Before I moved (or shift to be Indian correctly…) to Mumbai, I did some researching on a number of web sites. One of the sites that I came across that time was one called Expat blog. This site has now recently been upgraded, and they asked me if I could put a post on my blog about the changes they have done to their blog. As I’m, mostly, a nice guy, I can surely do that. So please read below. All information here is provided by the team at expat blog, so please do complain directly to them if there is something you don’t agree with.
What’s Expat blog? It’s a web portal launched in 2005 by expatriates, for expatriates. Its ambition is to help people living or willing to live abroad, wherever they are from or would like to go. Expat blog is the most active online community of expatriates, with 420 000 members from 206 countries and 400 big cities.
Who is it for? For all the people living or wishing to live abroad. It is a platform of expression and exchange, an information source about expatriation.
How does it work? The website offers various tools to help expats and potential expatriates:
– discussion forums
– expatriate blogs directory
– photo albums
– business directory
New features : Jobs and Housing sections
To meet the demands of expatriates and soon-to-be expatriates in India, Expat blog has launched two new dedicated spaces: a jobs section and a housing section. They are aimed at helping people in their job and accommodation search, two essential steps when expatriating.
The idea is to get access to job offers in India, wherever you are.You can have access to the [pays] job offers, per job category and job contract. You can also create your CV and contact potential employers. Here is the link to the India Job section: http://www.expat-blog.com/en/jobs/asia/india/
The India Housing section enables you to look for or to offer an accommodation: rental, sale, flat share, flat, house…it’s up to you! You can see pictures of the apartment and get in touch with the person via Expat blog (you need to be a member of Expat blog to post an ad).
Talk to you soon!
