Looking for a change – Ever considered overseas job opportunities?

Ever dreamt about securing a role with an overseas company and combining work with your love of adventure and travel? With the global job boards and the use of Skype it has never been easier if you are thinking about an international move.  With South East Asia still going through aggressive growth – the Aussie and Kiwi  “right of passage” no longer necessarily means going to the UK for a 2-year stint.

Australian experience is highly regarded in the Asian business market and opportunities closer to home in Hong Kong, Singapore and Vietnam have become increasingly accessible in recent times, with most organisations doing business in English, the request for Australian/NZ qualifications is more prevalent than ever.

But before you think about such a life-changing move you need to consider the pros and cons and what it will mean to your career.  Questions to ask and things to consider; what is the financial reward/tax regime in the country you are considering, is the organsiation and role going to add value to your resume and future job prospects, what are the conditions of your employment contract.

Do your research, understand the cost of living in a foreign country and if all the stars align why wouldn’t you take the chance and immerse yourself in a different culture for a few years, you might be surprised what you learn and what it will do for your career.

Life adventures and considered risks are never a bad thing in my opinion.
