Thanks. :)

And you think that insults will get you help?

1) I am not the original poster (Siampep), and not looking for help at the moment. I have a job. Just been curious after you virtually "slammed the door in the face" of Siampep. :oops:

2) What insult? :o Sorry but can't see how you felt that way :roll:

Have a good week. :)

Obviously you have missed Vaucluse's tongue-in-cheek jibe. Calling him a headhunter could be construed to be an insult due to the general attitude held about recruiters (headhunters in particular) by most westerners (unless one actually found them a job that is. :wink: )

As to what would be needed? At least several years of experience in your field of study in a position not easily filled by a local.

Headhunters over here are held to the same level, specially in my trade. We have weekly sweepstakes on who will get the most calls from headhunters offering you the perfect job :o
