Growing Numbers of U.S. Jobseekers Look Abroad for Opportunities
The economic recession has resulted in a growing number of U.S. jobseekers, particularly those at the executive level, seeking (and securing) employment abroad, according to USA Today. Although the number of candidates remains relatively small, the trend reverses a longtime pattern of greater numbers of foreign workers seeking jobs in the U.S. than the reverse.
Recruiters cite India, China, Brazil, Dubai and Singapore as the “hottest” markets. Candidates in the fields of engineering, investment banking, computer technology, manufacturing and consulting are in high demand.
