Prepare well

When you go to another country, check how long your residence permit will last. It is important for you to prepare well, so you can make the best possible use of your time. You should preferably get in touch with potential employers and make meeting appointments before you leave home. Bring your CV in the national language as well as translated documents. When you apply for a job in a country that is not your own, you need to study the job seeking norms in that country. This applies to e.g. the design and content of your CV and application, and how interview processes are conducted.   

Cultural differences

Cultural differences become very obvious during a job search, and your first task will be to crack the cultural codes where you want to work. How much should you “brag” about your background, how long should the application letter be, how candid should you be? Although it might be challenging to search for jobs overseas, it is definitely worth the effort!
