Getting A Job Working Abroad - Articles Surfing
Finding jobs working abroad can sometimes take time and is not entirely without problems. We can give you some help in finding work in Portugal and specifically in the Algarve. The advise we give on the overall subject of finding jobs working abroad is based on our expertise of Portugal, but most things can be used as guide lines for any country inside the European Union.
One of the most basic things anyone should do is to gather as much information on all relevant issues concerning your move to a different country. Don't waste your time finding out things which are not strictly necessary. Make checklist and find the answers to your questions.
Compare the cost of living and be sure you know how much you are likely to get paid in a potential new job and look at the basic cost of living. Pay particular attention to the subject of housing. This is often the major problem and needs to be looked at very carefully.
It will be an advantage if you could already be in the country when you are looking for your opportunity. being at home some 2000 miles away will make things more difficult. Maybe you can combine a already planned holiday with the search for your new job. If you have relatives or friends already living in the country ask them for help in supplying you with newspapers where you can have a look yourself what kind of jobs are advertised and you can gain a pretty clear picture about the prevailing labour market.
But there are a few things everyone should carefully consider and understand. The labor market is more difficult than it probably is in your own country. The wages are lower and the social security system is not as advanced as it may well be in your respective country.
Anybody who is willing to work can find a job working abroad. It may not be easy, job centers do exist but they are very different from the ones in the UK for example. And if you use a job center in the attempt to find work it would help a great deal if you could speak Portuguese.
For foreigners there are other and more direct ways of how you can find work. How quickly you can find jobs working abroad will also be influenced of what you are willing and prepared to do.
