EXPATS IN VALENCIA
A new location can appear attractive to an expat for many reasons. The new position or career move, attractiveness of the city, salary on offer, country and culture, climate, geographic locality, infrastructure for entrepreneurs and startups or image of the city.
Almost everything in their chosen city is unusual. Including language. Besides their busy lives, they need to settle in, find their way around and acquire a feel for the place. Expats have to invest in their new home.
Expats are international business professionals and highly trained employees. They form one of the most attractive groups of people in the world, are well educated and earn high incomes.
Help and guidance
Depending upon their company, expats may or may not receive assistance with information and contacts. Experienced employers of international staff are able to pass on knowledge. Those new to the field of hiring expats are unable to.
Relocation and service agencies can help with a new home and a few snippets of wisdom. Occasionally, a city authority will offer their own service centre, which assists new arrivals. Many locations offer a selection of relevant yet incomplete information on official websites.
Social media can be ideal for some. Expat groups on Facebook offer answers to the same topics again and again. Groups on Meetup are varied and a perfect way to meet likeminded people. A third option is Internations, which offers regular meetings for their members. Occasionally, unique international or bilingual clubs can also be found.
Research shows that expats yearn for a sense of belonging. Levels of contentment can make or break the ability to lead a good life abroad. The acquisition of knowledge is often fundamental to their quest for happiness. Helsinki, for instance, has published results that show expats have a clear desire to discover all the information they require. But in a language they understand and all on one place.
That’s the reason why Amazing Capitals was created well over a decade ago.
