When professional writer Jo Parfitt joined her new husband in Dubai and received a stamp in her passport that read ‘Not Permitted to Take up Employment’ she was devastated. Since then she has let nothing prevent her from maintaining a professional identity regardless of regular intercontinental moves and the responsibilities of her family. Jo went on to create and sustain a shifting portfolio of portable careers, ranging from writing a cookbook called Dates in Oman through being a successful journalist in Dubai to running seminars and workshops worldwide from her current home in The Netherlands. In 1998 she realised it was time to write a book that would inspire and empower others to develop their own career in a suitcase too. 2013 sees the launch of the fourth edition of Career in Your Suitcase, this time with career consultant, Colleen Reichrath-Smith.
