"The world is a big place. There are lots of opportunities out there for the enterprising young (or not so young) adventurer. If you’ve ever considered heading overseas for more than a vacation, and you don’t have a trust fund to live on, you’re going to need to do some research on the available opportunities and how, exactly, one can settle in a foreign country...There are lots of good resources and lots of bad ones. The Transitions Abroad site is one of the former.
