Amongst the younger generation, it’s becoming more and more common for people to move to new countries and discover whether the grass is greener on the other side.

Find An Internship
We’ve said it before, we will say it again and again - Internships are THE perfect way to find a job and of course, to discover what working life is like abroad. By moving to a new country and completing an internship, you can learn some desirable skills as well as learning the working culture and style in that particular culture. Internships set you up for success by teaching you the hands-on workplace skills and industry-related skills too.
Go To Job Fairs & Networking Events
By getting out there and visiting job fairs and other networking events, you can hear about opportunities that you may not find easily online. As we have mentioned many times before, networking is one of the best ways to find a job. Just like recruitment agencies, there are some organisations and employment agencies whose main focus is to help candidates find a job abroad. Even if you don’t meet anyone particularly special, you will hopefully leave the networking event with a lot more knowledge and understanding of how to find a job abroad.
Search For Opportunities On Social Media
Over the last few years, it’s becoming more and more common for companies to post their jobs on Social Media on sites like Facebook, Instagram and LinkedIn. Especially if they are looking to hire someone from the younger generation or from abroad, these are the perfect platforms for employers to use. On Facebook, it is easy to find these opportunities in groups such as “English speakers in Barcelona” or even within Facebooks new job feature. On Instagram, you can search for hashtags such as #JoinOurTeam or #WeAreHiring. Remember to make sure you clean up your social media presence first!
Whether you decide to move abroad to advance your language skills or to boost your University degree, moving abroad to study can open the door to lots of opportunities. Some Universities and learning centres have connections with companies and businesses and after completing your studies, your connection with that company may help to find you a job straight away. Studying a language is also a great way to find a job abroad, just like networking, you may come across the perfect opportunity for you just from learning a new language. Studying abroad is also a very sociable activity so you may meet people or companies that know of any opportunities or companies who are hiring.
Make That Move
Last but not least, move to your desired location. This option isn’t feasible for everyone but if you have savings and a plan about where you will move - it’s time to do it! Moving to a new country can sometimes be a great way to find a job abroad. It makes it considerably easier to attend interviews, to find companies that you want to work for and the overall visa and paperwork may be a lot easier too.
