First-hand ex­pe­ri­ence

Los Angeles Times - - JOBS -

A s you’re prob­a­bly (hope­fully) aware, mov­ing to a new coun­try can be a pretty ma­jor change. If you’re se­ri­ously con­sid­er­ing it, you’ve prob­a­bly al­ready vis­ited the coun­try you’d like to work in. If not, it would be well worth your while to plan a trip. Not only will it give you a taste of the cul­ture you’ll be im­mersed in, but it can also in­crease your chances of land­ing a po­si­tion. “Vis­it­ing your tar­get coun­try and set­ting up some in­for­ma­tional in­ter­views is al­ways a good move,” says Glen Loveland HR Manager, China Cen­tral Tele­vi­sion (CCTV). “In­ter­na­tional em­ploy­ers are more re­luc­tant to hire can­di­dates who have never vis­ited the coun­try where they are try­ing to land a job.”
