WHAT IS A JOB ABROAD?

A job abroad is by definition an activity that allows an individual to perform a work overseas that is offered by a foreign employer with a worker who will have to leave his country of residence to join his professional occupation.

A job abroad has become essential not only to gain professional experience other than that obtained in one's own country, but to work abroad has become a necessity for any employee whether they are from the Northern or Southern hemisphere.

GO TO WORK ABROAD OR STAY HOME?

Employment abroad or in the home country? Who has not been confronted with this question of staying or going, finding themselves confronted between the comfort of a known environment but where the professional career suffers and the call abroad which seems to bring a unique opportunity but makes fear an adventure that will end badly with a return to the country as a loser.

The answer to this decisive choice will depend on the specific personal situation and the outlook we have of life in general and what it should bring us.

Let's try to objectively assess the advantages and disadvantages of going abroad for a job on the basis of the rich experience of the author of this document who has spent 30 years abroad and who makes the weekly air shuttle between two countries with many other modern nomads.

WHAT ARE THE ADVANTAGES OF WORKING ABROAD?

The advantages of a job abroad do of course exist and must be well evaluated in an objective way, as well as emotionally, depending on the country from which you are moving.

Because if it is a country at war and where it is a question of saving your life and that of your family, there is no need in this case for a SWOT analysis (strengths, weaknesses, threats and opportunities).

The obvious advantages of a job abroad are:

  • Better career opportunities based more on meritocracy than degrees from ‘great’ schools and where personal relationships are decisive.

  • Net wages are often more attractive abroad due to a liberal wage policy and favorable taxation for the employee.

  • Professional success abroad is encouraged and even celebrated and is not envied as at home.

  • A better quality of life due to a more open, less negative and less "loudmouth" and above all less discriminatory cultural environment.

  • A more pleasant working climate with enriching cultural diversity.

  • Personal fulfillment by discovering other ways of living than spending Saturdays washing your car or going to the suburban hypermarket.

  • As long as you master at least English the chances of finding a job abroad are greater than in your own country if the latter suffers from an economic and social crisis.

  • A physical separation from family and friends is now compensated by new telecommunications technologies.

  • Finally: global globalization leaves no other choice than to have great mobility if we want to survive professionally.

WHAT ARE THE DISADVANTAGES OF WORKING ABROAD?

The drawbacks are numerous but are rather related to a fear of loss of comfort that wants to avoid new challenges and prefer stillness over mobility.

Disadvantages that we should rather call side effects of the choice for a job abroad:

  • Working abroad is different than working at home.

  • Fear of the unknown, of a new culture, lack of perfect command of the language.

  • Being a foreigner in a country can be a challenge for some workers.

  • Absence of safe jobs in countries where unions are not existing.

  • Health insurance system less generous than in his country where one goes to the doctor for the slightest scratch.

  • Different retirement system with the risk of losing pension benefits in one's country.

  • Homesickness as soon as a problem arises and you tend to idealize your country.

  • Risk of social isolation if you are introverted.

Advice to follow: do not leave to flee problems or because of a temporary fed up that has no connection with the country where you live.

Because we think the grass is always greener elsewhere and of course, sometimes it is really a question of facing financial obligations and in this case we will have no other choice but to try the adventure, the majority of which have come out of it better than by staying in their country.

FOREIGN EMPLOYEE: EXPATRIATE, BORDER OR IMMIGRANT WORKER?

Also a terminology bordering on hypocrisy, called employees coming from the North and settling in the South, expatriates and those making the opposite route of immigrant workers.

Today, the times are over, contracts are becoming more and more local and whatever the nationality of the candidate, he will have to compete with local candidates who are more and more capable and especially less and less expensive, with less 'expat packages'.

Thus the job market by becoming more and more global, everyone regardless of their origins, will have their chance to find the job of their dreams.

Bureaucratic constraints such as work permits certainly, but when you have unique qualifications anything is possible.

In practice, the flow of workers and employees from North to South and from West to East is increasingly felt, and people commuting between their home and their workstation do not hesitate to travel hundreds of kilometers each week to 'make ends meet'.

VALUABLE TIPS FOR FINDING A JOB ABROAD

There are very many job offers abroad, when a job offer abroad seems to be interesting, it is a question of taking into account the following factors:

  • Not only speak and write the language of the country (English being a definite asset) but also become familiar with local recruitment methods.

  • Adapt your CV to the standard of the country, sometimes certain countries ban the photograph, the date of birth and the gender to avoid any discrimination.

  • Analyze local salaries with the standard of living because there is no point in applying for a position in the salary would be devoured at 75% by housing.

  • Starting at the bottom of the ladder sometimes maybe a smart strategy to first adapt and gain knowledge.

  • Finding a job abroad is all the easier today as recruitment is done online, whether by communicating with the potential employer directly or through recruitment agencies.

  • The sectors using the web the most for recruitment remain services, industry, more particularly commerce and distribution and finally the banking and insurance sector.

Even if cultures and customs differ from country to country, the advice for responding to a job offer on the internet remains the same:

  • Find out about the future employer (company, bank) before responding to an ad. You will prove that you are serious about your initiative to apply.

  • In the application email do not send a message with attachments only, describe your qualities and justify why you deserve the job.

  • Don't overlook: take care of your style and spelling.

WHICH FOREIGN COUNTRIES ARE OFFERING JOB OPPORTUNITIES?

As countries' economies and their economic growth differ, some countries have become job engines to the point where they find it difficult to fill vacant positions. Also currently, job opportunities can be found in the following countries:

  • Europe: Germany (IT specialist, medical staff, engineers), Great Britain (health, gastronomy, construction), Switzerland (hospitality, health).

  • Asia: China, India, Singapore, Malaysia, Indonesia all areas of expertise.

  • Middle East: with Dubai at the forefront (a city that has become expensive), and the other oil-producing countries.

WORK ABROAD WITH NO DEGREE

A job abroad without a degree is defined as a job for which no university studies or higher training will be required from the candidate and is intended for people looking for recruitment outside their country and who have not graduated from a university or a higher education institute.

Recruitment abroad with no degree is quite possible given that many countries are looking for employees with experience in their profession and who sometimes prefer them more to graduates but without solid experience because many graduates of so-called large schools are unemployed in their country.

Employment abroad without a degree is more feasible in countries where the professional value of a candidate is not based on papers certifying theoretical knowledge without practical experience but above all on his ability to carry out his mission.
