What it takes to Manage Dual Careers Abroad : Expat Value 2017 Global Survey
Many couples try to pursue three goals: expatriation, love and career. But the alchemy uniting these three elements is uneasy. What is the impact of international mobility on the couple and how does the expat partner career evolve? What are the obstacles and winning strategies? Our global survey gives key insights on this growing concern for the expatriate community. We conclude with ideas on how to build a tribe to boost your job search abroad.
