Students ParisSpending a summer working abroad is a fantasy shared by many young people. Working abroad can facilitate the mastery of a foreign language, provide an in-depth exposure to a foreign culture, help summer employees to develop contacts for post-graduate employment, and spur personal development.

That's the good news. On the not-so-good news front, it's not as easy as you might think to find a job overseas. It's important to start your job search early, because you will most likely need to obtain a visa, which can take time. There are other work requirements as well, depending on the country where you want to work. Start now and you will be able to transform that fantasy into a reality.
