Of them, 49% were prepared to relocate to another country or continent to get the job of their choice. About 39% of the respondents were ready to move within the country, the survey, released today, said.

As per the findings, men are more willing to move out than women.

"In an environment where the market for talent is becoming global, there is a growing realisation that many individuals may have to relocate for work," Kelly Services' Managing Director Kamal Karanth said.

Among the Indian jobseekers, 36% preferred Europe as their favourite place for employment, followed by Asia Pacific (20%), North America (19%) and the Middle East (7%).

"Oil & gas and hospitality sector witness maximum global relocation (81% and 73%, respectively)," the survey said.

The observations are based on a survey of about 2,000 people in India.

"... there is a diverse global demand that can present personal rewards and career opportunities for those willing to travel," Karanth said.

On the other hand, there are factors such as family and friends, cost of moving, language barries and cultural differences, that prevent many people from seeking jobs overseas.
