Description

Getting Computer Jobs Abroad provides guidelines for DP personnel contemplating on working overseas on contract or as permanent staff, gives information about job opportunities, and covers work opportunities for partners, and other matters that could affect their decisions.
The book begins by giving an overview of the changing world situation and continues by providing a country by country analysis of the main countries in which job opportunities exist for DP staff- or in which computer staff would like to find opportunities. The next six chapters cover information about job opportunities (i.e. whether languages are required, work permits, cost of living, taxation, housing, transport, etc.) in Europe, Scandinavia, the Middle East, Africa, Far East and Australasia, and North America. The pressures on one’s partner, looking after the welfare of the children, and finally making the decision are also considered. The last three chapters tackle working with agencies, dealing with moving and accommodation, and US taxation of overseas earnings. The book concludes by providing sample questionnaire for embassies, embassy addresses, European computing services associations, comparative pay figures, and a list of agencies. The text book will be invaluable to people who plan to work abroad.
