Looking for the best suited and desired job right after graduation, may not always be an easy task, however, that should not compel one to sit back home and sulk. There are thousands of internships that are both productive and exciting and every graduate should avail for such opportunities to sack in unconventional experiences before settling for a 9 to 5 desk job. This also helps in learning to use time wisely, visit other countries, find work and broaden horizons.
Opting for such choices is definitely productive during the gap years –
Joining the Peace Corps – this is for the ones who have the urge to do something for others and thus bring about a change to the world. The corps always look for young enthusiastic members to bolster efforts in developing nations across the globe.
Go WWOOFing (World Wide Opportunities on organic farms) – for all graduates pursuing agriculture or wanting to learn farming, this program acts as the perfect match making system between farms and willing workers. They get free room and board in exchange for working on the farm.
Teach English abroad – for the grads, who are dedicated to education for a longer time than just summer might opt for teaching. Native English speakers are often in demand in south Asian countries. This program is highly competitive today and also provides certification which helps in the future.
Going on a working holiday, being an adventure guide or joining community work – these are the best options for the adventurous grads. Volunteering in non-profit organizations, making good use of the experience in adventure sports or collecting funds as a tourist are exciting and fruitful opportunities.
Internships: Doing internships in public relations, as computer analysts, software developers, research analysts, teachers etc are productive and educational for future use.
