Do you dream about moving abroad and changing careers? Three career changers share what it's really like and how they made it happen!

About this Event

  • Does remote work inspire you to imagine what it would be like to move to a different country?
  • Have you always felt more at home somewhere far from where you grew up?
  • Have you been dreaming of being a "digital nomad"?
  • Do you think there would be more opportunities to do what you love or to raise a family abroad?

As travel remains restricted and we get used to connecting online and working from home, you might find yourself dreaming of living in a completely different place. From a different language, laws, and attitudes towards work, life, and education, moving to a different country is one of the most disruptive and bold steps you can take. Add changing careers to the mix, and you might be embarking on one of the biggest adventures in your life.

I invited three individuals who took the leap and changed address and careers: they will join us from Portugal, Argentina, and the United States, for an in-depth conversation about following your dreams - wherever they take you.

Repurpose Your Purpose is a program to help you figure out what to do professionally by using what you already know to do something new, and support you while you go for it.

In 2021 we are back (virtually) with our first How to Change Careers event of the year.

From the very start, Aurora Meneghello set out to create Repurpose Your Purpose as a program where career changers could come together to have the in-depth conversation missing in their lives. A space free of judgement and where everyone feels welcome. One of Repurpose Your Purpose's signature experiential events is the How to Change Careers series, started as an in-person series of events in Los Angeles. All events are now online and feature speakers from all over the world.

Psst: if you are ready to change careers, sign up for the waiting list to join the next Group Program to Change Careers.

Founder Aurora Meneghello's career advice has been featured on CNBC, Glassdoor Blog, Bustle Magazine, and more. She is a skilled facilitator and writer, sharing her unique approach to career change in person and online through events, trainings, workshops, coaching, and on her blog, which is read by thousands of people every month.


No BS, no fluff, come ready to:

  • Learn how to take COURAGEOUS ACTION and go after impossible dreams
  • HEAR from successful career changers who changed careers after moving to a different country
  • Find INSPIRATION and ideas to follow your dreams
  • Stay after the panel to MEET fellow event attendees for small group shares (this part will not be recorded)

We'll talk about:

  • What it's REALLY like to change careers as an EXPAT
  • How to find INSPIRATION and create a career that fulfills you
  • How to connect and NETWORK with others when you don't know anyone
  • How to leverage your previous EXPERIENCE and KNOWLEDGE in a new career...and in a new country
  • and more!

Meet and hear from professionals and entrepreneurs who moved to a different country and changed careers to pursue professions or businesses that they feel passionate about.

Psst: This is NOT going to be your typical panel discussion
