  • Engagement in brainstorming, goal-setting, and assessing if any existing professional behavioral issues could hinder your client’s goal
  • Discussion on geographic locations and preferences
  • Guided suggestions and updates for one resume, one cover letter, and your LinkedIn profile
  • Your dedicated/assigned time to work on a cover letter and resume
  • Other tasks, e.g., searching for sample jobs, applying for jobs, using recommended resources, and tracking job applications.

Our group coaching is designed to give aspiring expats a robust shared learning and planning space. The “Thrive Globally in HigherEd” group sessions are offered twice a year.
