A Guide to Philosophy Jobs Abroad

If you’re drawn to philosophy, you’re likely a curious thinker—someone with a strong desire to explore the world and examine the ideas that shape it. As a philosopher and critical thinker, your skills are in high demand in fields ranging from education to business, medicine, and technology. So what better way could there be to add to the richness of your chosen field than to put theory into practice while living and working in cultures other than your own? If you want to expand your horizons while putting your degree to work, finding jobs abroad in philosophy is a great way to do just that!

The Benefits of Philosophy Jobs Abroad

As you consider the kinds of work that might best suit your skills, interests, and new location, you’ll find a host of interesting jobs available! In fact, some of the greatest contemporary game-changers in fields like business, technology, medicine, engineering, and social justice have backgrounds in philosophy because they, like you, saw the advantage in pursuing work that encourages not only the process of looking for answers, but also redefining the questions that shape our lives. 

The jobs you find will present you with opportunities to help others, think deeply, and solve problems in ways that will support the desires you had to study philosophy in the first place. And doing this while living abroad will only enrich those opportunities. You will strengthen your communication skills and sharpen your professional development

Some positions offer you the opportunity to help individuals in their studies, while others also offer the added benefit of contributing to group projects or solving social problems. Some might even offer you the opportunity to help on a broader scale by contributing to global initiatives in business, law, or the economy. Work in philosophy can give you the kind of unique experience and qualifications to distinguish yourself from other applicants—and can open doors to you that those who choose to stay at home won’t have.

GoAbroad’s Inside Scoop for Expats Working Abroad in the Philosophy Field Abroad

Going abroad for philosophy jobs can be one of the most rewarding decisions you make for your professional development—but it’s not without its challenges. You’ll need to make sure you investigate the requirements for residency (make sure to check the Embassy List for help on what to look for and where to go for help!) and you’ll want to make sure that you’re aware of any specialized requirements that your intended location have in place regarding the positions you might pursue. But if you do your homework and prepare yourself well for your travel, you’ll find that the experience of working abroad in the field of philosophy will benefit you intellectually, personally, and professionally—no matter where your career path takes you!

And, as a young professional working in a field that has become increasingly more specialized and more competitive, while also growing to meet new demands, obtaining a philosophy job abroad will give you a competitive edge over your peers who don’t take advantage of the opportunity to contribute to and learn from a culture other than their own. Your work abroad in philosophy could introduce you to other expats who might be able to lead you to new professional opportunities you haven’t even thought of yet.

Whatever your greatest area of interest might be, and wherever your long-term goals might lead you, pursuing philosophy jobs abroad can lead you to some of the best options for following those interests and achieving those goals!
