Why working overseas could be a great opportunity to enhance your career

Jetting off to live and work overseas may a big decision for many of us. However more and more young professionals from the UKare open to working overseas, whether on a temporary or permanent basis. Hunting for job opportunities in Australia and New Zealand, UAE and certain parts of Asia such Japan and Singapore has become the norm among budding professionals. Working overseas may sound daunting but it comes with plenty of positive opportunities. If you have any doubts about pursuing an overseas job keep reading to clear your fears!

Boosts your resume

One of the biggest benefits of working abroad is that it will be a gold star on your resume. Those who plan to move back to their home country will be highly benefited by their work experience abroad. Working in a foreign country will inevitably enhance your personal skills such as flexibility, communication and adaptability. Working in a diverse environment can also have a direct impact on your ability to work in a team. Your resume can be garnished with qualities that make you a successful leader with overseas work experience.

Cultural exposure

Working abroad is not only good on your CV but it’s the best way to come out of your comfort zone. A fresh cultural experience will not only boost your professional skills, but it can also have a positive impact on your personal perspective. Taking on opportunities to work with new communities can be of particular benefit, or perhaps your current employer is planning on expanding into an overseas market such as Australia or New Zealand?

Financial incentives

One of the top reasons young professionals turn to the overseas job markets is the lack of opportunities and constraints in their home country. The indecision caused by Brexit may have compounded the problem. Even though there is no guarantee of finding a high paying job overseas, many expats claim to have better financial incentives. The financial incentives may not only be due to higher salaries but also cost of living and a better lifestyle.

Gain work experience

Many young professionals lack opportunities to gain work experience. If you are in an industry where finding employment is difficult or overly competitive then working abroad will not only give you work experience but also open up new career opportunities.

    – Maxine Warhurst & Family, Australia
  • Now that I have scraped myself off the ceiling following the exciting news regarding my VISA grant I received on Friday, I just wanted to pass on my thanks for your part in making all of this possible. A number of years ago I had a phone consultation with another company (didn’t know about OE at the time) and came away disheartened as there thoughts on my success at this was far from favourable. Yet on conversation with Laurence he stated to me that I could get a visa without state sponsorship and it would take 7 months and that I should be wary of the IELTS test. If I have my dates correct it took about 9 months but would have been 7 were it not for the IELTS test! Again, your patience support and effort were greatly appreciated and I have passed on this experience to a number of friends who are also thinking of making the move and that they should use OE.

  • Things are working out really well for us in NZ and I am more than happy for my comments to be posted on your website, I meant what I said regarding my positive view of your company and I would like people to know.
