Careers Without Borders - Experts Connection Explains How to Launch an International Job Search
Submitted by: Star One Public Relations
Novato, CA (OPENPRESS) August 9, 2012 -- Career opportunities and job growth are global, and even domestic companies are looking to expand overseas. Smart executives are expanding their job search, looking for opportunities across the border where they can prove themselves by building new markets. In the next session of Experts Connection (http://www.experts-connection.com), global career expert and CEO of The Career Company Patti Wilson will discuss, "Going Global: How to Launch A Cross Border Job Search." The webinar is scheduled for Wednesday, August 22, from 4:00 - 5:30 p.m. ET, (1:00 - 2:30 p.m. PT), and is sponsored by NETSHARE® (http://www.netshare.com).
The days of the corporate ex-patriot assignment are gone as more companies look to expand their reach into emerging markets. They tend to hire talent to work on location, rather than importing executives from the home office, and as a result, recruiters are working globally and professionals are choosing to pursue advanced education and career paths internationally. "I believe that there is a sea change in how and where we will be employed in this decade," explains Wilson. "The scale is global in terms of visibility, opportunities and markets. There are no local jobs, careers or marketplaces anymore."
In this Experts Connection webinar, Patti will explain the ins and outs of conducting a cross border job search. Included in the presentation will be a discussion of how to determine the best location for your career, creating a cross-border online presence, how to prepare for relocation, and building a network of contacts and researching opportunities using country, regional and global channels. Specific discussion points will include:
- Determining your search goals based on your personal career criteria.
- Creating a game plan to find the opportunities that best fit your experience.
- Identifying potential countries, regions, industries, and sectors to pursue.
- Finding information and conducting complete in-depth industry and company research across borders.
- Building a substantial network localized in countries and regions on your target list.
- How to set up banking, immigration and business requirements in advance.
- Preparing for the financial, social, housing, educational and multi-cultural challenges.
- Negotiating beyond salary in terms of taxation and other kinds of compensation, benefits, and perks, and what to look for.
- Handling the interview process and determining the cultural fit of both the company and the country.
- Taking the long view and planning an ongoing international career.
"Today's business is clearly global, and so are career possibilities, so executive job seekers need to understand how to compete on an international level," said Katherine Simmons, CEO of NETSHARE and host of the Experts Connection webinars. "Patti has worked with hundreds of executives developing successful international relocation strategies. This is a must-attend event for any professional thinking about taking their career beyond the borders."
