Reputation of Russian women in the world: how to use if rules apply, what to do if you don’t comply

In Russia, I was a “strong 5 from 10” type. Small, curvy, well educated, with many interests in various areas, I was not in the centre of attention.  Surprisingly, this has changed once I moved abroad – but not necessarily for the best. This article will be a summary of stories from some countries, which shows, how men around the world are fixed on the idea of “Russian brides”, and how to deal with that.

Your “abroad” is guaranteed: work&study agencies vs. your own way

Looking for more security, political stability, financial opportunities, better healthcare systems, Russians are ready to invest an impressive amount of money in an opportunity to move to another country. As Russians get less and less satisfied with the life in the country, the amount of agencies promising an almost guaranteed place in summer schools, universities, companies etc. grows as well. This article will be concentrated on pros and contras of working with “work&study aboard” agencies. What can you expect from them? When are their services pointless? What should you look at by yourself when preparing a big change in your life? Let’s talk about it openly.

One-language career: where can you build an international career in English only?

For this article, I will concentrate my attention on such countries as China, Germany, Denmark, Spain and, yes, Russia. I work with many expats from different countries from  all levels and many industries, therefore I understand the consequences of coming to another country without knowing the local language. Can one come to a country with a 0 to A2 level of the local language and feel comfortable at work? In the everyday life? Let us have a look at it.

Thought for the day

Just today I understood that more than 10 years later I came back to develop the region, which granted me my knowledge of the German language during a school exchange program when I was 15…I did not even think about moving to another country at that point..

We all pay the price – sometimes in a very unexpected way. I can only hope that I will be a good return on investment=))


До меня только сегодня дошло, что, спустя более 10 лет, я вернулась развивать регион Германии, в котором изучала немецкий язык по программе школьного обмена, когда мне было 15…Я тогда даже и не помышляла о переезде в другую страну..

За всё приходится платить – порой крайне неожиданным способом. Надеюсь, я сумею окупить вложенные в меня усилия=))

Dating culture: Russia vs. Europe

When you move to another country, you need to figure out many things: where to eat, what to eat, how to dress yourself, where can you buy basic things you are used to, how are your favourite hygienic pads called (no jokes here, it was quite an issue for me in Spain!).. And, most importantly, you need to understand how you can socialize – including finding a boyfriend.

Have you seen a Russian woman in Russia? She is wearing high heels, sexual clothes, complete makeup even if she just goes to a grocery store. The reason for that is that we have an open dating culture. This means, you can meet the guy of your dreams any day at any place – and he WILL ASK for your number.

Question room – Internships for 30+

Today we got a question regarding internships and fellowships for ladies 30+. This is a very important issue, especially for those living in developing countries, as it is much more difficult for us to get an invitation for an interview because of the visa issues.

First of all, I would like to remind you that experience is worth nothing for an HR officer if you can’t present it in an excellent CV (Resume). For this reason, I am currently working on a video about creating a perfect EU-CV “from scratch”- but this will take some time.

For now, I would like to bring you some new ideas on how to FIND an internship or a fellowship as a 3d country citizen if you are 30+.
