It's estimated that around 800 000 matriculants will be writing their final exams in the weeks to come. Parents are starting to consider what options await their children once they have completed their final year of high school. Some will be accepted to complete their degree or diploma at a University or College while others will travel and explore the world.
Work Abroad Expert, Andrew Benson talks about why matrics should consider working and travelling once they complete their final year.
People think that obtaining your degree after school is the only way to go. A gap year gives you the option to discover who you are as a person and ultimately what you would want to do in life.— Andrew Benson, Work Abroad Expert for STA
Some benefits of working abroad involve gaining valuable experience in your field of work which most companies now require. An opportunity to earn money while abroad allows you to live comfortably while you work and learn. Once the matriculant gets the job, they will be paid in an international currency such as euros or dollars, resulting in a huge earning potential. You will also meet and work with new people that eventually become lifelong friends.
