If your situation doesn’t allow you to stay out of job for too long, you need to ensure your career overseas gets a smooth kick-start. “Before moving, update your CV and online presence including your LinkedIn profile,” suggests Natasha Beard from 1st Contact ( www.1stcontact.com.au), an Australian agency that helps with relocation to the UK. “Hit up friends for vacancies. Research the expected pay and conditions for your skills as you may need to take a pay cut for the same job. Get in touch with recruitment agencies so they can set up appointments and ensure everything has been received,” says Beard.
