Have you ever thought about a change of scenery?
Whether you are currently unemployed, seeking a new role or your company has presented an opportunity for you to work abroad – these tips are for you!
1 – Start over, press reset
This is your chance to start over. New location, new surroundings, new friends and new opportunities.
Sure, the 1st
stage of the move can be overwhelming but once you settle into your new place, you will be rewarded with life changing experiences and memories.
2 – Culture
Immerse yourself in the local way of living. Learn traditions and taste the food. Become aware of your surroundings. Learning the local language will be beneficial as a personal skill and it will also look great on your CV!
Mental stimulation is incredibly important for everyone and you will notice that your concentration and energy levels increase after you invest time into new experiences.
3 – More Money
If you speak more than one language, then you can receive around 8-20% more than your monolingual counterpart. Multilingual candidates are a real asset to companies as they can assist with communicating with key clients and consumers, adding value to the company reputation.
Also, depending on the location, the cost of living can be lower in comparison to where you currently reside. It would be beneficial to research salary and tax rates as well as property and travel prices before you make a decision to relocate.
4 – Enhance your CV
Stand out from the crowd. Your experience abroad will showcase your ability to adapt to diverse workplaces and will demonstrate your understanding of business styles abroad.
Also, it’s a great conversational piece for your first interview!
5 – New Connections
When you meet new people you can potentially be introduced to new opportunities.
You might gain a new perspective on different situations by talking to someone new as well as massively improve your language skills! You might make a new friend who introduces you to exciting new pastimes. You might meet someone in your professional network who is looking for someone with your expertise to join their business.
Opportunities are endless. Experiences are priceless.
