Recruiters Offering Worldwide Job Placements

(The Companies Headhunters or Agencies in this Section are not country specific and can offer jobs in any country )

Executive Recruiters and Fees

Executive recruiters, especially in Europe, the USA, Canada, South America and the Far East are paid for by the employer looking for employees. They will get between a fixed fee and up to 30 percent of the employees first annual salary.

Sometimes, a small fee is being charged, normally not more than $50.00. This can be for several reasons, one is to keep out floods of unwanted and unqualified applicants, the other might be that an intermediary of the employer is asked to perform preliminary selection, so that the unsuitable candidates are not forwarded to an overburdened executive recruiter or human resources professional.

But, as a general rule, executive search agencies will not ask for a fee from employees. If someone, taking the above mentioned exceptions into account, charges you, the employment is, generally speaking, a scam. It usually works for "job offers" in countries that have restrictive VISA applications, such as Canada and the USA. The "recruiter" will ask for resume and VISA details and a small fee (usually about $100). Then, after a few weeks, the recruiter will ask for a larger fee that can be several thousand Dollars for, as he states "for the VISA and other fees". You pay and you will never hear from him again. "Canadian" and "English Hotel Jobs", or common laborer jobs in the USA are the favourites for such scams. So stay clear of these!

In some parts of the world, like in the Middle East, fees charged by Indian, Bangladeshi, Nepalese and Pakistani agencies for their nationals wanting jobs in the Gulf States or also in Europe are very common. There can make up half their first annual salary.

Some Points about attending Interviews Abroad

Also read our general Interview Advice Page

The one question which many candidates looking for jobs outside their home country often ask: If a potential employer is interested, am I expected to appear for an interview in the employers country or wherever the job is located? If so, who pays for that and what do they expect from me? Be sure you make that point, the payment of the expenses, in writing clear with any potential employer or recruiter, before you embark half way around the world. Don't bother with international jobs, where the employer, or his agent, is not willing to pay the expenses of travelling to an interview!

If the job is at a significant level, and the employer is really interested in your services, and they do not have a subsidiary in your own country, they will pay your travel and accommodation costs. Sometimes, they might agree to a video conference type interview, but this is still rare. Moreover, the higher the level of the job within the company's hierarchy, the more likely, they want to have a physical presence for an interview.

We work with many candidates and recruiters worldwide and the feedback we get from the recruiters and candidates is a constant source of new information on interview techniques and interview trends around the world. We have also interviewed hundreds of international candidates in different countries and from all sorts of backgrounds through the years. The comments below are a consensus opinion of the most commonly experienced issues and problems.

There are some basic rules that are valid all over the world.

1. The better your information about the company and the country where the job is located, prior to your interview, the more likely you will have a good and successful interview. Don't try to teach the person interviewing you about their country or offer comparisons with your home country, but if required, ask the relevant questions.
2. Wear appropriate clothing. A proper suite for a man, not necessarily a business suite for a woman, but a nice skirt with a blazer, or something similar, is almost always appropriate. Even if you have attractive legs, do not wear a skirt that is too short, nor for that matter, too long! If you have an interview in Rio, Bangkok or in Lagos, don't come in a woolly suit, suitable for London or Stockholm weather! Take enough clothing with you, that you do not have to worry about washing or dry cleaning when away from home. Have cleaned and polished shoes! We cannot tell you the number of times that we have interviewed people wearing shoes that have not been polished since new! The same applies for handbags for women!
3. Don't be too chatty. While in some countries an interview can be quite relaxed, in most countries it is a rather formal occasion. Be short and to the point in your replies and keep it on a professional level. Keep a balance between offering information and replying to what is asked. The importance you have in your local Church or the Little League does, generally not interest employers.

Don't try to flirt.The interviewer, male or female, might be very friendly. But, you should not construe that as an invitation to flirt. Don't be "touchy". Slapping someone's back or, even touching someone's arm, is simply not acceptable. The only physical touch, is the shaking of hands when you enter, or to say good bye, when you leave!

4. Don't use first names. The family or last name is the appropriate form of address in most countries. In some countries, especially in Europe, us the title of the person. If the interviewer is a Doctor or Professor, call him Dr. or Professor so-and-so. Don't say "Yes Sir" or "No Sir" in your replies, unless the person opposite you is a member of the aristocracy. You are not in the military.

If you are invited to lunch or dinner, see that you know how to eat appropriately. Use the fork and the knife and hold them properly. Don't cut the meat, then put the knife aside, using the fork only, to eat it. That might be acceptable in the U.S.A. But, contrary to common belief here, it is not acceptable elsewhere! If you are offered wine for instance, and you do not drink alcohol, ask for a mineral water (not iced tea or Coca Cola or even a coffee with the meal!).

If you drink wine, don't show off your knowledge of wine! If you have dinner with a female interviewer, or if a female is on the dinner or lunch table, do not sit down before the female sits. If she gets up for any reason, get up from your own chair, stand, and only sit down again, when she has left (for instance to go to the bathroom). Do the same when she comes back! Stand up, let her sit down and then sit down again!

Don't smoke in between the courses of a meal. Not even if the host smokes and offers you a cigarette! If a dinner or Lunch is in a private house, don't smoke at all! If the occasion is in a restaurant, only smoke when the coffee is being served and when it is clear that it is a smoking restaurant (non smoking restaurants are now common in Europe). Don't refuse coffee and ask for coke instead!

5. If the position offered is at a certain level, you might be required to attend 3 or more interviews with different interviewing groups. Be sure that you remember the names of the interviewers, and address them properly. (it is quite ok to write the names down) If you did not understand the names during the introduction, ask for them again. Also, introduce yourself formally to each person, with your first and family name, and properly. ( in academic interviews where you sit on a chair in front of a panel, this might not be possible). But remember, there is nothing worse than a shoddily handled introduction or hand shake. If you are in an office or conference room, don't sit down before your hosts sit!
6. Give clear answers to questions without exaggerating your own importance in your former jobs. Some interviewers can be quite aggressive and might try to trick you into quick and not well thought out replies. Take your time in replying. Don't be "spineless" in your replies. You do not have to be opinionated about specific points, but spinelessness will not get you a job either. If your interview is in another language than your own, take time in your replies so that your formulations are correct. If the interview is in English, don't use words that you have picked out of the Thesaurus. It does not sound educated, just pretentious. Use as natural a language as possible, but, without colloquialisms or slang terms.

Prepare questions before you get to the interview so that you know what to ask for. Some employers will tell you, after the interview, whether they are interested. But most will take some time to reflect and evaluate your performance. So do not phone the moment, you have arrived back home and ask about the outcome.

As a general rule, if the potential employer has paid you the travel and hotel costs, he had a certain interest and is more likely to come back to you quickly. Unfortunately, we know, that many human resources departments these days no longer have the courtesy to respond. But use your judgment when approaching them, asking for a status report.

If you need some professional help, we are ready to give that in a short phone interview (15 to 30 minutes). If you send us by e-mail a short description of the job (including country/city location) you applied for, your resume/CV (we do not want Social Security Numbers or Passport details, but, a short strengths and weakness analysis of yourself would be useful), a salary history and some short notes about why you want this particular job, together with the payment of the fee (click here), we will give you a date and time to phone us for a coaching session.

We wish you good luck. Any feedback you have, will be appreciated! Send us an e-mail.
