas
Working overseas is an amazing opportunity to learn another culture and business practices. This experience makes you more valuable to any global company trying to expand their business into the overseas market.
What are the best approaches to gaining these opportunities?
- Gain an entry level position in a global company.
- Training courses at companies like HP, IBM, Roche, McKenzie Consulting can open the door to these roles.
- Communicate your interest in working in a specific country in a specific role.
- Set your goal with your manager to gain the role of your choice.
- Research and learn the local language and cultures
Obviously learning the local language is also a plus. Your understanding of some of the key cultural issues can also allow you to reduce the learning curve. Blending into the company, team and culture are all keys to your success.
Finding a market and area of focus takes research and experience. No one is likely to pay to relocate you and provide you the advantages of an Expat unless you put in your dues. Count on at least a full year in the workforce prior to fulfilling your dream of working overseas.
