to Launch Your Career Overseas in an Emerging Market
- I’ve conducted extensive internship and job searches on three continents
and I must humbly admit that I’ve received this rejection email in four
different languages. I did everything right. I did everything I was told
to do. I went on the job forums and posted my CV. I applied to all the
right companies with the tailor-made cover letter. I found out the HR representative’s
name and addressed it to her. What else does a guy have to do to get a
job around here? It was time to change my strategy and do something different.
I didn’t care if it wasn’t what I was “supposed” to do, because none of
the “rules” were giving me the result I wanted – a plethora of interview
offers from consultancies in an emerging market. After testing out many
unorthodox strategies, I finally came up with a method that could be replicated
by other people in search of a launch pad for their own emerging market
career. I’ve experienced the entire spectrum of recruitment, human resources,
internships, and full time job offers on many different occasions in many
different countries. The following blueprint is the product of years of
trial and error, repeated failure, and ultimately consistent success. MORE
in Translation: A Beginner’s Guide to TEFL Training in Prague
- For many years, Prague has been a Mecca for TEFL (Teaching English as
a Foreign Language) training but how is the industry evolving and what
should you know before committing to a TEFL course? The financial crisis
has undeniably had an adverse effect on the whole spectrum of language
learning in Europe recently and language schools in the Czech Republic
have also been hit by the recession. The Czech Republic (and Prague in
particular), has in the past picked up the reputation of being a sort of
lush grazing ground for certified and uncertified English teachers and
at one time all the credentials needed for standing in front of a classroom
of paying language students was a passport from an English-speaking country.
Sad to say that the days of enormous demand for teachers are over but Prague
still remains one of the hubs in Europe where Aussies, Brits, Kiwis and
North Americans rub shoulders with local Czechs, while teaching English
and soaking up the local flavor of the city’s well-deserved international
reputation as a city of culture and general jovial frolics. MORE
Off The Couch! In This Economy, It Could Kill You
- In order to make money, you need to get off the couch and learn
a few new tricks. It’s a proven fact that there comes a moment after people
have suffered long enough that they become willing to try something new
and different, just to quiet the noise in their head. In hindsight, many
people report that the changes they were forced to make turned out to be
the best thing that could have ever happened to them. This ‘darkest before
dawn’ theme is common throughout history, and it is during these times
when fortunes are made and new dynasties are begun. It takes energy to
come up with a new money-making idea, but once the idea has legs and takes
form, it becomes exciting and creates all the energy necessary for success.
All entrepreneurs will tell you that new ventures feed upon themselves
and create a life-force of their own. It’s exciting; I call it ‘the ride
up,’ when a new idea takes off and it’s all blue skies with boundless horizons.
It’s even addictive, seductive and often very rewarding. The trick is to
find an idea that works in order for an entrepreneur to be inspired long
enough to dedicate a few hours a day to birth and grow a new business into
a money-making machine. MORE
Overseas in Puerto Rico as a Licensed Artesan By Andrea Jansen
- In 1997, my partner Ken and I were living in Oregon when we had a pivotal
discussion about everyman’s dream: quitting our jobs, buying a boat
and sailing to the Caribbean. A self-taught artist in my spare time,
I dreamt of painting for real on some tropical isle like Gauguin.
I knew virtually nothing about boating, but the idea sounded so appealing
(and romantic), that four months later we were proudly sitting on our 33-foot
trawler, renamed Ruff Life. After a grueling 4 month cruise we landed
in Puerto Rico. Weary and shell-shocked, I promptly declared my cruising
days over. Ken jumped right in to the community and opened a kite
shop, while, for therapy, I painted on anything I could find. Weekends
found us wandering around the many craft festivals across the island.
We were amazed by what we saw: carved wooden saints, fabric dolls,
and delicately painted feathers, interspersed with seed jewelry, paper
maché masks and homemade candies. And the relaxed-looking artists
appeared to be having a good time. One day, a friend introduced me to the
local variety of calabash gourd, found throughout the Caribbean and known
in Puerto Rico as the hig?era. I knew nothing about gourd art, or the typical
uses for this hard-shelled fruit. Other hig?era artists fashioned
traditional items such as masks, maracas, and simple tableware; what could
I do that was different? MORE
to Start a New Life in Australia - I
found a casual job teaching almost as soon as we arrived and worked 3 days
a week. This paid for our initial rent and gave us the time we needed to
re-take a theoretical driving license, sort out a Medicare (medical) card,
my husband to sign up with job agencies and have several job interviews,
me to have check ups at a midwife/doctor birthing center to monitor my
pregnancy and generally get a feel of the suburbs. We rented a house in
a well kept, green, friendly suburb and made friends with our neighbours.
We slowly started to build on our somewhat limited social life. Our son
arrived healthy and well. It was easier with a baby than I had imagined
because there are many activities for new moms and pre-schoolers. Networking
is the name of the game to source information, make job contacts and find
out how Australia works. It is difficult to find information that caters
for new immigrants that explains the systems, work ethics, social ideas
etc and how to make the first step when wanting to fit in. My husband found
a job in IT within 6 months of being here. This is the typical time it
can take. It has taken him 2 years in total to work his way back up, changing
jobs three times, to the position he was at in Switzerland. 18 months after
arriving we bought a house not far from the sea, near to the train line
and now have a life. We’ve been here two years now and haven’t looked back.
The move has been made easier by the helpfulness of Australians. The positive
relaxed attitude they have about themselves, their country and life tends
to rub off after a while. MORE
On Overseas Teaching Jobs
- Articles on teaching jobs overseas - where to find them, written
by those who have found them. There may be courses in college that teach
you to live overseas but it's doubtful; and if there is, it isn't the same
as living there... the majority of these articles are written by a person
much like yourself who is living & working overseas. QUOTE: "After
all this, what does college life look like in a Latin American backwater
like Colima? In terms of enjoying yourselves and nightlife, that sort of
thing boils down to four or five discos in Colima. Even during my more
naive and innocent days as a student discos never deserved to be called
my cup of tea. But that’s a matter of taste. For good measure, we may chuck
in a few good restaurants, nice cafes and cinemas. But as far as nightlife
goes, that’s it more or less for students and everbody else in Colima.
Finally, we may include the Mexican obsession table dancing. I can’t recall
how often students have asked me already to go with them to table dancing.
My response is always the same:”I only go to table dancing if you’re sister
dances on the table”.

