Government Agencies & Embassies
Various government departments can utilize Passport Career for employees and their dependents, including:
Spouses/Partners of Staff Posted Overseas
Every global mobility professional can attest that one of the most common causes of assignment refusal and expat turnover is the issue of spouse/partner employment abroad. However, with Passport Career, government agencies and embassies can easily provide a high quality and low cost online career support system that can be used to assist accompanying spouses/partners who are seeking employment as well as those seeking alternatives to employment.
Staff Posted Overseas
Employees on international assignments can benefit from Passport Career’s comprehensive country/city destination profiles as well as our expertise on cross-cultural differences and local business etiquette – all in one place. Additionally, our extensive lists of professional networking opportunities can increase the assignee’s productivity and effectiveness in the new work environment from day one. Likewise, our comprehensive lists of social and expat networking possibilities lead to faster adjustment and satisfaction with a new home country/city, all of which also leads back to increased productivity and effectiveness in the workplace. Passport Career resources can be made available to the assignee prior to, throughout, and post-assignment.
HR Support Staff in Country and Posted Overseas
HR professionals are constantly busy with a long list of responsibilities and tasks. However, supporting overseas staff and their dependents is made easier for HR professionals with a single source support network: Passport Career. We provide detailed information, training, and support directly to the end user. For example, our Resources section offers data, surveys, presentations, white papers, lists of providers, and other useful mobility related information for quick reference. Passport Career also offers White Globe Services specifically tailored to an individual user.
Alumni/Former Staff Posted Overseas
Alumni returning home after being posted abroad often come back to an environment that has changed while they were away. Passport Career provides an up-to-date online career support tool that includes résumé/cover letter writing skills, interviewing tips, companies lists and job databases, and interactive support and coaching. We provide the highest level of support for alumni seeking employment as well as those seeking alternatives to employment.
We live in an era of globalized business interactions, resulting in an increasing number of government agency and embassy employees that are involved in foreign negotiations and business travel abroad. As a result, employees often find themselves interacting with colleagues from other countries and working on country-specific assignments. By using Passport Career, government agencies and embassies can rest assured that all their employees have up-to-date working knowledge on any foreign country with which your company negotiates at their disposal. This includes an awareness of cross-cultural differences and local business etiquette, country/city profiles, and professional networking information specific to that country. Many government agencies and embassies find that giving all employees access to this information only enhance their work performance.
