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

Partnered with a local company. Biggest challenge- finding an HONEST partner.

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

My advice would be to try to get your company to transfer you to the place you would like to work OR obtain a contract from a company which is working in the country you would like to visit.
