provides a list of American-based companies in Austria. Prior to
arrival in Austria, check to see if your company has an office
in Austria and would transfer you there. If not, it might be
beneficial to join a company that will provide a transfer to its
office in Austria.

companies allow employees to work from home. Skills in areas

their skills or pursue another degree. This will increase
opportunities for employment upon return to the United States.

demonstrate your knowledge, skills, and work ethic, meet people
who may know of vacancies, learn about Vienna, and do something

professional organizations whose members are familiar with the
