Looking for work

Jump to section

    It's like traveling, but with better accommodation

    Finding a job across country or abroad may be easier than ever before. There are dozens of websites that list jobs by province, country, industry, specific job titles or skills.

    For international moves, you can check expat community sites for job information and possible leads. Often, these sites include forums where you can post questions and get advice from others who have successfully done what you are trying to do. Crown can direct you to industry resources and valuable links that may be helpful in finding the right job.

    Depending on the kind of work you are looking for, you may find your skills are in high demand in some locations but not nearly as valued in others. You may need to be flexible in your requirements in order to land a job in the city or country of your dreams.

    While you are looking, keep several things in mind. How do salaries and benefits compare?  Are housing costs and schooling comparable to your current location? If you’re moving abroad, do you speak the language of your new country fluently, or will you have to learn it? What special requirements, such as a work permit or employment contract, will you need in order to work there?
