‘Re-Invent Yourself’ Career and Networking Programme for International Spouses

Coming to Estonia as an accompanying spouse, you might lack a support network and information on your new environment. Work in Estonia offers you just that, in a programme packed with professional networking and ways for you to evolve professionally in Estonia.

Since spring 2019, Work in Estonia has carried out the “Re-invent Yourself” programme to support international spouses in Estonia in re-inventing themselves professionally. Ever since the project has showed continuous success, as more than half of the participants have found a job or other professional activities in the months following and the programme is highly recommended by the participants.

Moving to a new country together with your partner can be quite challenging. Often as the accompanying spouse, you have to leave behind your career – thus setting your professional goals and path in a new environment can be rather complicated.

Questions like “Can I even work here without knowing the language?”, “What are my options for working?”, “Where to find professional contacts?” or “How to set up a company or find volunteering opportunities?” are common. And without having a network of people around you, it is hard to answer them.

The 4-week programme aims at making this transition a lot easier, through the following:

The 2023 programmes are organised by Work in Estonia in cooperation with Estonian Unemployment Insurance Fund and MoveMyTalent. The events will be held in English at the International House of Estonia in Ülemiste, Tallinn and the program is free of charge.Participants are expected to attend all sessions.

I commend the Estonian government for sponsoring and approving this program, it significantly shows how welcoming and assisting the state really is. I also  commend the organizers of this program for doing a great job by helping us (the participants) in our career pursuit.‘ – 1st group programme participant
