Over the last 20 years, many individuals have chosen to pack up their backs and find a new life in another country.
With modern infrastructure at an all time high, this process has never been easier.
However, as more people choose to relocate, the competition for jobs has also increased.
As a result, it can be difficult to find your feet when you’re first getting started.
This is the case in most countries around the world, from the UK, Spain and Japan, to smaller countries such as Thailand in which job opportunities are even more scarce.
To make your life easier, we at The Lifestyle Marketeer have created a small guide about the best ways you can make a living abroad, as well as the best alternative for you to enjoy.
The first option you can choose is teaching and in particular, teaching English.
If you were born in the UK and have basic English qualifications, you will likely be eligible to teach English in another country (though the qualifications required will differ from one country to the next).
Teaching is a great way to make a living, especially in many Asian countries where the role of a teacher is highly respected.
However, one downside to teaching is the long hours. At James Hopkins Coaching, we believe that there is more to life than simply working.
While a teaching job is a great opportunity to make money when living abroad, you may often find yourself working overtime for little to no extra money.
Another opportunity for working when living abroad is an office job.
There are many office jobs available throughout countries around the globe.
These include call centres, tourist companies and local businesses, all of which will have relatively low barriers to entry.
These jobs are great at helping you find your feet in a new country and will help you to create a stable foundation to work upon.
However, in the long run they simply won’t allow you to live the life you want.
As a whole, the rate of pay is relatively low and consequently spoiling yourself will rarely be an option.
The third option you can choose is an education route, and in particular a Masters Degree.
At James Hopkins Coaching we have worked with hundreds of individuals who have used their Masters Degree to network with others and find a higher paying job.
A Masters Degree will open several doors for you, allowing you to enter a whole new market of jobs.
Although this may seem great, we believe there’s a better option: setting up an online business.
At James Hopkins Coaching, we teach our clients to develop an online skill that they can then sell to their own clients.
These include Social Media Marketing/ Management, Email Marketing and much more.
If you’re interested in getting involved in setting up your own online business, simply contact James Hopkins Coaching and we will help you get started!
The sooner you start, the sooner you can enjoy the benefits of an online business!
