Work experience abroad is an exciting way to set yourself apart from the rest of the crowd when you return from your gap year and want to start moving up the career ladder. Working overseas can open up a whole range of work experience ideas from a micro-finance project in Senegal to social work projects in the Himalayas. Those who return from their gap year with work experience abroad on their CV are usually looked at as being more worldly and employable.
Securing work experience abroad demonstrates to a potential employer that you’re not one to hide in a crowd. You’ve plucked up the courage to try something new and potentially quite scary (moving to a completely different country usually is at first but it’s a good kind of scary) just to set yourself apart from the crowd. Work experience abroad usually exposes you to different types of languages and multicultural environments. Stay on in the country and you will demonstrate your capabilities coping and adapting to these new surroundings and your ability to rise to a challenge.
