Three things in the world are certain: the female lion does all the hunting in the pride, no cement or mortar or measurements ever featured in the making of Machu Picchu, and the job front is tougher today than it's ever been before. The Perfect Candidate, 2015 model, comes with top-of-the-class results and polished life skills, a rolodex of previous work experience, an overcoming-impossible-odds story, and a rare blood type.
Now, while we can't help you with the magnum opus novel, or the blood type, there's just no beating the power of a compelling CV. Try this one on for size: 'Attended court and visited clients for an Arusha-based law firm, before hot footing to Dar Es Salaam to help with teach and renovations at a local school.' Now we're bragging.
Straight to the facts, then: join one of our teams heading to Tanzania with your choice of Teaching, Law, Care or Business internships, train as an expedition leader in Costa Rica or become a ski instructor in France and you'll be getting a leg up into industries that can otherwise prove extremely difficult to enter. If you have grand designs on becoming a lawyer one day (or a teacher, or a doctor, etc) then this is an ideal way to combine real-world work experience with a varied and exciting trip to another country. Good, eh? We weren't named Best Gap Year Company by the Sunday Times for our water cooler chats.
