6 Ways to Work Internationally

Adam Starr

Volunteering Abroad


Created by President Kennedy in 1961, the Peace Corps is one of the largest work-abroad opportunities for U.S. citizens. Offering a plethora of jobs, it is a great way to volunteer in developing parts of Africa, Latin America, South Eastern Asia, Eastern Europe, and former Soviet states. While popular, teaching is far from the only volunteer experience available with the Peace Corps. Other popular jobs include working on: Youth and Community Development, Health, Business Information & Communication Technology, Agriculture, Environment, HIV/AIDS programs, and Food Security.

    I loved the summer I spent in Europe as a teenager. But to be honest, traveling abroad just scares me a bit in todays world. And I am not sure I would want to work in a liberal socialist society, which most of Europe has become.

    I think the broadness of this is beneficial to some who are just now starting to think about jobs abroad; however, I also feel that is rather vague for those who are already sure they want a job abroad. In my case, I am already planning my studies around the goal of eventually being abroad, so this didn't really give me any answers.

    So far I haven't seen anything encouraging about international work for people over 40.
