Sometimes we just need to change our lives. Our routines. Our careers. Our hair colors. Our wardrobes.

Just change.

There are many ways to do that. You can start eating light mayo instead of regular mayo. Start driving stick-shift instead of automatic. Do yoga in the morning instead of devouring bacon, and watching Netflix.

One of the most frightening yet exhilarating ways to jumpstart your life again however, is to take a job abroad.

airport-802008_1920The first step towards entering the world of expat-life is finding the right job that fits your skills, your wants, and your needs. And don’t worry, there are plenty of opportunities out there. You just need to sit down, and hammer out exactly what it is you’re looking for. And perfect that indomitable resume. The trick is: Be Patient.

I’d like to help you out a bit.

Because I’m forever hoping to return to a life beyond the confines of North America, I’ve compiled a list over the last few years of job boards that may offer you the first step towards a new adventure. I should note however, that because of my natural biases towards jobs in the international relations/development realm, these boards may sway a bit in that direction.

Here are the top 10.

  1. Global Jobs
  2. Overseas Jobs
  3. UN Job Finder
  4. ESL Cafe (for those certified to teach English)
  5. Idealist.org
  6. NGO Job Board
  7. Federal Jobs
  8. Naukri Gulf
  9. JobsDB
  10. Careers in Africa

And if you really want to go abroad, think about becoming an astronaut. For real, they’re looking.
