Thank you for clarifying that, Globetrotter. We simply have an inflated view of our accent here in my state.

I also want to keep this thread near the top, as it could be of help to others. However, it doesn't seem like an English degree gets you very far other than teaching jobs.

However, I am 39 years old, and would like to know what kind of jobs are looked for overseas. I do have plenty of experience in light industrial work. And I have an associates degree in Marketing.

He can socialize with the locals.

Yes, I agree. But to me, it sounded like he expected some guarantee of a social life from the job itself, and my point is that that doesn't always happen.

Some guys come to this forum and then get upset when we tell them that there isn't a 100 percent chance of success when going overseas. They then get angry and have no desire to go because they were only willing to leave for a perfect situation, but the reality is that there is no perfect situation.


Jackal, you obviously haven't been to the Philippines. Here, there pretty much is a 100 percent success rate in that even if you are fat and ugly, you can still get laid and find a girl who wants you, many girls in fact. There are so many scores of desperate women here that it is definitely guaranteed. But of course, that's not saying anything about the quality of women you can get her. That's a different story.

I'm actually not terribly concerned about the quality of women. I just don't want them fat, arrogant, or below average in looks. At least if I can get many to choose from. Besides, you should see my "friends". I'm actually looking more towards a life of fun while still making a living. I just figured that my biggest asset might be my education.

But quality is always good.
