4. What are the benefits of working abroad?
Undoubtedly, working abroad can provide you with memories and experiences that most can only dream of. Working holidays abroad are often viewed as ‘once in a lifetime’ opportunities, and there are many benefits to this. People who choose to work abroad experience different cultures, religions and behaviours. They get to learn a lot about other cultures and thus, learning about themselves in the process. Supplementing this, you can learn new languages which can be transferred to future employment such as a translator, or other jobs abroad who require bi or multi-lingual persons.
5. Do I need any special qualifications or experience to work abroad?
This is dependent upon the job you go for. Some positions do not require much experience as training will be provided on the job. For instance, working as a chef will require food handling knowledge and training, work experience and lots of stamina! There are some roles, such as driving jobs, that will require driving licenses and permits. Find out more here.
6. What are the passport requirements?
Passport soon to expire? Not to worry. At the time of your application, you should have a valid passport. If your passport expires during the application process, you can renew it at a later date before travelling to your destination.
