    Does anyone know how to find Women's coaching jobs overseas? Have a friend that would like to try something new.
    Thanks

    first hurdle: obtaining a work permit which is not easy if your friend doesn't have an EU passport (or a spouse who does).


    second: soccer and sports in general in europe don't revolve around schools but clubs, with coaching almost exclusively on a volunteer basis; paid positions are very few until you get to the higher levels. germany would certainly have more openings than anywhere else, but also the most locals capable of filling them. spain would be towards the other end of the scale, with few candidates and very few posts.

    it depends on the level your friend has been coaching at: WPS or nationally ranked NCAA experience will get a resumé looked at by pro clubs who will also find a solution for the first hurdle. but for a casual undertaking i think there will be difficulties.
