What can you do?
There is an amazing array of opportunities available to those looking to take a career break and travel to see the world and experience something new. The world really is your oyster when it comes to career break opportunities, so it is always worth doing your research and finding an opportunity that is constructive, taking you out of your comfort zone, broadening your horizons and letting you experience something new.
Changing Worlds offers a fantastic selection of constructive travel opportunities in a range of countries worldwide. Choose from one of the following types of career break experience:
- Volunteering in disadvantaged communities
- Internships and Work Experience in professional work environments
- Paid Work roles in specific industries
- Courses and Qualifications to improve your skill set and employability
- Tours for those who are keen to explore or have an adventure
- Summer Camps to assist with the development of children
You could lend a helping hand and spend time volunteering (perhaps with children in Thailand or with animals in Costa Rica); take a course and learn a new skill (perhaps a Game Ranger Course in South Africa or a Ski Instructor Course in Canada); experience working overseas and find a paid work role (perhaps teaching in China or in hospitality in New Zealand); explore a country on a captivating overland tour (perhaps a tour of Thailand or a tour of Ghana); or use your sporting knowledge to help coach sports to children in a summer camp in St Lucia.
Most career breakers end up doing a range of activities and a combination of different opportunities during their overseas adventure. So take the opportunity to do something you have always wanted to do, and see something you have always wanted to experience on your own career break adventure.
