The BBC has an excellent report about in-demand jobs for global migrants. They list the jobs that countries are seeking and which countries are seeking them. And what jobs do they list?
- Audiologists and speech therapists
- Chemical engineers
- Civil engineering professionals
- Electrical engineering professionals
- Electronics engineers
- Industrial and production engineers
- IT database and network professionals
- IT developers and programmers
- IT engineers and analysts
- Mechanical engineers
- Mining and petroleum engineers
It's interesting to note that while most of the above require university degrees, the IT professions (and chefs) often don't. If you can teach yourself how to program, manage a database or understand networking, you can not only gain a well-paying job at home, you have a much better chance of getting a job abroad.
I've already written about one strategy to learn how to program for free. Combine that with our five-part how to get a work permit series and you're on your way to a well-paying career in a foreign country.
If you already have IT skills, don't forget that we have jobs in Europe for you. We're also actively working on finding more companies willing to sponsor work permits and relocation. There's been enough interest that we're setting up a company to handle this. We'll have more information in the future.
