Post-graduate Work, Internships and Volunteering Abroad:
After graduation, you can work abroad for several months or up to a year in many countries. Jobs can be menial or service-oriented: pub work in Ireland, picking grapes in Greece, or working on a cruise ship. Career-training jobs are more difficult to come by and involve a much greater effort on your part.
Teaching abroad is one of the most accessible and popular options for paid or inexpensive long-term stays overseas. However, this means that the higher-paying jobs, arranged in advance, are more competitive. Typical destinations include China, Japan, South Korea, Eastern Europe, and Latin America. Proficiency in the local language is rarely a requirement, although it may be helpful.
