Rec2Rec USA is one of the most frequent searches that Consultants do when considering international opportunities, but why is this?
Generally speaking, and particularly in the colder months, when frustrated or bored Recruiters seek inspiration it tends to be in either sunnier climes – the likes of Los Angeles / California, Dallas etc. – or in the prestigious global hubs, such as New York. But the most common issue is that people don’t know whether to start with Visas or research – which country? Which city? What’s the cost of living? Where are the places to avoid? Which markets are the most lucrative? All of that needs to happen before you even start considering individual companies.
These are things that can be time consuming, and can often put people off from actually going ahead with the move. It’s paramount that, when considering a move as drastic as this, you have a Consultant that you can talk to and rely on for genuine advice, who is used to dealing with these issues.
Before even considering a new opportunity, whether that’s locally, in a new city, or abroad, you have to spend time defining what you want and talking to us about what that looks like. Without that, we can’t give you the advice that you need in order to make the right decision for you and your career.
The key to making a successful career move abroad is understanding which markets represent opportunities that closely match your goals and where your skills and experience are most highly valued. After all, somebody needs to pay for your relocation, right?
So, feel free to email us on firstname.lastname@example.org and tell us what your international career search criteria looks like, and we can connect you with one of our Consultants who can help.
