Career Change Pathfinding

Finding Work as an Immigrant

Finding work as an Immigrant

Last week I had the pleasure of running a Pathfinding and Career Workshop for Spirasi, an organisation that works with refugees. It was inspiring to see how many want to learn and succeed in their new home. But some are disheartened because they feel it is harder for them to find work in Ireland. Immigrants might have more obstacles to overcome, but they are not insurmountable. No matter where you come from, you always have options. It is just a matter of continuously improving your English and being creative in your job search by meeting as many people as possible and rework your CV to make you stand out. My father did it as a Spanish immigrant coming to Germany and I have done it here in Ireland. And if we can do it, so can you!

Career Change Multipotentialites

Keep Learning

In our modern society hardly any jobs will be for life anymore. It is very likely that you will have to change companies or even careers sooner or later. You might also have to work longer until retirement and update your skills continually to stay attractive to prospective employers. So make life-long learning a habit now.


For the multipotentialites amongst you this is the easy part as you very probably love learning and trying new things. You also thrive on change because it gives you the variety you crave.
