Hello Eric,

Thanks for your question. Do you know where you want to go, or what industry? This may help you narrow the scope of your search. For generally deciding where to focus your efforts, I would recommend this article from Forbes:

In general, networking seems to be the key to success for most people seeking overseas employment. Feel free to use our Community feature here to reach out to fellow veterans or to advisors to build your own network, and that possible connection that brings you one step closer to your goal!

Best,

Andrea
