SYDNEY – There is no embarrassing term for women to work abroad. As long as you become a professional worker, working abroad is the best choice for the future. Moreover, many countries have provided facilities for foreign women workers.
Working abroad for some women can be a solution when stuck with a stagnant career and want to find new challenges. Migrating abroad can enhance your career and provide assurance of happiness and stability.
However, the decision to move abroad and leave friends and family to pursue your career dreams can often be a difficult one. As per the 2018 Expat Insider survey, only a quarter of expatriate women (25%) cited career-related reasons as their main motivation for moving abroad, compared to almost two in five men (38%). In fact, a higher proportion of women (28%) moved abroad for reasons related to their relationship, citing the love or work/education of their partner as their main motivation for moving.
Here are the 10 best countries that provide career advancement opportunities for foreign women workers.
1. Czech Republic
With job security and great career prospects, the Czech Republic has a lot to offer. Female expatriates rank the Czech Republic as the best country to work abroad. This is of course reflected in satisfaction levels among female expatriates: more than four in five (83%) are generally happy with their jobs. What’s more, almost eight in ten (78%) are satisfied with their job security.
Moving to the Czech Republic can also improve career prospects, with more than seven in ten expatriate women (73%) rating them positively, compared to only six in ten men (63%).
Launching InterNation, a woman from Ukraine revealed that she really appreciates the availability of jobs in the job market. However, for women looking to move abroad for better pay, the Czech Republic may not be the best destination. Fewer than two in five expatriate women working in the Czech Republic (38%) earn more than what they earn in the same position at home, compared to 50% of all women working abroad.
