With InterNations, say good-bye to the struggle for a new social life abroad
Founded in 2007 by three friends in Munich, Germany, InterNations is today the Survival Kit N°1 for expatriates worldwide. Its aim is to render life abroad easier through social integration. InterNations is multifaceted and offers networking possibilities both online and offline and mainly provides expatriates with all the information they might require prior to their expatriation or once in their new environment.
Mark, an American engineer, was transferred for a project to Beijing. Five days after his arrival, he started suffering from an acute tooth ache. He described his state as being unbearable. “I hadn’t started work yet, had hardly started settling down and knew nobody in the city. And of course, I didn’t speak any Mandarin. I urgently needed an English-speaking dentist. The InterNations platform was a life saver! I posted my request in its local forum and was amazed how responsive and approachable the members were.”
The editorial “country and city guides” index reliable information about the country the expats are going to be or are living in. In forums and online discussion groups, members can also share their experiences and give valuable tips to others on how to better settle down in their new surroundings. Important information, such as international schools, hospitals or restaurants are also recommended.
InterNations’ big success is closely linked to its providing its members with an exclusive international environment, during 260 global monthly events. Networking therefore occurs live and friendships are immediately bound. The members can as well get together in smaller “Activity Groups” according to their interests and needs (e.g. professional networking, family and kids, sports, etc.).
