Expert's insight

On how to secure foreign jobs, Dipo Awojide, the founder of BTDT Hub, who is based in the UK, said:

"If you are looking for a job, a new job or a job with sponsorship you need to start by carrying out a self-analysis and reflect on the following questions. What are your career goals? What are your short-term and long-term objectives? What are your key strengths and weaknesses?
"Then, carry out an external analysis. What are the opportunities out there? What industry or industries do you fit into or can your skills-set be tailored to? What companies are currently recruiting? What companies recruit international students?"

He further provided a list of websites on how to search for a job in the UK:
