From finding a job to obtaining a work permit to learning how to work in a foreign language and culture, working abroad requires tremendous motivation and patience. Offer advice to other job seekers and transferees who are following in your footsteps.

As a way of helping expats research life abroad, Expat Exchange uses advice shared in our Expat Report Series to create articles that aggregate information about specific topics relevant to international relocation. We never include private information when we do this. Even though we NEVER sell, rent, or share our members private information, please consider carefully what private or personal information you share with others in our Expat Reports. Read more
