Take a Career Break and Enhance Your CV

Thursday 13th May 2010

A break volunteering abroad adds to your career, says MondoChallenge

If you are considering a career break, you may be worried that it could harm your career, but in fact the opposite can be true.

Due to the economic situation more and more people are finding that they are in a position to take a career break. Volunteering abroad is the perfect opportunity to take a step back, reassess your situation and actually enhance your CV. It is a chance to truly push yourself and find skills you did not know you had and in the process may help you stand out from the crowd and get that job on your return. You can contribute to peoples lives and help in their development by sharing your skills with a local community, as well as experience a different culture.

MondoChallenge is the career break specialist that can help you achieve something out of the ordinary. They work with more than 100 partners in 9 countries. However, what is most important is that you are matched with the right project and that your talents are utilized while there, even if you have a short amount time (they can arrange projects from 1 to 6 months). Volunteer projects in teaching, business development, childcare, healthcare, community development and much more are available.
