How Can I Find Paid Work Abroad?

Do you dream of taking a getaway gap break and finding the perfect paid job abroad? Don't be daunted by the prospect of an international job search; with so many services and gap year programmes offering the perfect assistance, you'll be heading out to find paid work in some of the most wonderful places in the world before you know it!

Become a working wonder

If you fancy a gap year but also want to prove your worth worldwide, finding a paid job abroad shows potential employers and family alike that you are being responsible while fulfilling your travel wishes at the same time. If you do your destination research and check out the job opportunities on offer before you go, you'll find paid work abroad in no time!

Get with the programme

It's best to set up your opportunities before you go, so you have a guaranteed way into work once you are abroad. The best way in to a reliable and reputable job is through a job package or established gap year programme, where you can get help with your CV, interview techniques and that all-important job search. Our job packages are varied and exciting, ranging from work in the hospitality industry, working with kids as an Au Pair in the USA, to specialist outdoor farm or ranch work, or educating kids with some paid teaching work.

Get CV-ready

In order to find paid work abroad, you need to have a great CV to stand out from the crowd, so make sure that you include all your skills and experience so you can wow international employers. Booking a job programme can help you tailor your CV to guarantee you make the best impression at any interview abroad.

Don't forget your visa

Don't forget, one of the most important considerations when finding paid work abroad is finding out if you will need a visa to enter your country of choice. Many popular working destinations, such as Australia and New Zealand, require you to have a special working holiday visa, which is available for travellers aged 18-30. If you are heading to diverse destinations such as South Korea, getting a visa is often only possible if you are signed up with an established programme such as those available through Gap360. Visit our visa pages for further visa advice.

Paid work perfection

Finding paid work abroad is your meal ticket to some amazing travel experiences as well as some serious skills for your CV, and finding paid work abroad is easier than you think. Don't flounder about on your own, unsure where to start, enrol in a gap year paid work programme and you'll find paid work perfection abroad and get the gap year working wow-factor!
