Run, Don’t Walk, From These Companies

Currently I am working from my computer in a Buenos Aires cafe. I am also WhatsApping my brother in Chicago and Facebook messaging a friend in London. This is the new normal. Globalization coupled with economic instability has increased the desire for my generation to find work wherever we can in the world. Technology has made it much easier to do this successfully.

Step by step how to find a job abroad (Part 3: Get Referred)

In the first and second parts of the How I Found Work Abroad series, I walked through the basics steps to complete before ever applying for a job. In the end, getting hired abroad was actually very simple for me. This may come as a surprise, but I did not apply to one job online. And I spent zero time on job boards. Job boards are good for one thing: validating that there is indeed a job market in your…
