One secret for your success everybody forgets to tell you

Try to look for “how to become successful” in Google. You will find a plenty of DO, DON’T, NEVER, ALWAYS… but you will not find what you really need.

I spent about 2 years attending 3 universities one after another: Economics was my breakfast, PR was my dinner and Languages became my supper. Somewhere in between I managed to take some short jobs to get my pocket money. Did it teach me a lot? Oh, yeah! Most importantly, it showcased all kinds of emotional, physical and intellectual burnouts one can imagine.

Work & study abroad: defining your real goals. Internship? Work? Volunteering?

You got a new great idea: why don’t you go abroad to get some international experience and improve your English? US sounds great, but a friend of yours had an exchange semester in Thailand in 2015, and enjoying some sun while working sounds like a good idea to you. This idea of “doing something abroad” grows in your mind very fast, and one week later you catch yourself looking at immigration laws of different countries – why should you spend only 6 months abroad if you can LIVE abroad?

Take a dep breath and to think very carefully about your goal (see also my article on Motivation). What do you really want? This might give you some ideas:

  • You just want to explore new countries and to look how other people live
  • You want to exchange experience with colleagues from abroad / to improve your qualification
  • You are deeply unsatisfied with your life in your home country / you want to build a new life abroad

As you may imagine, each of these ways will require from you a different level of motivation, investment of your finance and time. It seems obvious that you need to make your mind before starting the preparations, but too many women just jump into it by hearing: “But if you like it there, you get a boyfriend, get married and stay in the country!” Hey, this is something worth considering – but let’s imagine you are a smart girl depending on yourself. So what do you really want?

In this article, I will focus on the first two points, as there are going to be many posts on the smart immigration topic later.

Be my guest

Dear reader,

As the time offers new opportunities and brings in new ideas, I got something new for you, too. I have seen a lot, and I have much to tell – so, be my guest in this blog where I will share my vision of life and career of a modern international woman as well as my opinion regarding the cultural differences and integration problems in different countries.

This blog has been created, first of all, as a help for my Russian friends to explore new opportunities and lifestyles outside of Russia. I will give my best to write as simple as possible, and often you will find a Russian translation below. I hope that you will be able not only to enjoy the reading, but also to improve your English, as learning languages is essential for your future.

See you soon,

Russianladyabroad


Дорогой читатель,

Как время предлагает новые возможности и приносит нам новые идеи, так и я кое-что для тебя приготовила. Мне удалось многое увидеть, и многое осталось несказанным – поэтому приглашаю тебя стать читателем моего блога, в котором я поделюсь своим видением жизни и международной карьеры современной женщины, а также собственным мнением относительно культурных различий и проблем интеграции в разных странах.

Этот блог был создан, прежде всего, для того, чтобы помочь моим друзьям из России открыть для себя новые возможности и варианты устройства жизни за границей. Я буду писать преимущественно на английском, стараясь подбирать максимально простые выражения, но порой буду добавлять и полноценный перевод на русский в конце поста. Очень надеюсь, что ты не только насладишься чтением, но и сможешь подтянуть английский, потому что изучение языков крайне важно для твоего будущего.

До скорой встречи,

Russianladyabroad
