International Faculty/Scholar Spouses and Partners

Every global mobility professional can attest that one of the most common causes of international job refusal and expat turnover is the issue of spouse/partner employment abroad. However, with Passport Career, employers can 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.

 

International Faculty/Scholars

International faculty/scholars can benefit from Passport Career’s comprehensive country/city destination information 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 faculty/scholar’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.

Undergraduate, Graduate, or Post-Grad

In this globalized world, many higher education programs and their accompanying career centers are now encouraging students and scholars to consider their career options abroad as they transition into the working world. Undergrad, grad, and post-grad students can utilize Passport Career to secure internships, jobs, and volunteer opportunities in the U.S. city of their choice, and for the globally minded, in the foreign country of their choice. Our employment opportunity databases and country/city profiles open many doors for all students.

 

HR Professionals

HR professionals are constantly busy with a long list of responsibilities and tasks. However, supporting internationally assigned faculty/staff, spouses/partners, and families 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.

 

General Employees and Faculty

We live in an era of globalized academic and business interactions, resulting in an increasing number of employees that are involved in foreign negotiations and business travel abroad. As a result, employees often find themselves interacting with colleagues and students from other countries and working on country-specific assignments. By using Passport Career, academic institutions can rest assured that all their employees have working knowledge on any foreign country with which your university/college negotiates or from which your international students hail. This includes an awareness of cross-cultural differences and local social/business etiquette, country/city profiles, and professional networking information specific to that country. Many academic institutions find that giving all employees access to this information enhance their work performance and increases the university/college’s global presence.
