I strongly recommend to arrange the job position you are interested in before you actually move to desired country.

 

"I strongly recommend to arrange the job position you are interested in before you actually move to desired country. Such 'common sense' statement mind sound unnecessary, but many people make spontaneous decisions to change their lives without much thinking ahead. However, there's a possibility that what seemed to be a solid position somehow goes wrong, it doesn't meet your expectations etc. You might find yourself in a foreign country without regular income. Try to be ready for the 'worst scenario', yet hope for the best!

Friends. If you happen to have reliable friends in a country you're planning to move in, it's a big help. Remember, friends have friends who have friends.... Don't trust 'freedom of opportunity' propaganda, most jobs are already taken by... friends. What in case you don't really know anyone who could help you? Persistence is the key. Don't stop job search when they promise you some position in a week or two... something can go wrong. And the last thing - stay positive! Don't let early disappointments get under your skin, negative feelings are easily detected, and negative people are not really welcome anywhere.

Good luck!"
