How did you obtain your work permit? What advice would you have for others about work permits?

Permit arranged by the government or employer here. Very simple. If employer will not arrange the permit do not come - they are not a legitimate outfit.

If you were transferred abroad by your employer, were you guaranteed a job upon repatriation? What type of mentoring programs does your employer offer?

N/A - although teaching is in great need of teachers worldwide so can pretty much write own ticket

What advice would you offer others about finding jobs and working abroad?

Research, research and then research. talk to people who have been there ( and not just on holiday). Go online and listen to what people say about the place - be aware of bitter and cynical people - but then again what has turned them this way?

Go to as many sites/books/sources as you can - forewarned is forearmed
