Default Foreign entry level ATP jobs

Hey guys I've been doing a lot of research on foreign jobs and most require type ratings or jet time. I'm a 1600 h&r pilot currently flying 135 charter in twins. I'm trying to move up in the ladder now and was thinking regionals or fly overseas. Are there any entry level airline jobs overseas in the airline industry like we have here at the regionals?
Thanks in advance,
Tony

Very few, most entry level jobs are held for local nationals to build their future. Direct Entry Captains often are foreign, but have lots of experience I do know the Chinese hire US CFIs to instruct in China and that has led to local jobs, mostly corporate.

This question comes up every so often. I tried doing just this about 4 years ago.
I'm taking you mean entry level as in FO at an Asian airline. If that's what you mean then no you really have no chance. I had 4000+ 3000 jet and a couple of types including the A320 and I didn't hear from anyone.
My advice is go to the regionals.
Typhoon Pilot has great advice he might be able to shed some light for you, but that was my experience.

Can you be a little more clear about your objective overseas? If it's a regional, why go fly abroad when so many regionals are begging for pilots there. If you are thinking overseas because you see the websites advertising 250k a year and large aircraft flying to exotic places then you are not going to find it with your current experience. Are there foreign airlines that hire lower time non type rated pilots for right seat jobs, short answer is sometimes. Usually these are nationals as part of cadet programs and include long term bonds and require citizenship. The other opportunities generally entail pay to play schemes, self funded types, little to no pay, bonds, etc. While you might find some piston work say in Africa or parts of South East Asia, the pay wouldn't really justify relocating.
