Well, most people move out of their country to a better one, right? with better conditions, and in most cases, more "advanced".



I was thinking the opposite.. if I move to Jamaica/Bahamas or any other developing country, how do you go about finding jobs? What are things they need the most? How do you make a living in these kind of places?

What skills do you have? Have you traveled to either of the countries to look for work? Research cost of living on the internet and try to see if you can get wages for whatever you are qualified for to see if you are still interested.

Well, it depends on the country. My sister has made a great living of being a teacher in South Korea, Vietnam, Cambodia, and now she's moving to China next month.

I am getting my teaching license so I would love to teach in Asia. But what about a male with factory and a mechanics jobs? You should ask your sister if there's opportunities for males not teaching

Alright. I'll shoot her a message and she'll probably respond some time during the next day.
