Consulting overseas | Consulting jobs

Consulting overseas can be a bit tricky. Unless you have a work visa or an employer to sponsor you, you may have a hard time landing work in another country. However, if you already work as a home-based consultant, why not take your work with you?

I haven’t yet gone overseas with my work. But my client list includes firms located 3000 miles away. Working long distance hasn’t been a problem. With email, fax and a phone, it’s rarely necessary for me to meet up with my clients who are in the same town as I am, let alone those further afield. With the advent of VoIP services, such as Skype, long distance calls are also less of a problem.

So, if you want to head overseas, consider taking your business with you.
