You might decide to further your present career or perhaps to explore something new. English teachers, for example, are in perennial demand, and a short course in teaching English as a Foreign Language (TEFL) can start you on that path. Conversely, a plethora of marketing personnel here might mean that your skills are in less demand than they were at home.
Search firms, online sources, classifieds and expat associations can all be helpful when it comes to finding work. The American Association’s Career Resource Center for Expatriates (CRCE) is particularly useful, offering advice on resumes, workshops, and career counselling.
