Expat Life

Expat life can be really nice and stressful at the same time.

Especially when you are the partner of the working International.

Many Expat Partners have to stop working when they cross borders.

Some like it, but many Expat Partners want to return to their job, at some point.

The fact that your own career is on hold for a while, is frustrating for many Expat Partners. 

You are at the right place if you are living abroad, and you want to live a meaningful life again.

Let me listen to your story so I can help you in the best possible way.

To become a happy Expat Partner, having a career is not always the solution.

Some Expat Partners just want to take care of their families, that is fine too!

After all, you have to feel satisfied and happy with your choices in life.

If you feel you need to change something:

Expat Partner Career coach Heidi will help you with your:

  • Job search

  • Networking in the Netherlands

  • LinkedIn profile

  • CV

  • Cultural challenges

  • Starting your own business, big or small

  • Educational Advice

  • Your next step in your career

Sukanya Krishnan on LinkedIn:

I interacted with Expat Partner career coach Heidi, to plan about my career in the Netherlands.

Until I met Heidi, I was almost convinced that homemaker takes the most out of me and I can never go back to work which I used to enjoy more.  Thanks to her guidance, motivation, inspiration, and support.

She really changed my view and within few weeks I became confident that I can go back if I want to, and also whenever I want to. She was very informative and energetic during our calls and ensured that my CV and LinkedIn profile are updated with most recent information. She also ensured that my profile looked professional, suitable and

at the same time attractive for my job hunt in the Netherlands.

The outcome of all her sincere and dedicated efforts is my current job, which I am most happy about!

But for Heidi, I would not have achieved it at all. She is a good mentor and guide for an expat partner, and provides the correct input! I strongly recommend her as the career coach for expat partners.
