As a skilled migrant or international student, finding a job in your field or starting your own business is not easy. You feel your English is never good enough, your confidence is very low, you are away from family and friends so you feel there is no support and you don’t have time to research as you have to work crazy hours just to make enough money to pay for rent and food. You should not have to flush all the years of study down the toilet and settle for a job or life that is less than you are qualified for!

In the Google Hangout – video with Andrea Palacios, you will learn:

1. Andrea’s personal journey of coming to Australia, finding a job, settling in a home, studying and eventually going on to start Blue Studies International.
2. Overcoming obstacles – find out the challenges Andrea faced and how one day she found herself lonely, jobless and broke and discover what led to her turning point.
3. Hear the powerful messages, themes and morals Andrea learnt along the way that led to the decisions and motivation behind starting her own business.
