Nowadays more and more people are eager to work in an international environment!
Think about it: how easy is it to have a Skype interview, get a contract, get a plane and settle your life somewhere else?!

We are willing to go over the geographical borders and look for better opportunities somewhere else in the world, we look for new exciting experiences, a better CV, broader views and better language skills. read more
However, although it seems quite easy to find a job abroad, it might not be as easy to adapt to a new, foreign working environment. Why? Well, because we might know the second language well, but we simply have never used it in a formal context, or we lack work vocabulary.
How to manage such situation then? How to learn quickly and efficiently to speak a second language in a new workplace?
Preparation is key to a successful job interview!
So, if you want to have an international dream job, getting ready for the interview is the first important step.
First of all, we need to congratulate you for your determined attitude and energy.

Food is definitely the main essence of traveling.

Home food, street food, local restaurants, secret recipes, unique ingredients, strong fragrances. Can you picture all of this in your journey?
Although appreciating local food is very important, it is not enough to be a perfect traveler.
