Hi my name is Taren and I am so excited to be delivering the "How to be an International Jobseeker" course.  This is a course that is really personal to me and close to my heart.  I grew up in a small town in Washington State, I was the only person in my family to go to University and I am the only one to have travelled and lived abroad.  For me, the opportuntities that I was given as an international jobseeker (as somebody who has been interviewed and worked all over the world) is unbelievable. I have met the most amazing people, I have the best personal and professional network, I have even met the love of my life.  I cannot tell you how important it is to get the skills necessary to take on the world, if that's what you want to do.  

As a professional, I have enabled, inspired and empowered thousands of people to reach their potential and do what they want to do with their lives and their careers and nothing is more important to me than giving people the opportunities they need, to be as successful as possible.  

"Can I handle this"? If the answer is yes, then buckle up because we are going to go through a lot during this course. From VISA permits, to making sure you have the right budget. We are going to look at a lot of things to make sure you have the opportunity to make a very detailed to-do list before you even think about sending off a resume, a CV or an application. 

After undertaking this course you should feel confident:

  • Identifying factors that you need to consider before applying for jobs
  • Researching VISA sponsorship
  • Tailoring your CV and cover letters to an international market
  • Identifying factors you need to consider before undertaking an international job interview both in person and online
  • Knowing what sets you apart from the crowd as an international candidate

Although a lot of what I will be covering will mainly cover English speaking countries, a lot of what I say can be applied to non-English speaking countries.

This course is about doing your research and preparing yourself to become an international jobseeker. Let's get started

    There is a great deal of valuable information in this course for someone who is seeking to work overseas. There are a huge number of possible pitfalls to avoid when trying to find a job in a foreign country. This course also broadens out the message of careercake.com to a truly international audience.
