I originally moved to America for a job, assuming I probably wouldn’t be staying very long. But after deciding to settle in America and to move on from that job, and in fact that entire career path, I had to think about what I would be doing next and how I would get there. I think we all know by now that the vast majority of the job hunting process is actually networking. The first step of networking is talking to people you know: old school mates, old college friends, people you worked with on a Saturday, or really anyone in your history. But what if your history is 4,620 miles away? Then you have to learn to network from scratch, like I recently did.
