Vacancies Work Abroad PMA Accountant Auditor h1>
I got higher education in Britain (I’m a linguist). I teach English and Russian as a foreign language, in a private school and university. In addition, I am a methodologist, I teach local teachers.
I came to China last fall, before that I worked for 7 years in Cyprus. Has found vacancies on the Internet on sites for teachers EFL (English as a foreign language). I was looking for about a quarter of an hour. I sent the resume, then the interview on Skype began. Nothing special was asked, the level of language proficiency and pedagogical experience were important. I think, because of the experience and took, I have been teaching for 15 years. I’m not sure that there was a contest for my place: there are more vacancies than applicants. In the evening I flew in, and the next day at 9 am I already had the first pair.
Why did you choose China? Here most vacancies are and it’s easier to find a job. In addition, in Korea or Japan, for example, only people with an “English-speaking” passport are taken, but in China they do not pay attention.
In translation into rubles I get 70 000, this is the average salary of the teacher. But you can earn up to 100 thousand, it depends on the city.
Tips from Nellie.
If you plan to work as a teacher abroad, make CELTA and TESOL certification, it’s much easier to find work with them. Check on the Internet reviews of teachers about language schools. You must be registered as a foreign expert and a temporary residence permit. Be punctual, the delay here is negative. The Chinese like small gifts, bring something to colleagues for holidays (I always buy fruit and sweets).
Olesya Shaveleva � USA � Social Worker.
I won the green card in 2013 and have been living in the US in Michigan for two years now. The very first job was arranged as soon as I arrived – a month later. I worked in the hotel and cooked breakfast there, and then cleaned the foyer. The team was nice and friendly, so I did not experience any special problems, but I wanted something more interesting and that the schedule was not from 4 am to 12 pm.
I got a job as a salesman in a youth clothing store, I worked there for a year and I was promoted to a visual merchandiser (merchandiser). By the way, I’m still friends with girls from the store, although I was alone there alone. She left too because of the schedule. I started to study, and it became difficult to combine work, education and family, besides, I have a small child. Sometimes I think that there might have been a career, well, well …
I did not have to wait for a new job in America: I found a job in a Russian company that provides services to elderly and disabled people. It can be said that I got into my specialty – in Russia I graduated from Ulyanovsk State University, faculty of transfer specialties (lawyer / social worker), worked as a lawyer from 2008 until departure.
My clients are people 80-98 years old, I have not had it yet. I’m responsible, and therefore I am not assigned the lightest cases (like cleaning), but care. For example, I have one granny walking very badly, the second is paralyzed. I work for them as a nurse, help wash, dress, feed, go for a walk and read to them, put them to bed and so on. As for studying, I’m getting ready to get a master’s degree (an initial degree), my two specialist diplomas here were equated with bachelor (bachelor).
I live positive and enthusiastic. In Russia there was an office and monotonous work, it’s rather difficult physically and morally, but it’s a good salary and moral satisfaction from what is appreciated!
The starting salary in America is anywhere around 9-10 $ per hour, but I started at $ 7.40 per hour.
Councils from Olesya.
Do not be afraid of any work, as it is an experience. You can search for something new always and no one will judge you for it. For two years I changed three works, not taking into account the work-outs: I cleaned the house, and I sat with strangers. The most important thing is to look for opportunities to get a new profession or upgrade an old one, which I am now diligently working on.
Irina Gazarkh � Israel � Accountant.
I came to Israel in 2000 for permanent residence, one with three children. My son was 9 years old, my twin daughters were six. I was confirmed with a diploma from Russia, specializing in “economist-auditor”, but it was a formality. In reality, unfortunately, it is impossible to get a job with him.
In the first year, immediately after the end of the ulpan (courses on Hebrew studies) went to the courses of accountants. My friends lamented that I was wasting my time and money. But, despite this, I quickly found a job. She did not quit her studies, she finished the courses with a rank higher. I got an accountant at the plant and from that time I began to make a career. She changed many places of work, she searched for herself. Now I work as a chief accountant in an investment construction company. With the experience of settling is much easier.
