Research by health benefit provider Aetna International, has discovered that US citizens are becoming more diverse when searching for jobs abroad with Dubai leap-frogging London as the top destination.
Since January 2013, Dubai has been the most sought-after location amongst US citizens searching for ‘jobs in (country)’ as they consider working abroad. This moves Europe’s primary financial centre, London, to second-place after being the top of the wish-list since 2006.
Aetna International looked at Google Trends data for the world’s 40 largest countries and their capitals since 2006. The full findings of the research are available at: http://www.aetnainternational.com/ai/en/news/2015/7-2015-us-expat-global-cities-to-work
The remainder of the top ten most searched capital cities since January 2006 form a mix of old Europe – Rome, Geneva and Amsterdam – plus Cape Town in South Africa, Mexico City, and Ottawa in Canada.
