Get Paid on your Gap Year by Working Abroad

Wednesday 17th August 2011

Work abroad and save for your studies at the same time

Have you ever wanted to spend a season as a chalet worker in the Alps? Or even several months as a ski instructor in Canada? If you’re thinking about embarking on a gap year then why not consider working in order to fund your holiday, as well as saving to go to University when you return? There are literally hundreds of different jobs a traveller can do these days as long as you secure the correct holiday visas for the countries you intend to visit.

Many companies like PGL and Jobs4Travellers advertise seasonal jobs abroad throughout the year. By visiting their websites you can get an idea of the kind of work and roles you can do in each country before you set off. Don’t forget to budget for your journey. A gap year doesn’t need to be expensive if you research and work out your finances before you go, and there are plenty of gap year organisations listed here on Gapwork.com who can help you do just that.
