Many of us are dreaming about living abroad but can often be too scared to look for a job opportunity in a different country. This is when one of our partner job board MyExpatJob.com comes along. Recently we had a pleasure to interview Sonia Poggi, Administrative & Sales Assistant at MyExpatJobs.com
Myexpatjob.com and its current positioning

This job board is opened to anyone who wishes to have, or wants to strengthen an international experience, and thus to make their professional career more attractive in an increasingly globalized future.

Idea of creating a job board for expatriates
Jorge Prieto Martin, Manager of RHExpat has over 15 years of experience as an international mobility Advisor. He began working for big companies and later created his own International Mobility Consulting Firm, RHExpat, which he founded in 2011. After a while he realizes that there are few job sites for expats, and none of them really stands out in the field of expatriation. This is why he decides to create “RHExpat Emploi” with his partner Damien Labdouche by the end of 2013.
More than a year after its creation, as the site was operating in autonomy, a development strategy is implemented. Then follows a new name, MyExpatJob, a new logo, new partnerships, a new policy rate …
With our expertise in the field of International Mobility, we closely follow the latest trends in international labour market, and we constantly listen to the needs of recruiters and candidates.
On the other hand we use new technologies and we rely heavily on networks to develop our projects and make our job board grow every day.
Our company works on a perfect balance, based on empowerment, integrity and client care.
We also provide a point of honor to develop team spirit. We believe that our ability to work together and share, makes us give the best of each other, this reflects on the way we care and provide the best possible service to our clients; by helping people find work in a foreign country, we believe we can positively change their lives, and make their dreams come true.
Global e-recruitment market
The e-recruitment market is definitely being boosted by the arrival of new players and the emergence of new technologies for several reasons.
Scope for better match…
The truth is that we see more and more jobs scrolling on all social networks, for better or worse… Fake job offers, vast pool or non-serious applicants…
Your target audience and current traffic
As regards candidates, they cover a large population that goes from the student seeking an internship abroad to the executive looking forward to emigrate in an international firm, or just simply multicultural candidates searching for jobs in international oriented companies in France.
Regarding recruiters, every single company searching for International profiles and/or experience.
We regularly receive between 6,000 and 8,000 unique visits/month on our website and we currently have 3,335 CV registered (an average of 10 candidates per day).
Globalization has a direct impact on expatriation growth, that phenomenon magnifies constantly and we will be expecting the market to continue expanding.
The challenge will be to be chosen as the jobboard reference for international recruiters and candidates. To reach this goal we bet on our community who is the guts of MyExpatJob.
Next steps and projects
Recently, the site has been completely changed with a new design, new sources of information available, and last but not least … a multiple language website.
So we are going to continue to improve the site by developping more accurate features of our job search engine, more competitive and innovative information, and of course make a point on pampering our community through their feedback.
About the founder
Jorge Prieto Martin has over 15 years of experience in international mobility (IM), at the beginning in large groups and then in his own consulting company IM, RHExpat, which he founded in 2011. He realizes that there are a few job sites for expats, but none really stands out in the field of expatriation. This is why he decides with his partner, Damien Labdouche, to create RHExpat Employment by the end of 2013.
More than a year after its creation, as the site was operating in autonomy, a development strategy is implemented. Then follows a new name, MyExpatJob, a new logo, new partnerships, a new rate policy … MyExpatJob has the means and aspires to become a market leader.
More recently, the site has been completely redrawn with a new design, new sources of information available for you and finally … a multiple language website, not silly for an expats job board, right?
