Tip of the month - if you're an expat and you blog, or you're just a reader of expat blogs, you've probably come across Expat blog before. A web portal launched in 2005 by and for expatriates, its ambition is to help people living or willing to live abroad, wherever they are from or would like to go.
There are others in the field, but Expat blog is one of the most active online expat communities, with 420 000 members from 206 countries and 400 big cities. It has various tools to help expats and potential expats: discussion forums, an expat blogs directory, guides, photo albums, a business directory and classifieds.
Why am I telling you all this? Well to meet the demands of expatriates and soon-to-be expatriates in Reunion Island, Expat blog has launched two new dedicated spaces: a jobs section and a housing section. As the name says they are aimed at helping people in their search for work and/or accommodation, which as we all know are two essential steps when expatriating.
Jobs section - the idea is to get access to job opportunities in Reunion Island, wherever you are. You can access job offers, per job category and job contract. You can also create your CV and contact potential employers.
Housing - The Reunion Housing section enables you to look for or to offer accommodation: rental, sale, flat share…it’s up to you! You can also see pictures of the accommodation and get in touch with the person via Expat blog.P.S.
