First, let me say that my intention here is to look for career advice, not to passively beg for a handout.
Okay, so I recently had a revelation: I really enjoy sound design and post-production, but I feel I should take advantage of the fact that I'll have no roots upon graduation. Field audio in Somewhere, Not-America immediately crossed my mind. I've been blessed with a great mentor/professor who has taught me most of what I know about field audio, however his knowledge of the industry is mostly local.
So here's my question(s) for you folks: What steps would you recommend I take towards finding foreign work? Do international news organizations (BBC, AP, NPR, RFI etc.) even bother hiring specialists or do they outsource to local news organizations? Is there field work to be had beyond The News? How important is it to speak the language (I know French, but that's just one language)?
If there's a few too many stars in my eyes, pinch me so I wake up. I'm not looking for a vacation though, just the opportunity to work/learn while expanding my cultural perspective (like many Americans the only foreign soil I've touched is Canada).
If you're so inspired, add any other information you feel I should know.
EDIT: Let me add Documentary production to this topic.
P.S. If you have a better way to word this question's title, please share. Haha.