Salary in our sphere depends on where you live. In the province, the average is $ 1500, the maximum is up to two thousand. In the center of 2000 $ is the average payment. With my experience, you can count on up to $ 4,500. Such salaries are an exception, but you can still find it.
Advice from Irina.
The main thing for new immigrants is not to listen to anyone and be sure to go and learn the language and get a profession. If there is a desire and perseverance, then there will be no barriers to achievement of career heights in a new place.
Ekaterina Smirnova � France � Biologist.
I came to France as part of the “family reunification” program for my husband (he is also Russian), who worked there for a long time.
I work as a biologist (biochemist), this is my specialty for university and Ph.D. Was arranged through her husband (we have the same specialty with him). In his institute, they were looking for someone who could start working straight ahead, and the head of the husband’s department knew that I was looking for a place. When the contract with them ended, I was offered a vacancy by another head of the laboratory from the same institute. In general, all through friends.
I have a typical laboratory work: pipettes / test tubes, etc., very tightly tied to the speed of delivery of all reagents and materials. In Russia, it took months, a terrible bureaucracy, in France everything is done faster. Perhaps, more money, but now with the funding of science has become much worse. There are shortcomings and problems here, of course.
Our salaries are not mega-high: 1,800-2,000 euros for post-graduates (those who defended their thesis and worked as researchers after graduate school) and up to about 4,000 euros from managers.
Councils from Catherine.
Almost always they are looking for employees to get acquainted, so acquaintances need to get acquainted. I would advise not to go to graduate school, unless the leadership of the laboratory is your true vocation, because after it there is only one road – to the leaders. You become overqualified and many jobs are unavailable. Overqualified is when you can not be hired because you are too skilled for it. For example, the requirements indicate that a person with a higher education is needed, this may also mean that the candidate’s degree for this vacancy will be superfluous. In Europe, it is often formulated so that people without higher education have a chance to find a job.
Lada Alexandrova � Germany � Co-founder of the company Clutchartproject.
I moved to Germany in 2007 from Cyprus, where I worked for 7 years in a shipping company. In that year, we rotated employees, and it was possible to change the country. I chose Germany and have not regretted ever since. After a year in the branch of my Cypriot company, for the sake of interest I sent a resume to a large German company and I was invited for an interview. Since then I work there, in the department of certification and audit.
When I was pregnant with the second child in 2014, I had the idea to start my own business with my girlfriends – photo artist Lilya Corneli and fashion-stylist Olga Shlemer. We are all interested in fashion, art, we wanted to somehow unite into one. So the idea of our art clutches was born: a leather multifunctional accessory with a personal print of Lily.
At first, like any start-up company, we spent a lot of time and energy studying the market and promoting it. None of us had any experience in marketing, so sometimes we had to reinvent the wheel. In addition, our product was originally designed for a very narrow audience, so we did not expect immediate sales and results. Over the past year and a half, much has changed: we are developing, printed and online publications are interested in our clutches. Our customers are satisfied and in one voice claim that in the life of the clutch is even better than in the photo. This is the best praise you can get!
We with partners are very happy with the development of affairs. Now we are working on a new collection, which will be slightly different from the previous one. Since this year we are planning to introduce a new direction: the provision of a service that will connect art, communication, photography and acquaintance with the city. If everything goes as planned, already this summer this service will be available and preliminary recording will begin.
I’m not one of those people who abandon the old and only then start a new one. I founded my own business on my maternity leave. Last year, I decided to extend it to 3 years, so despite working on my own project, I’m still a member of the company. This gives me a sense of confidence and allows you to do exactly what you want, not what you have to pay bills.
My business changed my attitude to the corporation and money in general, I realized that for me it’s more important to be independent of corporate norms and rules. I very much doubt that after the expiration of the decree I will return to my company.
During this brief period of entrepreneurship, I realized how much pleasure work can bring. I’m not saying that I did not like my job in shipping, it’s just completely different things. I was successful in my business and happy with my career for 15 years. The experience that I acquired during this time is priceless. I am grateful to the fate that I had the opportunity to be part of an international corporation, to travel the world and, for example, to break glasses for good luck about boarding a new tanker in the shipyards of South Korea. Now I have changed, and my business is what I want to do.
