Ask Dr. Karen - July 10

Dear Dr. Karen,
 
I understand how to network my way to a job in another country but have a different problem.  I am a highly paid, high-level executive in an American manufacturing firm.  If I go abroad I want the same salary, title and status in a company overseas. How
can I make this happen?  What I do now is operations management which Iíve done in many ways in different companies.

Dear executive:

You have a quandary which many people face in looking at new jobs in or out of their home countries. Your job is to network heavily with
search firms who would understand and appreciate your background and capabilities, in other words your value creation capability.  These firms should be internationally based and focused in your industry and the countries you would consider. You need to have some special knowledge and experience and a long list of accomplishments.  You should also speak the language of the country you want to work in and know about its culture and business needs. Be prepared to spend whatever time it takes to continue your networking. Also, think of what is more important,
the overseas experience or the exact package you now have. I know someone who didnít take a job in China because he didnít get the salary he wanted and didnít get a second chance.

Good luck, Karen
