9 skills you can bring home after living and working abroad

Articles abound in the last few years about expats returning home after so many years overseas. Said articles often focus on the difficulty of readjusting to reverse culture shock and not offering much in the way of solutions. I can attest that going back home (or elsewhere) is feasible with some discipline, a game plan, and patience. Having seen many changes in employment worldwide, it is possible for you to stay within the field you worked in overseas or begin an entire new career using the very same skills you developed there.
