If you are under 28 and can get a "holiday visa" where you just go to a country and work, it is easy to go to most countries. However, I'm older and I've found getting a work visa impossible. Really, its such a nightmare I can't do it myself at the moment. I also feel I can't leave my house or job here because I won't be able to pay my mortgage. However, I have done it in 2008, so I'd recommend other guys to get their life to a stage they can go - but it's not easy.

I would suggest if you have a family member (grandparent/parent) have lived in Italy (for example) you can get a EU passport.
Other options than hopefully being hired while being abroad (not common unless you have a highly requested job occupation)
If you are under 30 There is a Aiesec program which is a student organization which is helps students get long-term (1-1.5yrs) or short term (3 months-6 months)
Thank you for this extensive list, Winston! I'm pretty much decided that I will need an overseas job since passive income is probably not going to work so well for me, so this list is wonderful!

chroniclevitae has academic jobs, including those from abroad.
If you get an account, I think you can filter usa.jobs so that it yields only the websites of the companies hiring for International jobs.
On a lot of boards, you click on a job, which takes you to another board where you have to put in another password, and the job may be expired. I haven't used a job board that does that in years, but in the past, you could follow a wild goose chase of job boards and spend your time filling in password forms to create accounts online.
