Here at International Futures we’re all very excited about our online international careers research tool – GoinGlobal. It’s a premium website which allows you to search for literally millions of jobs, internships and volunteering opportunities, across the globe. Whatever your career goals, and wherever you plan to work, GoinGlobal allows you to find the opportunities that are right for you.
As well as the powerful job search function, GoinGlobal also offers a superb employer directory detailing over 400,000 companies worldwide (yes, 400,000). This is an invaluable source of market intelligence, giving you the lowdown on the top employers in any given sector, across the globe. Want to work for an accountancy firm in Papua New Guinea? Find them on GoinGlobal – along with contact details, number of employees and annual sales. This allows you to determine who is likely to be recruiting, and how to contact them.
Last – but by no means least – the site features dozens of extremely detailed country profiles. These give you the lowdown on individual country’s’ major job sites, graduate recruitment fairs, professional organisations and masses of other useful info. You’ll also find interview etiquette tips for a particular country, visa and tax information, networking groups, CV & cover letter guidelines, advice on relocating, cultural information, and much, much more.
I know I’m gushing about this site, but it really is a bit special; and so easy to use. Here’s the catch – it’s a premium, subscription service. This means’ you can’t just access it freely. Your college may already subscribe (most of the University of London colleges do), so you’ll need to contact your careers service to find out how to get a personal account. Once signed up, you can use it from any computer, anywhere you are, where you’ll find a whole world of careers at your finger tips. Enjoy!
