Can’t Find Your Place in a Foreign Country? Try a Career Personality Quiz: Free Access

Abroad, overseas, foreign, or just out of country is not ambitious enough as an answer for your career. Yes, you want to go abroad and it sounds cool and à la mode, but just willing does not guarantee a good career.

We hope it does, because that would mean you will search your options carefully, before embarking on your journey. So, what is your real calling?

In the 19th century, answering this question might have been a real challenge, but lucky we are, the internet is your fortune, because it has made available for us a career personality quiz, free of cost. Continue reading

Career for My Personality or 4 Books to Find Your Place under the Sun

The following books will help students – whether they are in their first semester, final year or have already graduated and planning to settle down in this foreign country – choose the right career path that aligns perfectly with their personality.

Being a student is like walking in the fog; you just never know what is going to be with you when it clears. But, that is child’s play compared to being a student in a foreign country, where you are simply trying to herd cats.

While all the other things are a part and a parcel of being a student, taking responsibility and getting a job at such a tender age might be a bit cruel.
