Careers Workshop Series

For many expats who have been out of Australia for five, ten or more than 20 years, coming home to Australia can almost feel like starting again. 

Knowing how to clearly articulate your global experience, identify opportunities and engage with your network is critical to a smooth return. 

Join our founder, Margot Andersen, for this pre-recorded workshop series designed to provide you with practical frameworks, tools and tips for managing your career transition. 

Each workshop is approx 60 minutes and will not only provide you with the necessary frameworks and insights to help you self manage your career transition priorities. All sessions are supported by practical templates and materials to assist you with your preparation.

The five sessions are: 

  • Localise your CV
  • Leverage your LinkedIn profile
  • Tell your international story with local relevance
  • Create your ‘go-to-market’ strategy 
  • Build your Australian network 

Tickets are available here.

15 April 2021

10.30 – 11.30 

Virtual Morning Tea: with Margot Andersen.

Returning ‘home’ after living abroad is all about reconnection, however we all know that this can sound a whole lot easier than it actually is.

Designed to connect you with fellow global thinkers and repatriates, our ‘coffee chat’ will provide you with the opportunity to share networks and tips on how others are reconnecting to their local communities, navigating the employment market and overcoming those all-too-common repatriate challenges.  

Our online morning tea will be held on at 10am Thursday 15th April and will run for 45 minutes.

All you have to do is pop the kettle on, dial in and enjoy a moment meeting some other friendly and like-minded repats.

Tickets are available here.

Connection & collaboration

Returning home after living abroad is all about re-connection, however, while we are in the midst of practicing social distancing, this does not mean disconnection for our community.

As way of building and maintaining our connection we will be hosting a combination of online workshops, virtual catch-ups and in person events when restrictions allow. Our virtual events will give you the opportunity to ‘e-meet’ and most importantly, connect with each other and Insync Network Group’s CEO and founder, Margot Andersen. Our in person pop-up events will allow us to make the most of the moments we have together!

Insync Network Cocktail Event - Sydney

Jan McGrath spent 17 years abroad in the US, UK and Hong Kong, and is a senior leader of global strategic business transformation and change initiatives, within the financial services industry. Jan returned to a new home in Australia, Sydney, having been originally from Melbourne. Her return journey came with challenges familiar to many repatriates, such as articulating her professional experience to local employers. While her work was the impetus for her move abroad in 1997, it was a need to be closer to friends and family in Australia that brought her home.
