Current economique climate dilemma
Given the current state of the economique climate, personally I would consider a move to Asia way up on the High Risk chart.
Besides the option of travelling I really don't see what advantages there would be working in overcrowded cities where rents/costs are on par or above typical European cities.
I had considered it a few years back but at the end of the day I couldn't find any real advantage. I have already travelled and worked abraod, I still do, so that side of things is not appealing. My current salary allows me sufficient perks so its not a salary thing. I do agree that the culture would be interesting but is that enough ? it is just for a temporary 3 or 4 years stint ? It would take at least 1 year to become comfortable getting about and learning the basics of the language. That would leave maybe a further 2 or 3 years before you start pining for your homeland.
So unless you are young and ambitious, but then you wouldn't have any experience to offer, who exactly would these jobs offers appeal to ? Its an honest question and not a critique.
