Whatever your level of qualification, there are plenty of resource websites and organisations to advise you. Follow the guide.
Working overseas. Where? When? What opportunities are on offer? How do you research them? How do you apply? : Summer jobs, au pair positions, working holiday visas, WWOOFing, internships or long-term professional relocations… which one is right for you?
Think about your personal strengths and weaknesses to focus your research and assess what you need to do in advance to make the right choice in terms of the type of stay you’re looking for, whether you need to refresh your language skills, how long you have to plan, what funding you’ll need and other questions.
Working abroad requires certain skills such as adaptability, good organisation, sense of autonomy and an openness to other cultures and customs.
Think hard about your choice of destination because your language preference doesn’t always guarantee the best geographic location for you. What do you know about the country? What skills do you have in relation to the country’s professional requirements ?
Find out about the administrative formalities, the job market and the recruitment conditions, as well as local regulations, remuneration conditions and the legal status you would have (e.g. local or expat contract, consultant, volunteer, etc.).
