Have you ever wanted to work abroad? The benefits of international work experience are abundant. For starters, making the decision to work abroad forces you to step outside of your comfort zone which opens up opportunities to develop new skills and gain new experiences making you more attractive to employers seeking to professionals who have been exposed to more advanced processes and structures in international jobs.
A reason why some companies might prefer hiring digital and e-commerce specialists from more established markets. Because the local market is young, digital professionals who have spent their entire career based in some country may lack the experience of their overseas counterparts.
Another instance where companies will put a call out for overseas professionals is to fill skills shortages. For example, candidates with experience in property and construction, oil and gas and technology are currently in high demand as there isn’t enough local talent to fill available roles. In Malaysia 93 % of current jobseekers admit they would consider leaving Malaysia to work overseas.
Before applying, it is important for you to acknowledge the different types of work right visas. The major 3 categorised are:
Full visa sponsorship, an employer is willing to obtain a work visa for highly-qualified candidates who live outside the country.
Visa sponsor from the authorised company. This enables companies to hire employees or workers from other countries and work within their country. This must be provided by a licensed sponsor.
overseas employment is not only a great opportunity for younger people looking for a time-out after college, but also for more adventurous experts who don’t want to settle down yet. Short-term jobs are particularly exciting options for young, fresh graduates about to enter the work force to reflect on their career choices.
