Probably not for what I think it’s for.
You’ve seen them- from time to time on the expat social media group you frequent, someone posts a want ad that seems almost too good to be true. A job! And they want to hire an expat! I have been living abroad for several years now, and if there is one thing that makes me sick, it is the almost infinite number of companies that prey off the desperate expats looking to live abroad. These parasites latch onto the countless hopes and dreams of foreigners struggling to survive and are enough to dishearten even the brightest lights.
Let me be abundantly clear- there are ways to live abroad. The struggle is enough to make many just give up and go home with their tail between their legs. But for those expats who are willing to sacrifice and put in hard work, the experience can be extremely rewarding. Problem is most of the expat jobs out there don’t make it easy.
For starters, any company that seriously advertises job openings exclusively on Facebook and leaves out relevant information (salary, hours, the name of the company) should raise some warning flags. If they can’t even afford to properly place a want ad, they probably can’t afford to properly pay you either.
But so it goes, and here I go with what, in my opinion, are the different kinds of jobs the expat abroad will find.
