Does anyone have advice for anyone with IT degrees and IT certifications to find work abroad. I tried through AIESEC (student-run organization to work in Europe but the job wasn't what I wanted to do so I had to return home). Currently, I am thinking what else I can do to work in Europe/Asia.
Also since I am non-white, it must be hard for me to find work. I was wondering if it is difficult to go to a city to provide IT service for English speakers in the area? I am just thinking that unless there is freelance work, or proof reading for English documents, I cannot or do not think I can teach English.
I have a degree in Information Systems and IT certs but I need a little advice on what I can do.
Seems like the obvious answer would be working for the U.S. government, either in AID-type work in a consulate, or with USDA, or with State Department.
I would register for the Civil Service exam, and also for the Foreign Service exam. Once you qualify on one or both of those, then you can start a serious job-hunt. You may even be able to get a politician or bureaucrat you know to call and set up an interview for you, once you have passed an exam and are thus eligible.
PS Keep in mind I am decades out of date on those things, but both are worth a quick google if you haven't done so.
