I'm a 25 year old male ... I graduated about 2 years ago with a bachelor's in International Business and will be beginning my MBA (also with a concentration in international business) in the fall. Most of my experience is in sales, management, and finance.
That means you don't or won't have too much to offer that is particularly attractive on the Polish job market. You will have great difficulty finding any job that pays anything decent. The undergraduate degree is not much in demand, and neither is the MBA without solid long-term proven experience, and you are far from that stage. At best, you might get hired as a management trainee that will bring in $12,000 gross a year or so, $15,000 at the very most. It would be hardly worth your while to accept such a position at this stage in your career.
I was born in Wroclaw. I am fluent in English and Polish and am moderately proficient in Russian and Spanish as well.
If you are a Polish citizen, that helps a lot, but will not likely bring in much in terms of additional income, even with the languages. Maybe a extra 1000 PLN a month in the best of circumstances.
My uncle actually owns a popular hotel in Poland (Hotel Piramida in Tychy).
Talk to your uncle, this is really your only option of finding decent work in Poland.
I currently work for a publicly traded corporation outside of Chicago Il that has a couple locations around the world but unfortunately none in Poland.
Doesn't help much, anyway. You're far to green to qualify for a transfer unless there is a desperate need for a Polish speaker inside Poland. Not very likely. Transfers are usually granted to employees with high-level management or administrative experience, or highly qualified technical specialists.
I see that there's a lot of IT and teaching jobs available in Poland but the pay is rather low.
Yes, wages in Poland are low, and teaching is not a viable option for you as you would be unlikely to break even the first year without abundant help from your family in Poland.
I am single and have no kids but I do like to maintain a certain type of lifestyle.
First part, good. Second part, fuggedabowdit. You will struggle to live a spartan existence.
I would like to make at least the equivalent of $60k-$70k gross annually.
Dream on. You would be lucky to make a quarter of that, and even with the somewhat lower cost of living, it still won't be very satisfying. As a management trainee, you would be lucky to make half that even in the States. Basically, you're only one step or two above the office pencil sharpener.
Does anyone have any experiences expatriating to Poland?
Did it for twelve years myself, but I was extremely highly qualified and experienced and I did it as semi-retirement.
Did you have to take a salary cut or did your earnings remain about the same?
Huge cut, by a factor of ten. I didn't go to Poland with the intention or need of earning good money, though.
Did you find a job through a recruiting agency or directly from the employer?
Directly from the employer.
Did the employer help with temporary housing and helping you move?
Forget about it. You are far too low on the totem pole to qualify.
Sorry, but Poland is definitely not the place to further your career. Even any experience you gain there at your level is unlikely to enhance your CV much. Furthermore, you have no useful qualifications or experience and you have unrealistic expectations that lie too far away from reality to make you a promising candidate for the expat life.
My advice would be to work in the States or elsewhere in the West. The job market is much more open to inexperienced recent grads, the wages are much higher, unemployment is lower, opportunities for advancement are more abundant, and lifetime earnings and savings potential are much, much higher.
