This really depends on the industry, job and person…not to mention how much preparation you do before you come home. And don’t forget, you are not just transitioning a career but also a life. Readjusting to life back in Australia ranges from straight away to two years according to the repats we have worked with!
How do I update my CV for the Australian market?
It’s really important to be able to tell your international story in a way that is locally relevant. For example if you have worked for an organisation that doesn’t have a presence in Australia, you need to make sure you can explain your experience in the context of a like-for-like company back home or an experience that is going to resonate locally. We talk a lot about this approach in our workshops on updating your CV which we run regularly and can be found on our Events page.
Even though I came back with my company and a role, I felt lost. Working with Margot helped me rebuild my confidence and discover how my overseas experience could not only be applied locally but leveraged. Ultimately this led to a promotion within my company.

I have worked with Margot for the past six months to build out my portfolio career. The practical application and frameworks provided have helped me logically map out how I approach the market and promote myself in it, having been out of Australia for nearly a decade.
