Praveen, in the countries mentioned, good knowledge of the language is mandatory to get most jobs. If you want to work for exporting companies, they might look for global experience, but many companies are serving the local market.

Thomas, Is the language only the barrier?

No, Praveen.

But the one that is mandatory. So English speaking countries like UK, Canada, Australia might be preferred choices.

Other barriers that come up are can you get a work permit, visa (depends on country regulations), how can you find a company, local culture, including growing xenophobia in some parts of the world (are you resilient enough to cope with it), local regulations about your profession (a Nurse from India would not be allowed to work as Nurse in Germany) etc.

Canada is a good place to work in too and they have a good immigration programs like Express Entry.
Like you I'm trying to have an international experience as a project manager and I'm thinking of Canada right now.

Don't forget that Canada also has a large French population (almost 25%), mostly residing in the province of Québec. I know the province has express immigration tracks for professionals.

Here in Canada, they insist on so-called "Canadian Experience" and you have to work hard to find the first job. Both hard skills and soft skills matter, but I believe their focus is on soft skills.

Hi Praveen,

It’s a challenge. Like Abolfazl pointed out – “Canadian experience”, every country expects similar prior working experience in the country you are applying. Unless a company finds you have extraordinary skills, or skills which are in demand, only then will the company apply for your visa. In short – look around for opportunities in your own company which can offer you onsite opportunities, gain some experience after which it will be easier. Or join companies which have projects running in different countries.
Unless you are from technology background, wherein hiring happens easily. For every other function, getting a company to sponsor your visa will not only be time consuming, the company has to justify your hiring from another country.
All the best in your quest.
