Benefits and drawbacks of working abroad

Working abroad can help employees earn a great deal of money and gain more benefits. However, some people think this trend has many negative impacts.

Discuss both views and give your own opinion.

Packing up and moving overseas for work is definitely daunting task and not a decision to be taken lightly. It is claimed by many that being employed overseas is beneficial, others, however, looked at it negatively. Even though this seems to be the present inclination to many, still it has its own bright sides and drawbacks and some of these will be illustrated in this essay.

Working abroad is a challenging experience but fulfilling to some people because of  several benefits associated with being employed in a foreign land. The advantages of moving to other country for work cannot be disputed even for the ordinary employees. One of the bright side is income, relocating abroad can improve your financial situation. It is possible to earn more than from their country of origin as some countries around the world lack talent in certain industries. Another factor is to gain work experience, one of the most common problems young graduates have to deal with is that they lack of opportunities and gaining international experience will show someone’s guts, adaptability and maturity that will makes them interesting to future employers.

Despite everything, people applying for overseas jobs should keep in mind that working abroad can have serious drawbacks, negatively affecting family, health and marriages. Working overseas means leaving your families behind. Heading somewhere in far-a-way lands in exchange of higher salary sometimes looks selfish by leaving your parents completely brokenhearted as they needed help during health emergencies which unfortunately common at their age. This will also apply to children, growing up without one or both on their side children can, or more likely will, be psychologically and emotionally deviant. How much more if their parents parted ways since living apart is potentially significant source of relationship issues that can end up derailing a marriage.

In conclusion, working abroad can be economically beneficial to the family, yet, there are also potential grave repercussions from living separately. In my opinion, seeking employment overseas, particularly long-term does not make a positive impact on a relationship, but not everyone are fortunate enough to be given a chance to live with their family and at the same time financially healthy.
