My answer is yes, but I don't think it would help what you are asking. I have worked in dozens of other countries, but that is because I lecture, or demonstrate my area of expertise, which is the same around the world.
When looking for "jobs" to do, there are several things to consider. First, there are pretty much the same jobs all over the planet. Selling flowers in New York or London, is still selling flowers. Stacking boxes in a warehouse in Paris, or L.A. or Istanbul is still stacking boxes!!!! Being a pharmacist, cab driver, scuba instructor or librarian is the same all over the world. HOWEVER, many nations will not issue you a "green card" or work permit, unless you have a specific skill they lack and thus they want your skills set in their country. You cannot just move somewhere and set up shop. The USA is probably the "loosest" nation on earth when it comes to that. The big question is, what skills do you have. If you offer an "expertise" in some area, and can find a sponsor in that nation, then you have a far better chance (for instance, you are a world class pastry chef, perhaps a restaurant, club or bakery in Madrid, Spain, or Nepal, or Timbuktu or Cape Town would want to offer you something!!!! If you just want to "travel" but work, find a company that is a big, multinational and get on with them, then you can perhaps serve time at their facilities overseas!!! There are McDonalds, KFC's and WalMarts all over the planet. These companies might want someone who could do a job AND travel (probably would be at a fairly high corporate level, however).
