not hard -- you just have to be realistic in your salary expectations (that is you will be on local rates not expat) and give your CV to an excellent executive search company ... PM for details

How realistic should the expectation be? Is half of native english teacher's salary, plus vehicle would be too much to ask?

I'm planning to go back to homeland or kampung.. I wonder if its still hard to find a respectable job for Indonesian, college graduate, 10 years working experience(6 of them here in the states, not to mention good looking crazy Just wonder, is all..

Here are some of my opinions/pointers:
1. finding a job in Indo is really not difficult for somebody with experience. It just takes a while because of either the HRD system here that is not that organized, or they are dealing with so many applicants from so many background that are not even related to the job requirements they put in the ad.
2. As Chewwy had said, dont expect much in the salary. Not many people are very impressed with the fact that you come from abroad, unless you are in managerial position. Because indo is totally different game than any western countries. As you know networking is the key, and being abroad for sometime might mean you have lost them. So it almost is like starting from zero. But of course it doesnt mean you cannot earn much here. Once they think you are valuable, you will be surprise how any times you will get payrise and how much you will earn. I know some brilliant people who started with on Rp. 8jt and goes up to Rp. 25jt in less than 2 years.
3. I'd start early if you really plan to come over to work here. You can start sending your resumes as early as possible and tell the employer the exact date of your arrival.
