The government screw the citizens everyday....This is the evidence.

@ lim Actually when applying to jobs overseas, you have to remember that they actually often do require “local experience” especially in the case of western countries. Many times, unless you were a former graduate from one of their universities and stayed on to look for a job, or have returned to find a job, it is somewhat harder if you do not ever find yourself having lived there with networks of people or with any familiarity with the culture. It differs from place to place and you have to be aware of the differences too. That said, it is not that bad if you are willing to settle for a job even if it is menial in the meantime, to help you pay off some of the settling costs, and then, to work towards getting a longer period of “local experience” under your belt on your CV. Don’t be afraid to ask and to network when there too.
