Traditionally, emigration was a life-long commitment to settle in a land far away for a chance of, or at least hope for, a better life. These days, there are as many reasons as there are individuals. For some, a few years spent abroad improves the chances of advancing their professional growth. It may even be the prerequisite for their future career. Whatever your motive may be, the actual step to pick up your belongings or leave them behind, to survive in a different culture, requires a solid dose of courage and at least as much preparation. You are, after all, leaving your comfort zone.
This book is for European nationals who wish to work abroad, either “within” Europe or elsewhere in the world.
