I'll be graduating come July and I've recently been seriously considering the idea of working abroad.
I'm not talking about doing some random 9-5 whilst I go travelling like a gap year or anything, but a serious job. Whether its a year or two of work experience or preferably a start to a solid career, i.e. some form of Graduate Scheme.
I'd really like to go work in Germany. I love the place and the people, and my friend is taking a year out there, so I could even live with him in Stuttgart; but of course I won't be turning down better opportunities in other places just to live with my mate. I only did German to GCSE but I've always been pretty good at Languages, I got A* and I still remember a decent amount; I'm sure I could take a short intense course over the summer and get myself to a decent level (like B1-B2 according to CEFR).
I'm doing an English Literature and Language degree and have some work experience and a lot of good Extra-Curricular stuff on my CV. I'm not massively fussed about what exactly I'm getting into; even my Grad Scheme apps in England have varied from General Management/Entrepreneurial Schemes to Marketing and Advertising etc. etc. So we'll say business, something that involves leadership and communication skills.
Anyway; that's the sort of thing I want to do - I was wondering if anyone had any advice? I've had a look at the prospects website's country profiles and other stuff but I was wondering if anyone has done anything similar or know anything about it? Anything will be appreciated!
Thanks in advance
