5 Tips for Success in Overseas Work
Know the Destination Country
When you work abroad, you will automatically live with strangers with different backgrounds, especially in a country with a thousand cultures such as the United States.
Learn about these cultures so that you do not experience a culture shock caused by cultural and background changes that are very inverse.
Also do research on cities and buildings that you want to live in.
For example, how far is the distance between your residence to the train station, ease of communication, the nearest supermarket, to the weather and the seasons.
Apart from living quarters and the environment, you also need to do research on the company you are aiming for.
Enriching your insights about the destination company will add value to the interview later, it can also help you assess the company further.
When you apply for work abroad, the destination company will not immediately determine the day of a face-to-face interview.
Normally, the first step you have to go through is an interview via Skype.
An interview via Skype is actually not much different from a face-to-face interview that you have been through (or often) through.
It’s just that, interviews with this video call will seem more complicated because:
The language used is different
Possibly not smooth because the connection was lost
More in-depth questions about self-experience
The interview time can take place at night due to time differences
From the points above, it is very appropriate if you learn the language that the company uses is fluent so that all questions are answered correctly.
You can also use your insight about the destination company here.
Show your confidence, foreign companies tend to be more interested in individuals who are attractive, talented, and want to continue learning compared to smart individuals who cannot develop.
Check the Legality of Intermediaries
If you use the services of a labor supplier overseas, make sure the institution is official and not abrupt.
This labor channeling service will mediate between you and the company that needs a lot of employees abroad.
You have to be selective, because nowadays there is a lot of fraud with the mode of distribution of workers who rob millions of rupiah from job applicants.
Make sure their validity is proven and experienced.
If you are still in doubt, you can ask friends who are already working abroad about choosing a valid labor distribution service.
Prepare Documents and Work Needs Abroad
As Nigerian worker who wants to go on a career abroad, you cannot go straight away without taking care of the required documents.
These documents will help and facilitate you in the registration process, legal channels, protection, and much more.
The lack of mandatory documents above will endanger you as a job applicant, but also your safety as a foreign nomad.

The last tip for successful work abroad is to maintain our health condition.
To reach your dreams and career dreams, you need 100% commitment, and to fulfill that commitment, you need to be supported by perfect health conditions.
Health is also a major factor that supports our work performance.
With a fit body , you will be ready to face all kinds of processes and tests that are needed seriously without being distorted.
What’s more, you will be in a foreign country, away from relatives and friends who are usually always there for you at all times.
You must be able to be independent in maintaining your own health, not to feel troubled and disrupt the success of your work performance while abroad.
