offhand, I'd say,,,,,,,, No.    Ok, I'll explain...  if you are over sea, u are flying, and the birds that like to fly over sea are Albatross & Gulls.   and as Audobon Society has noted many times, 'those are some lazy-azz birds! most won't even take a job if it's offered to them!'

One of the best ways to get work abroad is to join an international company in your home country. Once you build a good enough reputation and network with the right people, you can start exploring jobs abroad. This works well because:

  1. You can always come back knowing there's a company that values you
  2. You get paid in your native country
  3. Companies are used to sending out employees and will transition smoothly
  4. You adjust more smoothly abroad because your workplace likely speaks at least some of your native language

The other option is to go to international job events where you can meet with foreign companies. This happens in the US a few times a year.

Finally, if time or money isn't too much of an issue, you can just go out there and see what happens. Nothing gets you motivated like fear of going broke in a foreign land - I'm joking?

A:Going to HK would be the best bet I reckon, especially if you were looking for a church wedding. Chinese weddings are pretty grim IMO - you go to a barren govt dept with souless officials and navigate red tape so some guy can give you a red stamp and a marriage book. You get expensive pictures taken of you both posing in places you'd never go to in everyday life that is somehow supposed to represent your wedding, then a while later it's off to a restaurant where a game show host kind of guy makes sure it's as tacky as possible while the guests eat as fast as they can so they can leave as soon as they finish eating and gave you money. Hell, I'd go to Thailand or the Philippines and get married in Paradise.   -- Stiggs
