You feel resentment toward your spouse that they´ve landed the “fancy job.”
Your confidence takes a nosedive with each rejection letter.
You lie awake at night wondering if this assignment was really a good choice for you and your family.
This is (also) expat life. It´s certainly not the sexy part, but it is real.
It doesn´t have to be this way.
In part two of this two-part video series on landing the right job abroad, Anna Sparks and I pull the curtain back on what really goes on in our heads and hearts during the job search and adjustment process, and how to turn things around it gets tough.
Here´s a taste of what you´ll discover in this interview:
- How to recover from a nose-dive in self-confidence during the job search as an expat
- How to turn resentment toward your spouse about their great job into something positive for yourself
- When taking action on what is right in front of you can be a negative strategy

Investing energy in your CV and interviewing skills is an obvious place to start when trying to land a great job abroad. It is the stuff behind the curtain that many overlook. Whether you are the one looking for the expat assignment or are the accompanying partner, it is critical to get really clear on what you want, recognize how you are responding to the challenges thrown your way, and use strategies that better serve you and your loved ones. This is key to not only landing the right job, but making the most of your life abroad.
