Looking for a
job can be difficult enough in your own country. How about looking
for a job or career in a foreign country? This can be a real
challenge, but, with the right resources finding a job in Belize
might not be that difficult after all.
The first the
to consider about Belize employment is what industry you will be
working in. Accounting? Real Estate? Personal Finance or Banking?
These are all high demand careers in Belize. Why? More and more
North American companies are choosing to relocate financial assets
to offshore Caribbean and Central American countries. The offshore
accounts of these companies often have favorable tax treatment and
are sometimes not taxed at all. Therefore finding jobs in these
industries in Belize is becoming easier every day as the country
has also been expanding in many other areas such as tourism and
services catering to ex patriots. If you are familiar with North
American or European culture you might be considered a real asset as
an employee in Belize in these industries.
starting your own business in Belize? This is more of a
possibility today than it has been ever before. With rules recently
changes to make it easier to move an incorporated US business into the country the Belizean government is making strides to
tear down the borders of the country and attract foreign investment.
So with all
these options available to you, where do you start? First, try
looking at the US or Canadian consulate offices in Belize. Contact
the appropriate office for your country. The consulates often have
ample amounts of information customized to people in your position.
As well the Belize embassy in your local city may be another good
spot to start to put together a financial plan for your pending move
and employment search. Third, have a look at your local bookstore or
on amazon.com for information on moving to Belize, as many books
have recently been published on the subject due to the new
popularity of this lifestyle choice.
