Work Abroad

 

What to know before you start looking

Your options to connect with organizations based in another country may be limited by the languages you speak, whether you can obtain a work visa, the salary the organization can afford to pay you, and how much it will cost you to get there. These obstacles, however, should not discourage you from trying to find work abroad; instead they should give you a sense of the skills and resources you need to acquire to make yourself a competitive candidate while helping you focus on the opportunities that best fit you.

International nonprofits may be your best bet for finding work abroad. Many of these organizations list their job openings, internships, and volunteer opportunities. These listings provide us with the sense of what types of jobs are available, and the qualifications required for the positions.

Keep in mind that it’s often more difficult to find a salaried position in an international agency without previous field experience or a relevant graduate degree. To start, consider an internship or volunteer work abroad so you can gain field experience that could eventually materialize into permanent employment, keep in mind that we will guide you through.


The basics of working abroad

The first step in working abroad is to determine the who, what, where, when, and how. Think about your motivations for seeking paid employment in another country—are you hoping to learn a new skill? We can help you build an international CV with just $35.

Knowing more about why you want to work abroad will help you determine what types of jobs would be the best fit. Also, start thinking about when you’d like to go, how long you’d like to stay, and where in the world you’d like to work, volunteer, and travel. If want help just contact us.


The Logistics

Choosing to live and work in a country other than your own likely involves a range of logistical challenges, from visas and red tape on residency and taxation issues, to linguistic and cultural differences, to potential difficulties presented by your target country’s economic and political stability. Careful research is essential to learning about and overcoming these challenges. You’ll have to take the lead, but many of the resources on this page.
