The New American Expat: Thriving and Surviving Overseas in the Post-9/11 World
People are taking jobs abroad more than ever, yet overseas employment has never been more complicated or risky. New markets and new opportunities draw professionals overseas, even as the world as we understand it continues to change. For no one is this change more striking than the American expatriate. Faced with shifting and sometimes hostile attitudes, Americans can no longer relocate expecting a warm welcome and an easy transition. Without the proper tools and preparation, working overseas can be an overwhelming proposition. The New American Expat: Thriving and Surviving Overseas in the Post-9/11 World is an essential guide that shows Americans how to be safe and secure, as well as successful, in their overseas assignments. The New American Expat provides a clear plan for thriving in the experience, with tips on how to find a job, negotiate a compensation package and set up a new home base. In addition, this is the only book to address how to be a "good American" while living and working abroad, highlighting the fact that we are all ambassadors for our culture and home countries.
