Working abroad is the act of pursuing professional opportunities in a country other than one’s own. 68 percent of the global labor force is willing to work abroad. Only 14 percent of the global workforce is not available for the international labor market. Still there is an enormous difference between the willingness and actual international movement. International labor markets are getting more global, through international jobs websites, search engines and social media. There are interesting enormous differences between countries. Recent researches by GTMS reveal that people living in Latvia, USA and China are less mobile whilst people living in Portugal, Luxemburg and Nigeria are more willing to work abroad.
