Job Booster Cocoon: Prospects for 2020

The Job Booster Cocoon is an international job search group, developped by Expat Communication. Since 2014, the Job Booster Cocoon Paris has been bringing together teams of 10 to 12 expatriate spouses, French returnees or foreigners arriving in France. Their weekly meetings allow everyone to define and implement their project in a warm and motivating atmosphere. The next session starts on November 22nd

Here is another view of: 

  • The main trends that emerge this year from Job Booster Cocoon Paris, where three programs have followed one another.
  • Four testimonies in four languages.
  • Outlook for our job search groups for 2020.

Major trends for 2018-2019

The adventure continues, with as much involvement on the part of the members, conviction on the part of the client companies and passion on the part of the coaches.

Quantitatively, the results are as follows:

  • A slight increase in the number of participants (three groups launched over the period)
  • More and more men and non-French-speaking people,
  • A job search time that is constantly decreasing, thanks to increasingly efficient processes, of course, but above all, thanks to a structural improvement in the job market for executives.

The profiles remain extremely varied: "fast trackers" with very linear routes, people very far from employment, others with incredible experiences. If the most classical profile remains that of women with a management degree and communication experience, we also welcome artists, researchers, entrepreneurs, and even this year a lyrical singer. The facilitator's art is to coordinate these sometimes divergent objectives until everyone has defined and implemented their project. The magic of the Job Booster Cocoon is also to create solidarity and friendship, to break loneliness and restore trust.


Four testimonies in four languages
We interviewed four participants from four different countries about their experiences. Here are in the videos, put in order of arrival in the program:

Corinne Marquis, French, who has just returned to an Office Manager position after two expatriations in India and Japan. She stayed at the Job Booster Cocoon Paris for nine months. 

Then, Elissa Swift, American, consultant in the field of health economics. Elissa has been in Paris for less than a year and her job search is coming to a successful conclusion.

In addition, Maggaly Reid is Colombian with extensive experience in the United Kingdom. She had been in Paris for 5 years, but her husband's contract has just been extended. She has therefore benefited from the Job Booster Cocoon Paris since May to find a position in architecture and found a job in July. 

Finally, Yu-Hsuan Liu, a Taiwanese from Shanghai, has just joined the program. She is looking for a position as an evaluator in perfume (fine fragrance).


The outlook for 2020
At the beginning of the school year, two programs are planned in Paris. The first will start on September 20. The second of November 22nd. The number of places is limited to 12 per session. Anyone who has followed their spouse to Paris, abroad, or on their return from expatriation, is welcome, provided they can follow the program in French or English.


Next sessions : 20 sept et 22 nov 2019.
