I ave been seeking for a job oversees and I had a lot of interviews. Employers said to me that I had a good impression but I am too young to be in the position. I am actually applying for a small position but I don't know. I am very frustrated because I spent my two months stay seeking for a job in another country where I spent much already. I quit from my previous job which I have a high earning but high expenses also and now I a nowhere but thanks I have still some money for at least two months living even without any source of income. My problem is that should I still go back and search for a job in my country or should I just stay at home work online and do some other things like learning about selling products, build my small franchise, etc.., should there any suggestion there please let me know it. i appreciate every suggestions that comes from you. Thank you very much

Working online will help you earn some extra cash every month, which will help you pay your bills and may be buy some other things. You should keep looking for the overseas job and side by side you can learn skills to earn online. If the possibility for overseas job is very less then after trying and waiting for a month you should start looking for a job in your own country.

I really like to work in my own country but because of the inflation, money in my country is down and if only I have this capital then I should have deposited it in the stock market and put the half for a small business. It's because I believe the market will soon rise after maybe five years or 10 years in maximum. The only thing I am really worried about is time consumes money and I have only two months left. Actually 1 month only because even if I got a job I cannot get paid immediately. i have to wait for the end of the month to be paid. But anyway this is life and I have to face this problem. Thanks anyway for the concerns. I'll try to think about your suggestions tonight and decide.

Maybe you can do both? I mean, while hunting and looking for a job, you also work online and do your own thing there, since it is online it doesn't matter wherever you are, right? That way, you are not entirely giving up on your dream to work abroad and probably lose an opportunity when you quit, and at the same time, do something productive and income generating while waiting for any job offers.

Thank you for the answer. Anyway actually it's not my dream to work in my other countries. I liked much to work in my own country because aside from working I can volunteer helping others, teaching the kids, the homeless. However because of inflation the money is down so i tried to seek employment oversees. Now i'm facing a big problem and it has to be solved as soon as possible.

That's the hard part about trying to move somewhere, we always have to worry about the possibility of finding a job. I'm going to be facing the same predicament sometime in the near future. I'm hoping that with my cooking experience I won't have a tough time getting a job at local food places to where I want to live. I think that if we really want to move somewhere to follow our dreams than we have to put our anxiety on the back burner and at least try and pursue it.

With cooking experience, in my opinion you shouldn't find it difficult to get a job. As I saw, they always require people like you at many locations. Anyway, I wish you good luck. I also moved to another place to find a job and I know that it's hard.

If you still have enough money to rest two more month in that place where you moved to, I would try one more month to find a job. Don't give up so soon, but don't wait neither until all your money has run out and keep the other option of learning for the last month you still will rest with some money. I wish you good luck!
