    I worked as a rep for Thomas Cook for a summer season.

    depends what kind of job you want.. there was club reps, normal reps, kids reps etc..

    for thomas cook use the thomas cook careers website.
    for first choice and thomson use the TUI website.
    i think theres a seperate website for 18-30 reps and first choice use IN2ACTION reps in there holiday villages.

    any questions feel free to ask

    Turns out most of them are looking for people with rep experience.

    Depends what type of work you are looking for. For summer camp work in America I would recommend www.campamerica.co.uk

    if you're looking for work lasting from around 4 months to 2 years I'd check out http://Www.bunac.org they offer work visa to Australia for a year, New Zealand for 2 years, America for 4 months, Canada for a year and a whole host of other things!

    I don't really know much about going out to be a club rep, but I do have a friend who worked in Zante for a season and she did that by just going out there on holiday and asking around for jobs.. Not sure if that's the official way to get things done, but a fair amount of people did I that way when I was there it seemed!

    No no you dont need rep experience! The staff turnover for reps is massive. Just be confident and read up on what your talking about because if you want to be a club rep or mainline rep youl need to do a sort of presentation at the interview talking infront of all the other people who want the job also!

    You could be a holiday rep, kids club rep etc with companies like thompson, thomas cook etc. Go on their websites to find the information you need.

    If you're a native English speaker you can easily teach English abroad in a lot of places. I'm currently teaching at a hagwon (private school) in Seoul, Korea, and having a blast. The pay is pretty good and most schools provide accommodation so it's a great way to save up for further travels in the region, such as China, Japan, SE Asia, etc.

    Check out my South Korea blog in my sig if you'd like to get a taste of some of the cool stuff there is to do here. Cheers.
