Have you ever fantasized about living and working abroad? Curious about what it takes to get international experience under your belt? Are you unsure about HOW to land those assignments and grow your career? Are you afraid of the unknown and turned down opportunities to work abroad? Deciding to accept an assignment and move abroad is an exciting but sometimes frightening experience, especially the first time you decide to do it. In a time of a global technology and mobility, and uncertain economy, many people are looking for ways to boost their careers and visibility within their companies. Because of such a pronounced shift in the way the world does business, international assignments are becoming a necessity for the upwardly mobile professional who is looking to rise within their field. Today my guests will discuss not only their own experiences, but also what to consider when engaging in expat assignments, how to navigate culture shock, how to prepare for the move, expectations in your new role and surroundings, how to make the most of your new experience and translate that into career success and resources for the Expat Woman.
