1. What are the benefits of working abroad?
There are so many its hard to only pick a few! If you study or specialize in a foreign language, an obvious benefit of working abroad is immersion into your target language. You’ll also be fully experiencing a new culture, which typically proves both challenging and rewarding. Professionally speaking, employers find candidates with extended experience abroad attractive, as it showcases an individual’s understanding of the global economy. Working in a multi-cultural office often means developing advanced intercultural and interpersonal skills. You could test out the experience of working abroad by taking a working holiday - see our article: 10 Paycations: how to make money on holiday - but you’ll never know the benefits unless you take the leap of faith and try to work abroad - go for it!

This was a busy week. The economy is solidly rebounding. We had a great employment report. Another story peeked my interest. As someone who works out a lot who takes a lot of supplement I was flabbergasted by a report that I may simply be taking fillers. This is proof positive we need more regulations, not less.

Entertainers of the 1960's answered the cause for equality with songs. Today's cause is jobs. Where are today's entertainers? While jobless is 5.7%, Black unemployment remains in double digits. Blacks skills contributes to a healthy workforce in America and Blacks are big spenders as a group. Blacks have taught and learned skills and are investing time in doing things that could create prosperity for self and others with financial backing from America's millionaires and billionaires. My call is upon entertainers to willingly pay tribute to America's Black History Month. Blacks spend big chunks of money on entertainment yearly. What better time than February for entertainers to pay tribute to America's Black History Month. Create jobs! Donate to organizations. Invest in projects! Entertainers of today must do more to heal this great land of opportunity. Many others have willingly and unwillingly shed blood, sweat and tears for America. For unto whomsoever much is given, of him much is required: and to whom men have committed much, unto him they will ask the more.
Where your treasure is, so is your heart. This Black History Month, I'm calling on Politicians, Business owners, CEOs, Managers and Entrepreneurs to Pay Tribute to America's Black History Month with a heart for America. Black unemployment is in double digits. The national is at 5.7%. Bring down Black unemployment and bring down the nation's unemployment. Why are Blacks denied the experience of financial stability? When was the last time you had no income, no savings, no job, no self-esteem? Many people have never and will never want. Where we are born in America dictates all too often what things will and will not happen in our lives. Blacks contributes with inventions, accomplishments and being good citizens. Yet when it comes to prosperity, Blacks are last hired, first fired and everything in between, resulting in too high uenmployment and fewer comfortable retirees. Love is an action word. Politicians who love America? Help America! Assure Black and White Americans are hired. Pass jobs bills.