QUOTE: "Job Seeking Blues - Finding Work In Taiwan - Finding Work
In Taiwan ~ by Daniel Wallace - I was in the park with a friend one night,
and he explained all his blues. "So, I was teaching in Japan, thinking
about flying home, then I get this email from a school in Taiwan. They
say they'll pay me 60,000 a month, a free scooter, a free apartment, a
free hotel when I arrive and I don't have to sign a contract until I've
seen the school. So, I come to Taiwan, and at the airport, the manager
is standing there and she wants me to sign the contract before she can
drive me to the hotel."

is hampered by AMA quotas. Ward Dean M.D. of The Center for Bio-Gerontology,
Pensacola, FL spoke out on this issue in an
article entitled Solving the Medical Care Crisis in the United States with
a Free Market Approach. In this article he stated,
"Open [up the] enrollments in medical, nursing, and other health-care related
fields like X-ray, laboratory technology, physical therapy, etc., to allow
all qualified applicants to enroll. Acceptance into medical, nursing, and
other schools in the health care field is very competitive. For example,
there are probably 10-20 qualified applicants for every vacancy in medical
school. Most nursing schools have 2-3 year waiting periods (despite an
alleged chronic shortage of nurses). Many highly motivated and talented
people wind up going into other fields. If there are not enough vacancies,
or not enough schools to accommodate the demand, the class sizes should
be increased, or more schools should be built!" We agree with Dr.
Dean - Until his advice is taken, if it is, students have the option of
attending foreign medical schools rather than abandoning their dream.

Volunteer Work - EscapeArtist.com
endeavors to maintain links on this page that benefit those seeking volunteer
work overseas, and indeed there are some great links on this page leading
to great websites that may have exactly the thing you are looking for.
There are many good people out there doing positive things. Doing volunteer
work overseas is among the best ways to make a positive contribution to
the world. It also puts you in touch with the world in a way that is totally
unique. You can learn more in one year of working overseas as a volunteer
than in five years of public education. Volunteering is generally
considered an altruistic activity, intended to promote good or improve
human quality of life, but people also volunteer for their own skill development,
to meet others, to make contacts for possible employment, to have fun,
and a variety of other reasons that could be considered self-serving. Volunteerism
is the act of selflessly giving your life to something you believe free
of pay. Although if a person volunteers they may not earn money, it produces
a feeling of self-worth and volunteers earn respect and Favors instead

To Make Money Overseas As A Writer - ou want
to live overseas. You want to live free. You want to be your own
boss and keep your own hours. The question is how do you make a living.
The first answer that comes to mind is writing. At least that is
the first answer that came to my mind. Writing is a good way to make a
living overseas; travel articles, newspaper stringers, stuff for the folks
back home. It takes practice to write, but it can be learned, just
as one learns to tie their shoes, or stand one leg. It isn't an automatic
process, but what is? Now there is an expat writers course that can
show you the basics... next you'll be living in Paris and sitting
in hip cafes... or maybe you'll be in Budapest writing an ebook.

On $500 A Month - South East Asia - Some people
regard Third World and Developing World countries with fear or even derision.
Granted they don’t have the same lifestyle, things happen more slowly in
some countries, often not at all. Problems that locals shrug off, like
power outages, or water shortages could drive you nuts. Yet if you are
prepared to adapt you’ll find there’s a uniqueness of culture, warm weather
and warm people. Places where $500 a month can afford you a nice retirement
are becoming harder to find. South East Asia allows you to tick the retirement-with-ease
boxes. Granted it is an adventure and you’ll certainly never live like
a king. But then, do you really live like one now!
on $500 a Month – Part 2 ~ Following on from
last month, Ken Bayliss provides information and insight on how you can
comfortably retire on an income of just $500 a month in Cambodia and the
Philippines. Once, nearly a thousand years ago, it was the big player in
South East Asia. Its empire became vast and influential but Cambodia now
seems like any another Third World country. Time has taken these
glories and in the modern period, after a trying internal war, they are
finally coming out of the nightmare. The 10 million Cambodians are a surprisingly
happy lot, considering their recent difficult history.
