To all expatriates living in Indonesia!
A journalist from a major international broadcaster is writing an article and needs answers on this question:
"Do you do a job that everyone thinks is highly paid, but in reality isn't?"
Maybe you're a scientist, techie, junior doctor or architect living abroad, working on amazing projects... but the reward is more the skills and experience you pick up rather than the pay packet.
This journalist is looking for mid-career rather than gap-year or interns.
It's not a negative piece. He is not looking for anyone to moan about their employer. It is more like a reality check, the reality of the job, setting the record straight for people ignorant about the profession, and advice for people considering your line of work. And the skills you are picking up that could lead to highly paid work if you wanted to make that move.
Feel free to send your comments right on this discussion.
