I'm a recent Masters graduate and I'm at the beginning of my professional career. I've sent out a few dozen applications and done a few interviews, mostly for programming jobs. I have a Masters in Physics (I guess I can say that Astrophysics was my major) and another one in Geophysics, specifically in Natural Hazards, which I've done in the UK (to acquire international references). I've done some numerical simulation work for minimal pay in my own country, but I would like to extend my knowledge, possibly in space-oriented areas. My problem is I come from a small European country where the financial crisis is still very much present. Virtually no company is hiring at the moment (those that didn't go bankrupt), especially not a company that would be involved with anything I'm interested in. The most logical decision would be to pack up and go abroad which I'm more than willing to do. However, I've noticed that companies in other countries also have a more conservative approach to hiring new people, especially for people with no substantial experience. Another problem is that in Europe I'm experiencing national discrimination (my country is not exactly in high standards and I think this influences companies who want to hire native people instead of some immigrant from Eastern Europe, even though I'm not from Eastern Europe). I'm interested in work in remote sensing, renewable energy, space technology, weather, fluid dynamics simulations; basically I'm willing to consider anything if it's connected to detecting and simulating natural processes. Reinsurance would also be a viable option. My English is good enough to not raise attention in the UK and I do have a life's ambition to learn multiple languages. What I'm looking for is advice (can't ask for more than that, I suppose). I'm an EU citizen so visas are not a problem, at least for most of Europe. I'm flexible enough to work in any possible working environment, as long as the work inspires me.
