Here are the top 10 countries expatriates in Tech want to go to

We have computed tens of thousands of applications and searches on TechMeAbroad in May to understand where talent in Tech dream to move to. As expected, the US remain the top destination, while France takes an unexpected and solid second place. What is not surprising though, is that China, with its massive startup scene, and its numerous Unicorns attract more and more Tech talent and scores #10. The Netherlands, #8, is also a top destination in Tech, as the country has done a lot to attract Tech talent in the recent months.

Here is the list of the top 10 countries TechMeAbroad users applied to and searched for in May.

What’s also interesting is that other countries, such as Spain, Italy and Sweden are usually top destinations expats want to go to, but when it comes to technology, these countries are not as attractive and they did not make it to the top 10 list.

Improving TechMeAbroad for you (June 2015)

On our quest to be the best way for you to recruit abroad or be recruited from abroad, we constantly update TechMeAbroad based on your feedback. Here’s some of the most meaningful stuff that we added for you lately.

For jobseekers

Read your own job applications

What jobs did you apply to again? Oh, and what was in those cover letters again?

It will all come back to you when you check out your new “My Job Applications” page.

My Job Applications

Write rich cover letters

We’ve found that most successful cover letters are customized for each company; recruiters love it when they can see that you didn’t just copy-paste for them.

So, we’re giving you the opportunity to dress (your cover letters) to impress, by turning them into rich texts rather than plain texts. Make good use of it, and write cover letters that rock!

How old is that listing?

You can now find out right under the job’s title, on the job post’s page!

Help us keep job posts international!

A recruiter is telling you that they don’t recruit from abroad, or don’t recruit at all? Then our posting might be outdated. Let us know through the dedicated link on each job post.

Still, be alerted

We were telling you about them earlier, and we’ve been delighted to find them to be wildly popular with our users. And rightfully so: you can now be notified immediately for every new job post that matches what you’re looking for, and be the first to apply!

You haven’t set any alert yet? Go do it right now, by hitting the “Alert me!” button on searches that are relevant to you.

For recruiters

Move to trash

We were told many times by recruiters that they wanted to archive away some job applications from their “Manage Jobs” dashboard, after they replied to the applicant. So, we added a system very similar to the “Move to Trash” feature you find on computer operating systems.

Basically, you can move the application away to a more discreet pile, and you can always put it back in your main pile later if you change your mind.

Notify specific e-mails for each job

For some companies, the person posting the job online, and the person (or people) reviewing the coming applications are not the same. For instance, you might be an international company and have openings for several countries, and you’d like the team of each country to review their own applicants.

You can now specify emails to notify upon new job applications on each separate job listing.

A special case for the EU

Although no visa sponsoring is needed for citizens of some EU countries (those in the so-called “Schengen area”, plus some others), we had an outcry of both recruiters and jobseekers interested in being connected with each other within those borders. If you post a job post for one of those countries, you will be given an extra option to specify if you are particularly interested in EU citizens.

Whether you are a jobseeker or a recruiter…

The only way for us to keep improving TechMeAbroad, and make it the perfect tool for you to recruit abroad, or find your dream job, is when nice people take the time to give us feedback. Let us know how we could make TechMeAbroad better!

Welcome to Miami, Tommy!

Tommy recently found an internship in Miami, Florida via TechMeAbroad. He agreed to share a bit of his story with us.

I was in high school and not interested by what I was being taught: I wanted to learn IT. So I applied to IT schools but without a degree, they would not accept me. Except for the school 42!  During my first year I have to do an internship and thanks to TechMeAbroad, I found one in Miami!

I got a J-1 visa, and it was actually easy to do : Give some basic information, attend an interview at the U.S. embassy and that’s it! I got my visa in 2 weeks, it was super fast!

I have been there for a few days now. Life in Miami is awesome, sun, beach and my boss is sharing all the tips about the best spots in the city. It’s also an interesting city because many people speak Spanish, so I’m learning it!

Welcome to Miami Tommy!

Are you also looking for a job or an internship in the United States? Bon voyage!

TechMeAbroad extends its partnerships in Europe with Epitech

Logo_Epitech

San Francisco, CA – Thursday May 7th. Today, TechMeAbroad and Epitech – the European Institute of Technology – announce a partnership to help Epitech students and alumni find internships and jobs abroad.

“Our students and alumni are actively looking for jobs abroad, and until we spoke with TechMeAbroad, we could not help them as much as we wanted. Thanks to TechMeAbroad, our students and alumni will have access to hundreds of tech job offers from companies sponsoring visas.” said Emmanuel Carli, Epitech Director.

Julien Barbier, the co-founder and CEO of TechMeAbroad, knows this problem very well. Eight years ago, the Epitech alumnus was looking for a job in the US and couldn’t find any company willing to hire him. “Since the time I graduated, my dream was to be part of a Silicon Valley startup. I remember sending dozens of emails to Silicon Valley companies. Out of 200 emails, I received only four answers and none of them were willing to sponsor a visa. Engineers all around the world are facing the same issue. Thanks to TechMeAbroad, we can now help them connect with companies across borders,” Julien said.

Epitech students and alumni will be able to access offers directly from their intranet and Epitech will also have a dedicated page on TechMeAbroad to facilitate the hiring of talents by their alumni. “We have hundreds of alumni all around the world and they are also hiring other Epitech alumni. TechMeAbroad will facilitate the connection between those international Epitech alumni and graduates.” said Emmanuel Carli, Epitech Director.

Earlier this week, another Epitech alumnus was talking about how he found a job in San Francisco within a week thanks to TechMeAbroad. “Through this partnership, we want to serve more graduates and make the process easier for Epitech alumni.” Said Sylvain Kalache, co-founder of TechMeAbroad
