Event Details

International work experience makes a great addition to any CV and can be a great way to kickstart, or restart, your career. While working abroad can offer new and exciting opportunities for personal and professional development, there are many practical, administrative and cross-cultural challenges to overcome to ensure success.

In this interactive session, Sara Goldberger and Inger Larsen will share insights from their extensive experience as both candidates and recruiters for international communication roles, with a particular emphasis on the cultural aspects of dealing with recruiters from other countries. This session is not about where or how to find a job abroad, but it should equip you with some valuable knowledge to help you through your first interview with an international recruiter.
