Best Countries for entry-level aeronautical engineers

Best Countries for entry-level aeronautical engineers

Hello world

I am new here and I am not sure if this is the correct platform for the following questions, apologies if it is not.
I have recently graduated from the Wits University, South Africa(SA) and I am looking to see if there are any companies willing to hire aeronautical engineering graduates outside SA within the aerospace/aviation industry? I am currently learning python, machine learning GANs, looking to apply for Masters, and diving deep into flight dynamics and aerodynamics to improve my skillset. Am I on the right path here?

Many Thanks

RE: Best Countries for entry-level aeronautical engineers

I'm not in aero, but, basically, no. Why would a company recruit someone with no track record from overseas, when the chances are very high that there are plenty of underemployed aerospace grads in their own country, with no security clearance issues, no need to get a visa, etc etc? The usual thing to do in your case would be to do a 2 year masters in your destination country and hope that you can make enough contacts to get a job. Australia would be a very bad choice for this, but that process costs about $70k.

Masters is pretty much the only viable option at this point, I agree. Thank you for the solid feedback. The world ought to shrink some more๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚

Thank you @CrewIndustrial, I truly appreciate it!
Hopefully, something will come up soon.

Many thanks
