“One of the wonderful aspects of being the author of a successful international career guide is hearing how it so profoundly affects people’s lives. When you are old and in a wheel chair, you will still remember what year you went abroad. Whether you are volunteering, backpacking, studying or interning, you can be assured that your first experiences overseas will be life changing. Like many before you, you may even become addicted to Living And Working Overseas.”
