Students are coming to the end of their final exams this month and are starting to look for something to do either over the summer or before they join the rat race. There are many alternatives, from travelling around Australia to trying to get on the last ever Big Brother, but employers are looking for something different especially when competition for jobs is so fierce.
That’s why when we came across this web site we thought we had to review it. www.workingabroad.com has been set up by people who have themselves worked around the world volunteering on different projects and gives very helpful advice on what opportunities there are and how to go about applying for positions.
All the information on the site is free and you can also read about other peoples experiences which will help the reader make up his or her mind as to what they want to do. In addition, for a small fee of £29 they will help identify opportunities that meet your criteria more specifically. Of course this does not guarantee that you will find an organisation or activity that will take you on but it will give a good start to your search.
If you are looking for something different to do in your gap year, want to use specific skills from medicine to engineering or just don’t want to follow the crowd we’d strongly recommend www.workingabroad.com . A very well laid out web site that enables like minded people to share their experiences and maybe even do something that will make a difference.
