Finding a construction job abroad – defining your goals

Before you start looking for a job, it is worth determining exactly what type of job and position you are looking for. Consider whether you prefer working on large infrastructure projects, building single-family houses, renovations or specialized construction work. Moreover, specify what position you want to work in. Are you an experienced foreman, construction engineer, or are you looking for a job as a manual worker? If you have specialized skills, such as bricklaying, reinforcement, plastering or installation work, it is worth taking this into account in your preferences.

The next step is to establish financial expectations and working conditions that will satisfy you. Research average salaries in the construction industry in the selected country and determine your minimum financial expectations. Make sure that the salary will be adequate to your skills and experience. Additionally, consider whether you prefer permanent employment, short-term contracts, or seasonal work. Employment stability may affect your life and financial plans.

Determining your goals and preferences before starting your job search abroad allows you to make more effective and conscious decisions, and also increases your chances of finding a job that will be both professionally and financially satisfying.
