What should I expect when trying to exit into a more competitive (geographical) market?

My home office is in a developing country (think non-EU/US, G20), I’m looking at Biz Ops/PM roles in tech in Western Europe. How much should I expect to be able to leverage my consulting/McKinsey background in this context?

Do you have work authorization for the market you are trying to exit to? If not, it's a tough situation unless you are very experienced or coming from an MBA.

If it's not UK/NL, do you know the local language? If not, that could be a deal breaker - very little chance to land anything without local language in other markets in EU unless you want to exit to start-ups.

Have you looked into transfering internally to a major EU office? This is what a lot of people do or they do an MBA.

Another option is to exit to your local tech company's affiliate and then transfer internally, but it's rather complicated.
