[ID:7047]Working Holidays & Gap Years tells you how to ramp up the value of your time abroad. To most people, the term “working holiday” means traveling while taking low-skilled jobs to pay their way. This is a great way of getting around, but here at MyWorldAbroad, we also promote taking a professional approach to the working holiday. If you hop on a plane and travel the world, you’ll have a fantastic short-term experience, but when you travel, you have an opportunity to develop as an individual and as an international professional. The tips in this section will help you make the most of your time abroad.
- Even “low-skilled” work can have high value on a working holiday: Even if you work in a café or retail store, you’ll still be able to hone your cross-cultural communication skills and get better at speaking the local language.
- Get creative! Gap years and working holidays can be whatever you want them to be. We recommend adding a career-bossting component, no matter where you go.
