One day, it might happen like this.
“Honey, we are going to the States!”
You find out that your partner has been offered an incredible offer in a foreign country and this offer is promising his/her future. He/She might be simply excited about this wonderful news.
However, you might not be as enthusiastic as he/she is. You might feel anxious and reluctant to go. It is very common to feel that way because your life will be completely different from now. And those changes might not be beneficial for you. It could be more hurdles and issues than excitement.
>You will need to quit your job.
>You will have to leave your family and friends.
>If you have child(ren), you will need to think about his/her/their school.
The “To-Do” list will be very long.
One of the biggest concerns I hear from my clients who are relocated to foreign countries due to their partners’ job is their career breaks.
It’s not easy to work in a host country due to various reasons such as visas and languages.
What can you do during the break?
How can you go back to work after you return to your home country?
If this relocation becomes a great opportunity for you too, it’d be wonderful, isn’t it?
Would you like to discuss what options you have?
Let’s create your future! Don’t let other things determine your future!!
I have found a very interesting TED Talk which title is "How to get back to work after a career break".
