In this article, I talk about a job site that lists only those tech jobs in which the companies also sponsor visa.
Are you looking for a technical job in a tech company in London or anywhere across the globe? Or is the only obstacle between you and your dream job the tiresome process of acquiring a work visa or a residence permit? Today, I’m gonna talk about a very unique site called Techmeabroad, which is literally going to take you abroad to your dream job! Techmeabroad is a job search engine with a difference. Why? It lists down only tech companies (startup and veteran), who also sponsor work visa/residence permit! Be it a web designing, database management, or software development–any technical job, you will find it here!
Now, first things first! Create a free account through the usual provide-your-basic-information process. Though you do not need to create an account to check out the job offers and everything related to it, you will need to have an account to apply to one.
Assuming that you have created an account, you will need one more thing to do before exploring the job offers. Go to the ‘My Account’ section and add additional information such as links to your LinkedIn, Twitter, and GitHub accounts. This is where you exploit the web space and make your presence felt. Serving as your portfolio, the links to such professional sites will help you get the right job for you! Also, mention the country that you reside in. You can now go back to the homepage and start looking for the job that fits your expertise.
You will see the job titles, company names, and their locations. On the right-hand side, you will see what the companies are sponsoring! According to Techmeabroad, all the companies listed on the website will ‘entirely sponsor your visa.’ So at the time of applying, you do not need to worry about having a current visa status.
You will also find some jobs which do not display any visa related information. Possible reasons are: they do not require visas or they haven’t decided about the visa requirements. If it turned out that you require a visa, they will sponsor it anyway.
Also, it is wise to consult an immigration attorney about your visa eligibility before applying to any job. This way you will have a clear idea of which visas you are eligible for. Techmeabroad also has a trusted panel of experts if you ever need any ‘professional legal advice.’
Since the question of visa is cleared out, you can simply click on the job link to go to the page where you will find all the necessary information about the job and the company. If you are happy with what they are offering and if you are confident about what you will be offering in return, simply click “Apply.”
Depending on the job offer, you will be able to apply directly through Technmeabroad or be taken to the job application page company’s website. This is pretty much what Techmeabroad is all about. The rest depends on you!
Techmeabroad is pretty simple. The thing that matters is the value of what it offers! While I constantly feel the lack of a filter to narrow down your search, say based on experience or expertise area, it gets the job done. What impresses me the most is its unique offering of tech jobs with visa sponsorship! The site looks good and sounds good! If there is any techie who have had any experience with Techmeabroad, or know any similar sites, tell me more about them in the comments section.
