This popular course is designed to provide family members with knowledge and resources for employment and training once overseas. Rules and regulations of overseas employment inside and outside the mission will be explained in addition to FSI's online training resources and the ins and outs of security clearances.
"An excellent class, which not only helped me to organize my career goal but also helped me to fully prepare my job application."
"I was able to learn the help and resources available for me to get employed overseas, which makes me feel positive and relieved."
"This course left me with a more positive feeling about employment - that even though it might take a little while, I have a chance at finding employment that will be meaningful for me."
"Great course, please keep offering it, it was very informative. Most Eligible Family Members (EFMs) (myself included) know vaguely about opportunities and acronyms out there, but it's hard to translate that into concrete steps to take in order to have the full picture. This class was good because it clearly showed 'this is who you are and fit in' and 'this is what you can do'. Thank you."
