It is important that you have a good job. Better if you have a high paying overseas job. These days the quality of life depends a lot on the nature and the payment you receive for the job.

A lot of new job opportunities are beginning to open up all around the world as the recession period is slowly getting over. More and more jobs are becoming available to the right candidates.

Top 10 Countries to Live and Work

  1. Norway
  2. Australia
  3. Iceland
  4. Canada
  5. Ireland
  6. Netherlands
  7. Sweden
  8. France
  9. Switzerland
  10. Japan

While looking for a high paying job in a foreign country it is important that you seek to get all possible information about the country itself apart from the pay and perks of the jobs offered. Factors like living conditions, cost of living, safety and stability, social integration, upward mobility, recreation facilities, working hours, and communications all play a part in you finding happiness and success in that cherished overseas job. You can take the latest report from UNDP on Human Development Index as a guideline. According to the list Norway is the best country in the world to live and work. Personally I would like to find a job there myself.

Although, Australia is in the top 10 countries to live and work in that list, I would recommend Singapore, New Zealand and Dubai ahead of it, considering the current situation there. You can see that even UK and USA do not come in the first 10 even though you can get high paying jobs there and generally have a good life there.

Some of the other countries you may consider while in search of a job abroad are South Africa, India, Malaysia, and Philippines. If you would like to explore the best high paying overseas jobs in various countries you can find some information the links below for a start. I hope its helpful to you.
