So for the last year or so I’ve been thinking of moving to Australia. Now it’s not quite ‘nomadic’, it’s a permanent move to one location to work for a specific country, but it’s similar to what you guys experience a lot.
I’m now at the point where a recruiter is recommending me to companies for roles, so this thing is all of a sudden very real. I’m 24, never lived abroad (although done some travelling, 3 weeks at a time max), single & looking for a job at a digital agency.
I can get a job in the UK, or get a job in Oz (Melbourne). Nothing in me wants the UK except that it’s known. What will I do if I go to Australia and I hate it? How long will it take to make friends? Do I want to spend a couple of years of my life on the other side of the world to everyone I know and love?
For me it seems like if I’m going to do it now is the time. I’m young (ish), single & have no job stopping me.
I just want to know how others have felt in this situation, the decision they made and how it worked out for them.
Any thoughts greatly appreciated.
