I recently asked a few of our new IDEAS Associates and volunteers what they would tell someone wanting to work overseas. Perhaps their answers will help you take that next, brave step!
Working at an international organization, I have realized that letting go is an every day experience for our staff and overseas professionals. Letting go of homes, communities, relationships and expectations are all a part of of our routine. But it is also a part of our daily lives, no matter where you live in the world.
