How do you find a company that will let you move abroad?
What I've wanted to do for a long time is to be able to regularly post international jobs here, with a particular focus on jobs where the employer is willing to sponsor international candidates. One company in Western Europe has contacted me and is hoping that my readers match their hiring needs. There are a couple of final details which are being ironed out, but it will work like this.
I'll create a "jobs" page on this site, listing the jobs available. Currently these will be front-end and back-end software development roles, but in the future, who knows? If one of the jobs strikes your fancy, you'll drop me an email and we'll set up a time for a quick phone/Skype call. On the call, you'll be asked a few questions to make sure that you know what you're getting into. You'll also be given more details about the nature of the work. You will be able to ask some questions regarding logistics, the job, or "what the heck is like living in another country?"
I then forward your CV and/or cover letter.
The company will take over from there and arrange full interviews. If you get an offer, they'll sponsor your work permit and help with your relocation costs.
This has been in the works for a long time and I'm hoping this will be successful — if for no other reason than helping people live their dreams.
Please note that I am not a recruiter; I'm an expat consultant. I won't be judging your ability to do the job, the company will. My job will be to find people willing to move to another country.
