Working abroad is both a great opportunity and a major challenge – on a professional as well as on a personal level.
If you have decided that you would like to work abroad, you can either do so for a short time in the form of a year out or a gap year, or relocate long-term or permanently.
As an engineer, you may specifically be able to engage in projects that just would not happen in your local area and this will both enhance your CV and allow you greater exposure to experiences for your professional development. Also, the pay rewards for engineers can be better in other countries and there may be greater chance of career advancement.
“Working abroad offers the chance to gain experience of other cultures and working styles, which is very important in a global economy where engineers are increasingly mobile and will work on international projects throughout their careers.
