Either way, interviewing for an international assignment is often different to an interview for a job in your home country. If you are interviewing for a role at home, your life outside of work may not be impacted by a new role. This will not be the case if you choose to become an expat, where every area of your life will change.
Living in a new country and beginning a new role without the support of friends or family can throw up a host of unexpected expat challenges.
An international assignment also offers a host of opportunity. You may land a dream job abroad, develop better leadership skills and give your long-term career plan a boost.
An international interview for an expat role is an opportunity to ask some important questions of your future employer.
