Network with other Expats in Asia to find Job. Many realize too late just how important this is. Try to connect to the local “expat” scene and work from there. There are foreign chambers of commerce in all major cities, expat sports teams, plus expat food and drink venues. LinkedIn is also a goldmine and lets you reach out directly with a targeted search, such as searching by University alumni located where you want to work. We have spoken to dozens and dozens of people – face-to-face and virtually – about working abroad, and am always happy to talk to those considering their options. Many have success networking directly with executives or country managers (easier than you think, even as a young professional when you share an expat bond).
