Canadian Engineer working overseas in asia

Hi All,

Does anyone have experience working overseas as a Canadian EIT or P.Eng?

I have ambitions to apply for work overseas (in Asia), partly looking for unique travel experience and hopefully opportunity to work on the massive tunnelling/infrastructure projects seen in the likes of HK/SG/China. One location I'm considering is Singapore.

A little bit about myself: Geotechnical Engineer EIT with four years experience in consulting environment (Vancouver area). Graduated with bachelors degree in Geological Engineering.

I'm curious about any experience related to the work culture, salary expectations, potential site safety concerns as it relates to working in Asia (or elsewhere, say NZ, AU, US). Transitioning back to Canada, has your experience working overseas been beneficial or applicable to your career development here?
