10 Tips to Help You Get a Job Abroad from Nigeria in 2021 See Update

The choice to become an expert is not a joking matter. Remember that most countries are more advanced than Nigeria, so you will need to be special to be hired.

However, if you are interested in getting a job abroad from Nigeria, this article will offer you some tips to help you out.

The following are 10 tips to help you get a job abroad from Nigeria:

1. Plan Ahead

First, you have to make sure that you’re very certain about your decision of moving to work in a foreign country. It’s important that you understand the emotional,

psychological, and practical elements of such a move, which includes being away from loved ones and finding yourself in a completely unfamiliar environment.

Remember, this is a decision that should not be made flippantly; it requires careful and intentional consideration.

2. Research the Country

Before you book a ticket to travel, it is important that you do research on where you want to travel to. You should look into things like:

  • a. Cost of living
  • b. Crime rate
  • c. Education system
  • d. Employment rights
  • f. The political system
  • g. Healthcare
  • h. Laws regarding taxes
  • i. Standard of human rights
  • j. Visa requirements

3. Localize your CV

If you are considering moving to the U.S to work, you will need to send your resume instead of your CV but the terms are interchangeable depending on the country.

You also need to take spelling and grammar rules into account when writing your CV. And if you’re fluent, you might want to consider translating your CV into the language of the country where you’re applying.

4. Find a Job Before You Go

This is very important. You really don’t want to show up without having jobs lined up, that is when you will realize that looking for a job can be a long and tedious process anywhere in the world.

There are many places to look for suitable job opportunities online, including major job boards like Indeed and Monster.

It’s also worth looking into whether there’s a demand for your profession in the country you want to work. Most government sites contain lists of skilled professionals in demand which you can consult, for example, Australia and Canada.

5. Connections

If you have family, friends, colleagues, business clients, or mere acquaintances based in the country you want to move and work in, be sure to let them know.

Even if they can’t help you directly, they may know someone who knows someone who knows someone who may be able to help you find a job.

6. Perfect Your Skype Skills

Most employers will not expect you to fly all the way from your destination for an interview, which means you will likely be interviewed via Skype. So it is necessary to learn how to ace a Skype interview.

Make sure your technologies are working in order, get dressed for the part, and use a neutral background.

7. Get Professional Help

There are hundreds of companies out there who will help you find jobs abroad through various programs and can prove useful if you’re not entirely sure where to start.

BUNAC, for example, helps recent graduates access work permits for 6 to 12 months in Australia, Canada Ireland, New Zealand, Spain, and the UK.

8. Learn the Language

Learning the local language will make a great and valuable addition to your CV, while it can also be most helpful when you have no experience to speak of. After all, multilingual workers are always in high demand.

9. Reap the Benefits

People fail to look into the benefits they are eligible to claim while living and working abroad from the country of origin, which can prove exceptionally helpful, especially during the first few months of your stay. For example, in the UK, ex-pats are eligible to claim:

  • a. Jobseeker’s Allowance (JSA)
  • b. Maternity and childcare benefits
  • c. Illness and injury benefit
  • d. Benefits for careers and people with disabilities
  • e. Winter Fuel Payments
  • f. Bereavement benefits

10. Try to Get a Foreign Transfer

If you work for a company that has an international presence (and really want to keep your job), you could ask about being transferred to another country’s office.

Some companies offer two to three years of rational assignments and they usually take care of everything from visa to transportation cost, accommodation, and internet connection.e
