Have you every thought about working overseas? You've got your degree. You've done a bit of work but you're absolutely dying to get into the field? Well, my friend, AYAD is right where it's at. A few of our friends and staff have volunteered with AYAD and many more have gone on to work for Austraining later in their careers. Both are an initiative of the Australian Government and both place skilled professionals on worthwhile assignments in developing countries. Go along to an Information Session in your hear, hear from returned volunteers and be inspired to live and work overseas.
Go on, take a Gap year!
So, you spend an entire year working your butt off. You develop quite the intimate relationship with your desk, an obsession with stationary and an addiction to caffeine. But as soon as you get out, you suddenly don’t have a clue what you actually want to do. I have four words for you: Gap. Year. Volunteering. Overseas.
