Professional and personal development opportunities
Employers are always looking for something extra on your CV. Getting international experience via professional and personal development opportunities abroad is a great way to demonstrate to employers that you are a good candidate for a job.
Options include studying abroad, completing an internship, working at a summer camp and much more, so if this is something that appeals to you, start to explore your options!
I would definitely recommend the working abroad to other students! It has been an extremely valuable and rewarding experience that will definitely impact on my future career choices. Not only has the internship itself been extremely fulfilling, but the opportunity to explore another country has been very exciting!
