he first advantage is that as a job seeker, you can find out about the vacancies of companies throughout the world. Even if there aren't any openings for you in your own city or state, you will be able to explore options in other locations. Who knows, you may even get a call from a company in some other country. Going to a different country will give you an opportunity to see new places and also broaden your outlook. It is also likely that you will be able to ask for a better salary when you come back to your country.
