Moving Without Shaking by Yelena Parker is a compilation of information and data to help women and anyone contemplating and planning a career abroad. These brave women are leaving their home countries for more opportunities in foreign lands where they do not speak the language, the culture and food are different, and basically everything about life and work is completely out of their comfort zones. Besides using her own experiences, the author interviews eight other women, from different backgrounds, to ascertain what makes someone successful in moving to a different country for employment, and what attributes it takes. Each woman is from a different country, continent, economic background, political environment, and has different individual dreams about their life. The book is organized in a very easy format that takes the reader through every step of the relocating process to help ease the normal fears and trepidation that such a drastic change of life inevitably brings.
First time author Yelena Parker writes her “how-to” book with authority, experience, and a vastness of insight that is very enlightening and empowering for anyone dreaming about working globally. Parker is a Ukrainian American who first moved to the United States to pursue exciting opportunities and has lived in five and worked in twenty countries successfully. She is truly a global citizen of the world and teaches the reader how to go about moving, relocating, and working in a new country with the least amount of stress and worry. This book is an invaluable and “must-have” tool and reference guide for everyone – from the dreamer who has only a vague idea of working in another country to someone negotiating a package with their company, to someone who already has their ticket booked. This book is not just for women, but for everyone contemplating a move abroad. Parker inspires and empowers people from every walk of life and background to pursue their dreams and live a bigger dream of trotting the globe!
