Employers: It all depends on your budget!

I’m an employee and have never worked abroad, can I still apply?
Absolutely! We will assist you with all the needed documentation and procedures. Further, we tell you about the employer, employer’s operations and other relevant employment-related details. We will teach you about the culture, geography, language and laws of the Host Country as well as assist you with post- arrival adaptation and assimilation in the Host Country. With Joblio, there is nothing to worry about – we are there for you every step of the way.
What types of jobs are available?
Most working migrants work in agriculture, construction, engineering, food production, and manual labor. Jobs can range from a few months to a few years. That being said, it is possible to find a job in a broad range of occupations. Just speak with our in-country partners about your work goals, and they can point you in the right direction and provide resources for your search.
How do you find me a job?
Joblio maintains our jobs’ database listing positions throughout your host country including agriculture, construction, engineering, highly skilled occupations, and other positions, allowing you the freedom to work for a few months or years and take time to enjoy your host country. We handle connecting the employees with potential employers across the host country for more direct job connections. When you need extra help, friendly staff are available via the hotline.
Many jobs don’t require previous experience, so don’t worry if you don’t have enough professional experience. If you have applicable experience or specific skills, there are jobs that would help boost your resume (e.g., manual labor workers).
How long will it take me to find a job?
Job search can range anywhere from two weeks to a full year. However, most people secure their job position within four months. Using Joblio’s mobile app will help you increase your chances and save you time browsing the internet and contacting employees through brokers.
What is the difference between Visa and Work Permit?
A permission document to enter and remain in the host country for a provided period of your stay. A visa is issued by an immigration representative.
A job authorization letter issued by your employer/company that allows you to perform designated work in a host country. The duration of a work permit is usually shorter than the immigrant visa, and the employee is required to renew his documents before the expiration.
A retention bonus is additional compensation to your base salary as a reward for your hard work and dedication towards your employer.
You can be eligible to receive a retention bonus every six months, provided that you remain continuously employed with the company. The bonus amount will strictly depend on your performance along with the employer’s arrangements.
A retention bonus is additional compensation to an employee’s base salary and is proven to improve employee morale, motivation, and productivity. Bonuses stimulate employees to reach specific objectives as they reward employees for hard-work and dedication.
According to the SHRM/Globoforce, 47% of HR leaders cited employee turnover and retention as their top challenge. On the other hand, 80% of low-skilled workers tend to keep a job with benefits rather than take one that offered more pay and no benefits (American Institute of CPA).
It is important to consider offering a retention bonus to encourage employees to surpass goals, and remain in the position for a longer period, successfully reducing the employee turnover rate. Low turnover rates save time and money in the long-run by limiting the need to invest in new employees’ relocation, training, contracts, and adjusting work assignments.
Joblio recommends a 10% retention bonus every 6 months on top of the employee salary. For example, the bonus calculation would then be the total cumulative employee wages earned for the trailing six months multiplied by 10%.
