Going global: 6 opportunities to take advantage of when working abroad
If you're one of those mobile millennials looking for a job overseas - or if you've already accepted one - there are several opportunities you should take advantage of during your time abroad. Engage: The best way to get the most out of your experience abroad is through immersing yourself in the culture and engaging with the locals. Get to know people, say yes to new experiences, try strange foods and let your friends take you to their families' homes for local holidays. Travel: Living abroad gives you an incredible opportunity to see parts of the world you'd never experience on a two-week vacation. Network: Ask around about other opportunities to gain experience related to your interests in your host country. What you need to succeed abroad. It's easy to move abroad with preconceived ideas about other cultures, but to have the most enriching experience, it's important to be open to new experiences. You're going to be uncomfortable: The reason living abroad is such a good learning experience is because it isn't easy. Think of the change and growth you experience as a way of getting closer to the life and career you want. As a job seeker in your 20s or 30s, there's never been a better time to gain international experience.
