Did you know?

Spouses and partners who move to another country due to their spouse’s employment often find challenges to gaining meaningful employment. In a survey by Permits Foundation, the overall employment rate of spouses/partners was 89 percent before expatriation, and then fell to 35 percent during expatriation. Most of these spouses (84 percent) want to work. You can read more results from this excellent global spouse/partner employment survey over on the Permits Foundation website. Now, I ask you…what can you do to increase your chances of finding a job if you are a spouse/partner? What does it really take to find a job in another country? If you are a student, what have you heard about strategies that work for finding international employment or internships?
