Event description

Description

Run your own business or find a job while in Silicon Valley!

Professional expat women have 3 options when entering the competitive job market of the Bay Area:

1) They create their own businesses (service or product providers)

2) They grow their careers if they have transferrable skills and if they have work visas

3) They work in Localization if they are bilingual and have work visas

We have laid out the options for you and we have invited Experts in their fields, expat women who have already made their mark in Silicon Valley for an honest and open conversation.

You will enjoy learning from them and you will network and meet other women who are also keen on progressing their careers, while away from home.

Here are the Experts we have gathered for you:
