Browsing the Going Global Country and City Career Guides

Clicking on the Going Global Country Guide or USA/Canada City Guide links from the Main Page to view the full list of guides included in that collection. The list of guides is sorted alphabetically by country/city.  Clicking on a country/city name brings you to the main content index for the selected guide.

In the USA City Career Guide collection, click on the American Flag icon to access H1B listings by state. H1B listings by metro area are also included in each City Career Guide.

The Topic Overview for each guide includes the subjects covered in each section.  For example, when you select “Industry and Employment Trends,” you can view the details for that topic.  Once the page is open, scroll down the page to see all the information in the selected category.

Searching the Going Global Country and City Career Guides

From the Going Global Country Guide or USA/Canada City Career Guide pages, you can input search criteria into the Guide Search box. It is important to be as specific as possible! Select the desired country/city for the search. 

After you activate the search, the results are listed, including topic and sub-topic titles.

Within each guide it is easy to find pages containing a specified word or reference by selecting the Quick Search box in the right-hand side of the page, and entering the search criteria into the box.  Again, results are listed showing topic and sub topic titles.

H1B Plus

This system provides extensive and detailed access to U.S. Department of Labor (DOL) H1B visa certification records. Use this tool to simultaneously search listings by job title, occupation, employer, location and/or wage. These records are throughout the year, typically on a quarterly basis. This feature is only available in certain subscriptions.

Global Key Employer Directory

Going Global’s premium subscription includes the Global Key Employer Directory with corporate listings for all the countries covered by the Country Career Guide series, plus Russia, Chile, Indonesia, UAE and Malaysia. The Global Key Employer Directory contains more than 500,000 country-specific company profiles in industries such as manufacturing, transportation, consumer goods, consulting services, finance and technology.  Both "local" and "multinational" employers are included. This database is updated quarterly.

Corporate listings include:

  • Full official name of the company
  • Type of company
  • Description of its activities
  • Number of employees
  • Latest financial figures available (sales, etc.)
  • Names of company officers
  • NAICS (North American Industry Classification System) category
  • Mailing Address
  • Telephone, fax, website, email

Searching the Global Key Employer Directory

Search by using the Profile Search box on the Employer Directory page.  You may search by keywords and topics or by ranges.  For keywords and topics, select company name, address or industry/NAICS, enter the appropriate criteria in the box and select the desired country.

IMPORTANT! Keep in mind that industry does not mean function. For example, the industry “banking” will yield results, while the function “finance” will yield none. 

You can also search by sales or number of employees using the Ranges search function.  Select either the number of employees or latest available sales from the Category box, then select a country and enter the desired numerical ranges.

Worldwide Job and Internship Listings

Going Global’s premium subscription includes more than 16 million international job openings and internship listings, including thousands of openings in cities across the United States.
