Who has found a job overseas?

In this case, I am talking about a new job with a new company, not so much through a current employer. The reason I ask is because that is what I'm trying to do in the finance industry, and I want to know how feasible that actually is.

I have a full time job in America, so even though I would love to work in Malaysia or elsewhere around East Asia as a financial analyst, I need to look from here. I was hoping that passing Level II of the CFA exam would make me somewhat importable, but it's still looking like an uphill battle. Has anyone had success from a similar situation?

Finding attractive job postings around Malaysia, Philippines, Singapore, Hong Kong, etc. is not so tough but it's hard to believe that I will get noticed over locals.
