    I'am a experienced yacht designer and have worked on projects ranging from space planning for Paul Allens Octopus to project managment for a yacht development company designing and making moulds for high volume production builders.

    I'm German citizen but have worked for many years abroad.
    Currently I am naval architect for a 40m+ yacht project.

    Due to some very personal changes I am looking for a new job starting mid/ end 2008. I know it's early days, but still.

    One of the countries I am considering is Thailand.
    Other countries, like European countries & the US or South American are considered as well, as long one can work and live there as a woman without harrasment or the like.

    Does anyone know of companies over there, who might be willing to employ me at a reasonable rate in one of the following fields:

    -Yacht design (Naval architecture & 3D CAD with Maxsurf & Rhino 4, space planning with Microstation or ACAD, project managment)
    -Architecture (3D CAD & visualsation with Rhino4 & VRay or Flamingo)
    -Office managment (I speak fluently English, German and French & some Italian)

    Regards & thanks for any thoughts,

    Longliner's right. You would be weclome here, and should have no problem working with those skills. You might consider:

    I believe you would be welcome at any of the above yacht builders. Trinity is actively seeking designers to work in their new yard.

    Maybe he wants to check out why Frosty is where he is? A less complicated laid back lifestyle.

    Thanks a lot, but... the past 'I tried to get a job in the USA and the visa regs were such a lot of paperwork that the company and I finally stopped it.

    It was a smaller company though.

    Hmm, we'll see,

    best regards,
