Settling Into Working Abroad

Settling Into Working Abroad

If your career is now taking you overseas, congratulations - You're about to have the adventure of a lifetime!

Whatever the reason for your next move, you'll want to make any location you're in feel like home and the Sprinkles of Style team is back with a new post - all about how to settle when working abroad.

The Little (And Big) Touches

It’s often the little interior touches that can make any place feel comfortable and just like home.

It really is worth gathering some items together which you know will help you settle in the first few weeks abroad. Whether it’s certain framed photos, a decorative ornament or two, or even an armchair; they will lift your spirits if you’re feeling homesick and make your new place look great!

 Check out places like the 1st Move Overseas Moving Company so that you can send one or two boxes over before you move which you can then collect when you've arrived in the new location. 

Being Proactive And Brave

No matter what anyone says - working abroad can be daunting and once your interior space is sorted, you'll want to get used to the location and environment you're in. 

It's worth making an effort to get out and about as much as possible - take your laptop to a local cafe and chat with the staff. They'll have some great local knowledge of the area and will steer you in the right direction to find some places you'll love. 

By meeting new people, having a chat and networking - it'll do you a world of good and if it's part of your new job, you could benefit endlessly.  

There we have some tips on how to settle when working abroad - it can be a daunting process but it'll all be worth it in the long run.

    You’ve listed some great tips in this post, especially taking framed photos with you to help settle in and be surrounded by familiar, smiling faces! Getting out and about straight away and mixing with people is also really great advice, to avoid becoming isolated. Happy Valentine’s Day, gorgeous!!
