One of the questions we hear a lot from job seekers is “How can I get a job in another location?” Whether it’s another part of the United States or a different country altogether, finding a job somewhere other than in your local area usually requires a creative approach to your job search. In this job searching tip, we’ll discuss ways you can find a job in another place.
JOBS IN OTHER COUNTRIES
When it comes to people who want to work in other countries, the most successful method we’ve heard of is to apply for a job with a company that is based in your home country but has offices in the country you want to move to. For example, Ford Motor Company is based in the United States but has offices in England, France, and other countries. If you’re interested in getting a job in England, a good place to start looking would be companies like Ford that value people who understand American ways of doing business. Another benefit with the Ford example is you could network with people who work at Ford in the United States and possibly even interview with someone in a local office before having to travel to England. In general, when looking for jobs in other countries, large companies with international operations are perhaps the easiest firms to target because they value having people of different nationalities on their staffs.
