Nowadays more and more people are eager to work in an international environment!

Think about it: how easy is it to have a Skype interview, get a contract, get a plane and settle your life somewhere else?! We can definitely say that in the 21st century our career path is not limited to one country. We are willing to go over the geographical borders and look for better opportunities somewhere else in the world, we look for new exciting experiences, a better CV, broader views and better language skills.
