Does anyone know of short term jobs that include travelling overseas?
For example teaching English as a second language. I'm wondering if it's possible to go to a foreign country for say, 3 months, pay my way teaching ESL, and have plenty of time to explore it and learn their language. If such jobs exist, how do I get one? Thanks!
Maybe as a translator, interpreter, a baby sitter, Tourist guide, maybe you could get one through the internet like on Elance.com or gumtree.com or through agencies.
It might depend a little on which foreign country you are thinking about.
ESL is always an option, but you would have to organise it first. Are you meaning to go now, for the Summertime? Perhaps you would be lucky doing Summer Courses. I have to say ESL is dropping off here in Spain where I have tefled(!) all my life. The Crisis, you know..... Have you any experience of TEFL?
Realistically, you would be looking at 6-12 months normally for an EFL/ESL contract. 3 months would normally mean you are breaking the law, even when the schools tell you it is OK. Most require a 6-12 month contract for visas and work permits.
However, if you are interested, I have written about teaching in South Korea (check my profile). It is a great option, the salary is good and the schools are very modern. There is also a good network for foreign teachers, which makes exploring fun!
Thanks! I've checked some of them out. How about a summer position; wouldn't that run 3 months?
Yea, you can get summer positions, but check out the visa issues with that country. For example, as a UK citizen I can work in Europe with no issues, even short term. However, for most of Asia, the US and Aus, I can't do that legally.
If you have a gift of PR perhaps you could sign up to be a cruise trip assistant to help people enjoy their trip and become comfortable with the special trips and entertainment on board. I think this may be a fun experience too.
Besides teaching English, you could consider becoming a nanny. Often people will hire someone for the summer months to look after their children. You normally live with the family. They provided room and board, and others provide a little 'pocket money'. It is more for the experience.
Also, consider becoming a 'chalet girl' in a ski resort. This can take you to some stunningly beautiful places. They are usually responsible for cleaning the chalet and cooking meals. You have free time to ski as well.

Can you buy Common Sense in one of our chain stores linked across our USA? Is Common Sense on the shelf next to the jar of 'elbow grease'? Maybe one could take an Adult Education course at your local high school Common Sense for Beginners - Ages 14 and Up with a Certificate of...

As per the advice of many Hubbers I’ve tried to sign up on Shetoldme, but can’t seem to find their sign up button / page anywhere. A while ago I saw another Hubber comment on experiencing the same problem. Does anyone know what’s going on there? Thanks to all.
