If I were an Expat (10/10): The 10 points to consider

If I were an expat about to start my assignment, these are the 10 points that I would keep in mind: Manage your own career : Before making the decision of working abroad, think how it improves your capabilities and your long term career perspectives. It is important to keep in mind that you are in the dri ving seat of what is coming ahead in your professional career. Total Compensation: The acceptance of an expatriation depends on the assessment of all benefits, not only the monetary ones such as salary, housing, etc. In recent years, professional, personal and family reasons are gaining importance, as the experience of working abroad is generally a very positive experience for the career of the expats and for their families. Family : If you want the assignment to be successful, the family deserves your full attention, especially during the first months.
