Comment: This book has already been well loved by someone else and that love shows. It MIGHT have highlighting, underlining, be missing a dust jacket, or SLIGHT water damage, but over-all itâ?TMs still a good book at a great price! (if it is supposed to contain a CD or access code, that may be missing)

Editorial Reviews

From Library Journal

Students, recent graduates, and others attracted by work opportunities in foreign countries will benefit from this new source, whose purpose is "to gather together in one place the broadest collection of effective online and offline resources for finding international jobs." Claiming that using the Internet is more effective for obtaining international jobs than domestic ones, Lauber, the author of several guides on finding jobs in the public and private sectors, discusses in detail the advantages of utilizing the Internet while job hunting. These advantages include searching databases of jobs that fit one's employment and location criteria, placing one's name in r‚sum‚ banks, signing on for e-mail notification, speeding the transmission of resumes, using news groups for networking opportunities, and obtaining current country information. Lauber also warns readers to beware of potential pitfalls and gives advice on how to recognize and avoid scams. Some 1200 online and print resources are organized into worldwide gateways and into eight geographical regions further subdivided alphabetically by country. Each resource is covered by a paragraph describing its services, its strengths, any charges to users, and recommendations on how to use it most effectively. Both a "Resource Index" and a "Topic Index" are useful in narrowing one's search to occupations and countries of most interest. Readers need only beware that most graphics illustrating web-site pages are separated from their related text by several to hundreds of pages and that a few advertisements for recommended print resources appear. This well-balanced reference is strongly recommended for academic and public library career collections. Stanley P. Hodge, Ball State Univ. Lib., Muncie, IN

Format: Paperback
I admit that I purchased this book mostly because it advertised a coupon for a free directory of international employers. When I called the company to order the book, I found out that the directory dates from 1994. Obviously I decided to forgoe paying the $10 to have it shipped to me. Otherwise, I have been diligently trying websites that are listed in the book and many of them no longer exist or have very little useful information for international career listings or other job search aids. This book is to be avoided.

Format: Paperback
If you want to find an International Job, this book gives you the URLs for job sites in Africa, Antarctica, Asia, Australia, New Zealand, Europe and Russia, the Middle East, Latin America Canada and Mexico. This book also has a page at the end for you to order a free directory of International Employers. Each URL listing also has a brief summary of the website.

One of my friends teaches English in Russia and she loves her job. Her parents now teach in China. The possibilities are really endless for anyone who wants to travel the world.

If you have been wondering how you could live in an exotic location or just live in another country for a few years at a time to learn about the world, then this book will be very helpful. If you are looking for volunteer teaching opportunities, this book has many resources.

The resort jobs looked tempting although I still have yet to see a job listing that says: "Stay at our resort free and read books all day long." It could happen.

Like that review from Joyce Lain Kennedy suggests, they don't get any better than this. If you want an international job, this is THE book that will help you find the one you crave. The table of contents and indices will get you to the online and print resources that are targeted to your line of work, whether it be teaching English abroad, working in business, high tech, education, nonprofits, or government work. Instead of just listing online job and resume databases, etc. this book tells you everything you need to know about them, including guiding you to where the good stuff is on each website, so you don't waste time looking for websites that are useless for your job search.
More than pays for itself in saved time -- and it includes a free offer for a ... directory called "American Jobs Abroad."

Compiled and written by Daniel Lauber with the assistance of Kraig Rice, International Job Finder: Where The Jobs Are Worldwide is a straightforward presentation with all the facts and all the dirt on jobs that involving living and working abroad. Of special merit is the advice for avoiding international job scams, adapting to the host nation's culture, and safeguarding against anti-American threats. 1,200 of the most effective online and offline resources for finding international jobs on all seven continents make International Job Finder an essential and invaluable resource and reference for anyone serious about job-hunting abroad.
