Job Opportunities Abroad: The International Employers Forum

The International Employers Forum ("IEF") is a non-profit organization dedicated to providing current and relevant information and networking opportunities for legal and human resources professionals whose organizations employ workers globally. These leaders and the companies they serve face unique challenges due to the economic, cultural and legal realities of conducting international business. 

The IEF is an important and vibrant forum for professionals to engage in discussion and share ideas, meet others responsible for global employment practices, and learn about new and evolving employment laws and procedures in countries throughout the world.
