Do you know what exactly happens the moment you mobilize or hired to join a company Abroad?
I was called from our company here in UAE to join our project team in Muscat, Oman.
Now one(1) week had passed since I join the project team, I realized there are critical concerns one must know perfectly well to surmount, survive, and remain focus on your goals why you came to work overseas in the first place, or else your purpose will be derailed quickly.

Is your dream job in construction and Engineering project critical to your career success?
More than twenty years ago, engineering, design, and technical skills were the sought after job categories for engineers, architects, project professionals, and everyone could only hope we can get the same job.
Does this hold true today?
If you think it is the same as the career path of Generation X like me, then you are misinformed; because it is not the same for Millenials today.
These occupations have presented a different and a significant shift regarding employability.
Various examples are the emergence of environmental, sustainability, safety in design, occupational safety, project quality, project risk, construction engineering, and project management, etc.
And it's where the phrase "international standard and best practice" emanates from each job categories.
As a result, project management & construction engineering has created new career opportunities.
