A happy expat simply achieves more…..
Job Search or Career Orientation? That IS the question.
Most people who would like a new job, check out what’s on offer in the ‘job market’. This is looking outwards and around you, and is fine when you know what you’re looking for and what you want.
For expats the key question is “What do I have to offer to employers abroad; not knowing the local language and not knowing so much about the local market?”
When you don’t know, and still have a lot of questions on the subject, then you do well to take a look inside yourself. Career orientation is about the following key questions.
Who am I? What is really important to me, in my career? What do I want to achieve in my career? What kind of mark do I want to make in the world? What would be my dream job? What do I have to offer? What am I good at? My passion, my talents? What would I like to develop, improve upon?
Career/Life Coaching can also help you to answer questions like:
How to get the best out of my current job?
How to achieve a better work/life balance?
What about my purpose in (expat) life?
Am I stuck in a midlife crisis?
Should I stay or should I go?
