The Job Hunting Podcast

62. My career story: From immigrant to CEO.

December 28, 2020

From a very young age, I remember my favorite play game was to pretend I was working. I was the teacher, the secretary, the horse-jumping instructor! My barbies were doctors and vets, and this was before you could actually buy a “professional” Barbie! My family had great aspirations for me, and those involved me getting a job and being successful at it. I started working very young and became very independent; I never looked back. It's been great for me, and I encouraged my kids to do the same. 

In this episode, you'll listen to me explain the steps my husband and I took to move to Australia and why we did it. It's great sharing my story on the podcast, as many people ask me about it: why I’ve moved to Australia, why and how I changed jobs, and how I got to where I am now.

In this Facebook Live, which we have now edited into a podcast, I focused on what I believe was my key challenges along the way: finding a career in a new country and juggling career and family.

Here are some key takeaways from what I learned along the way:

  • How building relationships are important for your career and sanity!
  • Planning and designing your lifestyle and budget to reach your career/life goals and passion.
  • How to make the best of every opportunity, if not creating your own.

In sharing my story, I hope to inspire you and encourage you wherever you may be in your path right now.
