You could opt to work abroad through an employment agency if you want to have a sure and ready work waiting for you when you go there. Or you could simply brave going abroad and start applying for job openings. It would help a lot if you already have some friends or family that have already settled in where you may wanna work.

thats right also, at least if you have people in that place to help you, it will be a lot easier to ask help... thanks for sharing.

Im working here in saudi arabia for almost 6 years, and its my first job to work abroad, thanks to God because i was in good hand, working in reputable hospital in Riyadh,when youre planning to work outside your country, go to some agencies that are legal or registered to your govertment-it means they have the license to send people outside the country with placement fee, or no placement fee,or if its direct hiring to the country your applying the employer itself will give you a visa and everything will be prepare.Dont trust to somebody that they are the one arrange everything about your papers and you will pay them.And also there are some website that are seeking jobs through internet like workabroad.com.And if you apply already in some agencies in your country the first thing you do check the agencies in the internet if its legal or maybe they its only manpower pooling only,they are recruiting all the applicants and later if there is employer thats the time they will hire you.And also when you're applying abroad make sure that you're prepared, the money, your CV that youre competent on the job youre applying.
