Not very likely, but not impossible either... Depending on what Country you're talking about, it would be cheaper for them in most cases to get someone loy there to do a given job. The only instance I would see them doing such a move would be if that a particular person was an integral member a given team, in which the entire team is expected to relocate overseas. If you are considering going overseas for work in the same Company because your spouse is in the Military, that may be a hard sell to your current employer = it is not impossible, but it is not cost effective or to their advantage to foot the bill for your move...

    I'm just wondering why they would go through the trouble of hiring me rather than someone local since that office services that market. However, I have a lot of the essential skills they're looking for which I was trained at the US location which is where I'm now. Again it's not high level work, just paralegal type work.

    You are right, they wouldn't Paralegals are dime a dozen and they could easily hire someone loy instead of spending money transferring someone from another country.

    Did I misunderstand the original post? Is the question about a simple transfer from San Fran to London? If that is the case, and is not relevant to having them pay for your relocation = a piece of cake. Drastic's initial response addresses the particulars best...

    I think its the best way to get a job overseas! Hi Snooze_button. I'm not sure how you would go about doing this but, I think I heard that you should contact the peeps at the location you're interested in and keep it on the QT at your current location. I would think some peeps would welcome somebody from back-home-USA on their team. You might look into the work requirements for the country you're interested in. Like, getting a work visa, how long you're able to stay within the country's borders if you're not a citizen...stuff like that. There's work-arounds for things. Paying for your relo? Hm. I think you should conduct all of this with the office you're interested in. Something to keep in mind is that some countries pay foreign businesses (in this case, a US business) to hire locals. I'm curious to see how this goes! Please post your success with this! Good luck and, thanks for your post!

    If you have the chance and it's not too complicated, you should definitely go for it, it would be a great, life-altering experience.

    it often depends on who requests it there is no "standard". If you make the request, probably not. If they make the request, probably yes.
