For those who are working abroad and is living comfortably (or uncomfortably), how did you get a work visa over there? What route did you take to get there? Did you have prior language experience before setting to said country? Or was it a country you didn't really think about staying in, but ended up staying in anyways? Did your company push you to work in said country? Did you have someone from said country that helped you to keep a footing there (like living arrangements)?
One of my life goals is to live in a completely different country (different language, different cultural framework, etc) for 2-4 years before coming back, and I still plan to sometime after I graduate.
I am willing to accept anything from teaching kids English (though I prefer smaller towns over huge ones) to working odd jobs in another country, though I am not sure how common it is for other countries to accept work visas for work outside of English or a person with a degree. In about a year from now is when I expect to get most of the stuff at home settled before I want to find ways to get abroad.
I want it mostly for the experience but also because if I had my way, I'd be living in another every few years.
