Gap Year Jobs Abroad

Gap Year Jobs Abroad

Author Susan Griffith's book and discussion of the Gap Year describes why year-long gap year jobs, short-term work, internships, teaching English, long-term travel, and summer study are part of an important trend that has spread from England to the U.S. in recent years. We explore the primary options for U.S. students with the authors of The Gap-Year Advantage.

Given the current economic environment, it is likely that Exploring Your Gap Year Options will be one path in life to pursue before or during your college years. Even during the most prosperous times, the experience of extended travel through jobs abroad opens up new worlds and invaluable adaptability skills in the long term or as part of your career choice.

Please note that many jobs abroad require visas which are sometimes not easy to obtain for U.S. citizens. Information on how to obtain visas allowing work can be found in our piece on How to Get Work Permits Abroad. See William Nolting's article on the subject: An Introduction to Short-term Paid Work Programs for Students and Recent Graduates for programs abroad that bypass work permit issues in several countries, particularly for Americans
