Many people complain about not getting any feedback from companies or organizations abroad when they seek employment. The question is; are you really doing it the right way?

4 TIPS ON GETTING A JOB ABROAD FROM NIGERIA
1. EVERY COUNTRY HAS A CV PATTERN. FOLLOW IT!
Make a research on the CV pattern of the country or region you’re applying to and work with that. Not all countries write their CV’s the same way. Europe, for example, has a different way of writing a CV. Also, state why you should be hired and why you want to leave your country and work in theirs.

2. FOCUS ON REGIONS WITH LOW POPULATION AND LOW SKILLED LABOUR
Be smart! You should know that countries with a very high population will have lesser openings for foreigners. Many Nigerians often apply for jobs in countries like the USA, UK, China and they end up getting rejected. Go for countries with low working populations like Canada, New Zealand, Denmark, Finland Czech Republic and other countries overseas.

3. APPLY ONLINE AND OFFLINE
An online application is good, buy offline will also be better. Applying offline and in person can be more effective than stopping at just online application. Once there is an opening and you have the chance to travel to the country to deliver your application, it gets you the job faster. Also, if you have a good and reliable agent in such a country, you can use them as a link for the physical application. If all of these aren’t possible, use an online application and do it to your very best. Try as much as possible to follow up on your applications online and offline.
