A few things about me:
29 years old, European.
- Half-way through a 4 year MBA-like study at the business school (part-time, classes in the evening)
- M.Sc. in Computer Science (2006)
Currently working as a PM on complex it projects. Been at this firm for 1 year. Prior to that I was a PM and (to begin with) a SW Developer at a consultancy firm(2006-2009) working for major companies like Ericsson. While at the university I work as a part-time programmer from 2003-2006.
I think it could be really interesting to work in a country like China for instance, but I don't know how "hard" it is to get a job. I guess the easiest thing would be if I work at a company that had a department in Asia, but my company is relatively small (90) so thats not an option.
Does any of you know how hard it is? and even if it is possible.
It would be hard as they would be wondering why you are exploring opportunities in Asia and that you would always go back once you have the experience on your resume.. So the better option is to find a job in a company that has Asian operations say Singapore / India/ China/ Malaysia (lots of European firms do have subsidiaries like sap, bosch, damier chrysler research, Societe Generale, Barclays etc etc) where you could land a job and take up things gradually...!

Dear Subramani Shiva,
Thank you for responding to my post. I agree with your views, especially that a company would wonder "how long will he stay here". I know I would, if I was sitting on "the other side of the table" .
