American Moving to Europe (Dual Citizen)

Jump to last reply

I am an American looking to explore living abroad. Due to my Irish grandparents, I was able to acquire dual citizenship with Ireland. Have the necessary paperwork, and my Irish passport. I am now considering a move to Europe, and was looking for some advice and insights. I have undergraduate and graduate business degrees, and assorted experience. Unfortunately, I only speak English, but am willing to learn the language of the country I relocate to, and would likely do so before moving. What I'm hoping to find out is...

- How difficult would it be to obtain a job, being an American?
- Which countries would you think would be the ideal starting point? We've considered the UK, Nordic countries, Germany and the pricier Austria and Switzerland. I have a friend in Barcelona, so Spain's on the possible list.
- Are there any countries right now that I should steer away from? Safety, political turmoil, unemployment, etc.

Any other input would be greatly appreciated. Oh, as far as my exposure to Europe, I have visited England, Ireland and Italy. I have travelled to other places abroad, so I am comfortable outside of the US, but I've never stayed anywhere longer than 2 months. Thank you for reading this, and I look forward to hearing from others' experiences...
