Study Abroad

You have worked really hard for years! Your career has been moving along on a pretty solid upward track. Yet something pushes you to reevaluate and consider new options. Or may be you have not been fully satisfied with the jobs you held. What if there was another opportunity to reignite or steer your career by turning back to academia? You have read a number of brochures, spoke to a few academic advisors, considered the costs, the investment of time and prospective rewards.

Volunteer Abroad

You have done it all. You have experienced success and failure, may have gone to the university, built your career, perhaps, have gone back to further your education. You are considering a new phase in your life. Taking a break, a career gap to refocus would be one of the options to consider. Many people who have taken a gap year look back and wish they had planned better for it.

About Yelena

Yelena Mackay
Technology Commercial Operations Executive | Expat Coach | Mentor | Author

My international journey began in 1999 when I moved from an industrial city in Ukraine to the US, straight to the heart of Silicon Valley, California, to study for an MBA. Today, my global experience covers living in the US, Switzerland, the UK, Tanzania and now Singapore.

My career in technology sales operations has facilitated opportunities to work and live in the major hubs around the world. One key thing I have learned through my own experience: all successful global moves have a great support structure, be it sponsors, mentors, coaches, friends or family.

I am passionate about mentoring and coaching women who are interested in exploring international careers. I hope my first book will help you make better decisions and build your own exciting expat life.
