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

My work permit was arranged by my employer. As far as I know all work permits must be arranged by employers so I don't have any advice for others.

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

Check out your prospective employer very very carefully. Do NOT believe what your recruitment agent tells you. If at all possible try to get some feedback from people who already work for your prospective employer (difficult I know but invaluable if you can do it).
