    Have you tried asking the career counselors at your college?

    What kind of job are you looking for?

    Teaching English abroad has become really popular in recent years. Places like South Korea, Japan, the former Soviet Union, China, Mexico, South America, and others have been hiring many people from English-speaking countries to improve the English abilities of students in their country.

    It depends on the country you're looking to work in, the job you're looking to do, and whether you have EU citizenship.

    Unless you are well versed in another language I would start with an online job or internship search in England and after you have snuck into Euro world then you will have more opportunity and flexibility to navigate throughout the EU. Also it would help if you can somehow create or reach a contact there. I will be reaching out to some friends in France and London after receiving my masters so let me know how that goes lol.

    I worked at an international company and then asked for a transfer. That's how I got here. I recommend this method for stability.

    Also, depending on where you are going, take an intensive language class (20 hrs plus per week) before going. In six months you should be able to manage if you study hard.

    It was worth it for me. I love Belgium.
