My fellow reader Aremonus told me in a few comments on this blog, that if I get everything right, I should get the same salary in Asia as I get in Germany. I hope you are right. My graduation comes nearer and in January, but not later than February, I should write job applications. A number of questions spin around in my head. They keep me awake at night. Here they are in no particular order.
- Why do I want to go to Asia? I made my personal reasons clear in countless posts here on the blog. But the question remains. Why did that happen to me? Why am I different from the rest of the population who just wants to stay at home and never move to another village? Life would be so much easier if I just desired to stay in Germany. Genes?
- I hope I can prove that Aremonus’ words are right. I was looking around recently and could find a few people who told me how they got to China or Asia right after their graduation. But none of them got a German salary right of the bat. Not even close (I’m not talking English teachers here, people with real jobs). Will I be able to secure that German salary somewhere in Asia?
- If my first job is in Germany, how long do I have to wait until I can get to Asia?
- And what opportunities will I miss by not being there?
Many questions, few answers….
