Its tough decision time for seniors graduating high school with college costing so much and jobs so hard to find. Many students who might be considering going to college might be having second thoughts when they find out how much it costs now days for a degree that in many cases, isn’t really going to help them get a job.
Yet the alternative of getting a job right out of high school is daunting as well. One might go many months before something as low paying as a minimum wage job can be found.
So, what to do?
18 year olds looking for a job might think about going overseas to teach English. What this would do would be to give them many life experiences in a foreign culture along with giving them the work experience and pay they need. When you are single and have few responsibilities is the perfect time to try something like this. Your freedom will allow you to find work in the country you desire (some countries are better for this than others) which will allow you to travel and experience things you never would at home.
How do you find overseas jobs teaching English? Just go online and Google “TEFL” or “teach English overseas” or anything like that to find out what you need to do to make something like this happen. Its a big step and a big decision, there is no doubt about that. But if you are an adventurous young adult who wants to see the world, now might be the perfect time to get a teaching job in a foreign country.
Remember even if you’re teaching English you can still visit English speaking countries, for instance in the UK there are lots of immigrants who need native speakers to help them learn the language.
