How to Get Foreign Work Permit
The world over employers looks for the same qualities in their applicants regardless of whether the job is in the USA, Poland or Hong Kong. You should be familiar with basic information related to the country in which you are seeking employment.
You will experience the unfamiliar immigration rules and practices. Therefore you should be aware of subtle conventions associated with the work permit applications within different countries.
Most visits to the foreign countries are trouble-free but you should be aware of the global risk of international terrorist attacks, which could be against civilian targets, including places frequented by expatriates and foreign travellers like restaurants, hotels, clubs and shopping areas. You should exercise a high degree of caution due to the deteriorating security situation.
Criminal activity, as well as demonstrations and occasional protests, remain a concern throughout a number of countries. In recent years, many authorities have carried out a number of investigations and operations against drug-related crimes and terrorist networks.
Monitor local news broadcasts and consular messages. Ensure that your travel documents and visas are current, valid and secured in a safe place. Carry a photocopy of your travel documents in lieu of the originals. Maintain a low profile, vary times and routes of travel, and exercise caution while driving. Making local contacts quickly and seeking support from other expatriates will greatly increase your comfort and safety.

Search for international jobs by selecting the keywords like a job, industry or company and location like a city, province, state, zip or postal code.
The job search engine searches for jobs on all of the major job boards, newspaper, niche industry and corporate job sites.
Remember that your CV/resume must be targeted, scannable and generate hits. If you have difficulty with your CV writing or resume writing instead of staring at a blank piece of paper, use CV samples, CV templates, resume samples and resume templates or:

Most recruiters expect to receive a cover letter together with your CV or resume.
So, prepare a cover letter convincing the reader why you are the best candidate for the interview.
If you have difficulty with your cover letter writing use one of these:
In recent years it becomes increasingly popular to join the LinkedIn or Facebook social networking websites for professionals, where you may search for jobs and have your keyword-optimized, rich content profile with current CV/resume. Hiring managers use them more frequently to consult your profile and supplement or check against the CV/resume you send along. If you do not have an account, create one and include your social media link(s) on your CV/resume.
However, you should manage your online presence. Eliminate any photos and statements that could reflect poorly on you. From an employer’s point of view, someone who emphasizes partying on a social networking site is not focused on jobs and those who post complaints about work or colleagues are less desirable candidates. Online CV/resume should not include sensitive information as they could show a lack of respect for confidentiality and discretion.
Be aware - technically, you are not allowed to enter many countries to look for work. Processing of a work permit may take a long time. Therefore, it is highly recommended that you obtain work permit forms from an Embassy or Consulate and process them before leaving your home country.
In addition, temporary jobs like fruit picking and any work “on black” will never qualify you for a work permit. Furthermore, such unofficial employment can quite often lead to exploitative working conditions. If you are caught, you can be hit with hefty fines and/or barred from the country or even deported.

Good luck with your work permit.
