Moving abroad to work in a new job can be a very stressful experience, whether you are being transferred by your company or just decide to have an adventure in Mexico on your own. You can raise your odds of success by learning how to integrate into your new job in Mexico.
Kelly Ross of Ross Associates is an experienced leadership development and talent management expert who works primarily with expats. She knows all about successful job integration. Ross worked for global consulting giant McKinsey & Company for 10 years in 20 countries on three continents before opening her own Chicago-based consultancy.
“I work with many expats who are preparing to work in Mexico or other countries or are already working abroad and need career coaching,” Ross said. “I think at first, you need to get clear on why you want to do this and what it will do for you. Then you need to concentrate on learning about your new environment. I think there is a real value in doing lots of research before you move, although much of it may not make sense until you are actually living there.”
Ross works primarily with corporate transferees but also counsels adventurous job seekers who want to live and work in Mexico and other countries. She said corporate workers tend to have it a little easier because there usually is consistency in organizational practices worldwide, while job adventurers must deal with both work and cultural differences.
