Living the life of a traveller or digital nomad is a dream for many people around the world.
Travel may be off limits right now, but that doesn’t stop you from planning for the future. In fact, this is a great time to start planning.
Living abroad in serviced apartments doesn’t have to be a life goal that you only see on Instagram. You can have that life for yourself as well.
You might want to live abroad for just a few months or even a year. But either way, you will probably have to make some money to pay for the experience.
So, how can you make money when overseas? That’s easy. There are now plenty of global companies out there that will allow you to work from anywhere in the world.
This is your ultimate guide to travelling and working abroad in which we will share some popular jobs that will have you getting paid in no time.
Use an agency or program provider
This is a great way to find work abroad as they often give you options to choose from, including internships or volunteer opportunities globally.
Agencies help you to find work for a small fee. They are experts and their guidance can help you make the transition to working abroad much smoother. They will help you to get a visa, driver’s license and health insurance. And sometimes they can even help you to set up an international bank account to make sure you can get paid.
Become an English teacher
There are a lot of countries that teach English language as part of the curriculum. If you’re an English speaker you will be able to teach a language you know deeply, while setting your own hours and being paid a liveable wage.
You will then be able to use your money to explore other parts of the country. There can even be a cultural exchange because as you are teaching students English, they can teach you about their culture. It’s a win-win situation for everyone involved.
Move, then find work
Moving first and then finding work is another option.
Waiting until you find a job before deciding to move can hold you back. So, if you have the ability to move first and find work later, then go for it. As long as you have saved enough money to pay for expenses while searching for a job.
This leads onto the next point.
Get a working holiday visa
If you plan to go abroad for a few months but don’t want to spend all of your savings in the process, then a working holiday visa could be the way to go.
With a working holiday visa you can stay in a country for up to two years to live and work. This type of visa usually doesn’t have any travel restrictions so it’s a great way to get overseas experience to put on your CV. Plus, you will left with loads of lovely memories.
