Repatriation & Career – REVERSE CULTURE SHOCK #2
Repatriating your career after years of living overseas is a double-edged sword for the accompanying partner, especially if you’ve also worked while abroad.
Wise words & useful resources from the excellent Repat Jack. She says: "You’ll need to present international achievements in an applicable way for your home location and actively seek employers who value that experience.
Efforts extolled overseas towards establishing and maintaining a career will be the same on your return, if not more, for the accompanying partner.
It requires bucket loads of creativity, energy, tenacity, resilience, optimism, resourcefulness, flexibility and self-assessment. Oh, and endless cups of tea."
