Considering Working Abroad?

Recently, I had my first experience with a client who along with his spouse wants to work aboard, specifically in France. For the client, not only would his working location change, but also his profession. For his spouse, the work location also would be changing, but she would at least be reverting back to a variation of a previous career. I researched options for this couple, and came up with four. Given the world economy and the challenges of finding employment for a non French citizen in France, two of the options we deemed the most viable, and based on these, we discussed next steps including further education and research on their part. Dreams can only come true with thorough preparation and understanding. Opportunities can be realized by planning and consultation with a career development professional. My client was eminently satified and ready to continue to dig deeper on his (their) own.
