Don't Settle Once You've Settled


Unless you’re a tourist to a certain country, try not to be too mesmerized with the picturesque landscapes, sumptuous delicacy, and anything that your senses can come across. Well, there is nothing wrong in falling in love with a new place who wouldn’t want to and why you shouldn’t.
But if you are an immigrant with a goal to start a life different from where you grew up, you should seriously take into consideration of how to equip yourself with the knowledge of starting anew--from finding a home to landing a job.
Don’t delay. In fact, it’s easy to be overwhelmed with the influx of information from various forms of media. Start slow but continuously search and make the most of every opportunity of learning.

Where to Get Information

Public Library
This serves as your headquarter of information on which you should regularly visits not only for learning but entertaining as well.

Government Websites
Much information are provided on government websites and the best part, links to other useful websites are included as supplementary resources.  And the process continues from one site to the other.

Non-profit Organization
Various organization for immigrants or newcomers are very much willing to help you in adapting easily and becoming successful in every way possible. I personally like visiting organizations because of their friendly aura that I don’t hesitate in asking questions anymore. In fact, they will even encourage you to ask and to stay informed. Maintain a constant communication and you’ll have wealth of information and benefits in no time.

Blog Community
Who else can understand your need than someone who is once in your shoe—clueless and overwhelmed, not to mention mesmerized. Bloggers usually share their experience and the best way to go about things so as to spare others from the same ordeal. You can even make a comment or ask them privately via e-mail.

Don’t forget to sign-up for newsletter to stay up to date. This may sound too much of a work but sooner you’ll benefit in the long-term; and most likely, you may become a source of information, a reliable one, with knowledge you have gather and based from your own experience.

In this manner, you’ll be much enamored with the city while you’re becoming part of a thriving environment, day after day, as if you never left home.
