Are there really any good opportunities for Ukrainian women to work abroad in western Europe? Most women leave their homeland, mainly to have a new life. They are usually seeking an opportunity to experience something new, which is why they often come to Europe. It is not surprising that the number of women who travel to western European countries is on the rise: in fact, it has become a fast-growing destination for them.
If you want to work abroad, you can do so without any problem at all. The rules are pretty much the same as for men. You have to have a legal status in your country, i.e. an EU citizen or a British citizen. There are no special requirements.
Just take note of these two things and you will be fine. The first thing you should do is to register with the Ukrainian consulate. This should be done right away. Once you have registered, you will get a temporary visa, allowing you to enter the country for a specific period of time.
You should pay particular attention to the date you register with the consulate. If you forget, you may be turned down. Ukraine immigration officials do not take excuses. So, make sure you remember this date.
The second thing you need to do is to prepare your CV. You can’t just put your job title and a few sentences about yourself. You have to put details about your education, employment, and so on. Don’t forget to mention your goals. A good way to put it is to talk about how your achievements and success have made you qualified to do this particular job.
Your best chance to get hired is to highlight your skills. If you are a highly qualified person, show how it is you became qualified. What were you able to accomplish in the last 3 years? If you have many achievements, list them all, together with the awards you’ve received.
Show that you are financially stable. It’s impossible to work in a situation where you don’t have enough money. Even if you have a new job, try to get an advanced bank account number (or some other form of verified financial income). Don’t leave any copies with anyone, as this could be taken for granted. You don’t want to be refused a visa because you didn’t keep proper records.
In conclusion, this is a free advice for those who want to work in Ukraine. Try to get more information before you go. It will definitely make your trip easier and more profitable.
There are a lot of opportunities out there for women. There are opportunities to work as a nurse, as a construction worker, as an engineer or as an accountant. Do whatever you like, since the possibilities are endless. Just remember, you will be working with some very unskilled people. They may not speak English very well or they may not have much technical knowledge. But in time they’ll learn, you just have to be patient and help them reach their potential.
Don’t be afraid to be of service. The people here need help, especially when you first arrive. Don’t be afraid to offer your help, no matter how unskilled you are. Don’t think that you have to be the best cook in town, there are so many uneducated people that need your help. You’ll see that there aren’t many men around that are willing to cook for two people!
Be polite in everything you do. You don’t have to be perfect, just be kind. Ukraine ladies are very sensitive about other peoples poor qualities, so you better be kind of dull, otherwise you’ll be sitting next to a cold, uncaring Russian woman for the rest of your life.
Don’t forget to have fun. In Ukraine women are equal and there isn’t any such thing as having it all. There are plenty of beautiful, interesting and funny things to do. There are tons of places to see and plenty of good food to eat. And don’t forget the most important thing – to have lots of fun!
And last but certainly not least, one of the most important things you need to bring with you is patience. This is a country where life and death hang in the balance. So, if you want to be successful here you better be ready to give it your all.
