How do I find a job? What is my purpose in (expat) life? How do I find inspiration and satisfaction during my life abroad? What are my drives, beliefs, needs and priorities? How do I deal with loneliness and feeling homesick?
Since first arriving in your host country, things have been more difficult that you expected. As a partner to an expat it is more than likely that you have been faced with lots of every-day challenges. You have survived the ups and downs of settling in and you can be proud that you finally know your way around and your daily life has at last begun to feel normal. It is about now that another important question comes up:
As an accompanying partner of an expat, you are dealing with a lot of changes in many areas of your life. Perhaps you feel like you have lost your professional identity? Up to now your profession was probably a huge part of your purpose of life and consumed much of your time and energy.
Who am I? | What do I want? | What do I have to offer? - You are not alone. With the help of a professional career coach you will find your identity again. It is certainly worth the investment in both time and money.
