At present my gross salary is Rs. 35000/- and a promotion is due in 3 yrs. My wife is an Assistant Professor (M.V.Sc.) in Veterinary College in a Govt. University with a gross of Rs. 40000/- I am not satisfied with my present job and the salary I get. I want to upgrade my skills or change the career. Can I get a good job in Singapore or any other country with my present qualifications? Or is there any diploma or degree that I can acquire from abroad (Singapore or any other country) to get a good job abroad in general and with emphasis on Singapore, USA Canada and Germany? Please guide me.

Hi, Very difficult to give you a suggestion keeping in mind your years of Experience. You can try and migrate to countries like New Zealand where Agriculture or Horticulture professionals are highly paid for. If you can do a Diploma in New Zealand which is a Level & program and above, you can also take your wife and kids as dependents and your wife can also take up full time employment there.
In another 3 to 4 years, you can become a PR there and kids will also get the same status. You might have to invest about 7 to 10 lakhs to study a good program in New Zealand. But average salaries could be higher than 50 to 60,000 NZ Dollars ( 20 to 25 lakhs ) minimum for a Professional like you.
You can also think of doing programs in Netherlands where Agriculture professionals are in big need.
