I am a recent graduate from India and currently working in an analytics company as interaction designer.
Few days back I was filling the job application form for interaction designer post in yahoo (Job located in Paris) and I have encounter a section where I have to mention that if I am legally authorized to work in the country where the job is located. I am really confused what to fill in the box.
First of all, I don't have any visa for any country and secondly I don't have any criminal record (as I presumed by the question) so what should I do.
I have heard that after getting the acceptance from the company it provides you an offer letter which can be used as a leverage to get the visa. Is that true or do I need to apply for the visa first?
So I am rephrasing my question again: Question: If the job is open for international applicants then can I apply for the job if currently I don't have any legal right to work in job location? And If I can apply for the job then is it possible to get the legal rights to work in the job location?
