Moving to a new country can be an exciting prospect; with the lure of benefits packages, lower living costs and potentially higher wages all conspiring to provide a potentially much higher quality of life.

Before taking the plunge it’s essential to do your research. Salaries can be higher in other countries than at home, but there are other factors to take into consideration and there is certainly no fixed rule. Variables such as the country you plan to move to, your chosen sector, your own qualifications and experience, and even – depending on the country – your gender; these are all things which will play a part in how much you can expect to earn.

Tax will be a big part of this and it’s important to do research around this; know the UK rules on tax if and when you return to home soil, as well as those for your destination of choice. (more…)

Hackers who’ve been in the game for years often seek employment in other sectors. Their hacking skills are kept secret because anonymity can mean the difference between freedom and time behind bars, and frankly, just because being anonymous is “the thing to do” among hackers. Development in recent years, however, have led many would be criminal hackers on the path to success as gainful employees in the information security industry. (more…)

While Generation X is known for its entrepreneurial nature, confidence, and self-motivation, Generation Y is more technologically savvy, can multitask with ease, and isn’t afraid to take risks. As a member of Gen-Y, you’ll want to learn how to play up those attributes to employers so that they are perceived as strengths.
