I'm fairly bored with life, so what options are there to get away from all the shit here for a while?
Anyone know how I can get a job abroad for the summer somewhere? This country is giving me cabin fever.
keep them coming
shame the initial outlays for flights/registration/insurance are so steep
you can just get them to sort the visa.
and apply for them. :)
and applied for a placement abroad to do my research project
and pow! got working in switzerland, awesomes
i couldn't be arsed with a masters
i'll be in my 30s when it finishes
but i just don't care any more xD
i have a very well-paid job just now, but i'm a bit bored by it, and i'm going to get stuck in it if i don't leave soon... plus i've been doing long-distance with my girlfriend for 2 years now, and that's pretty annoying. she's just finishing her phd now and has secured a reasonably-paid job, so now it's time for me to go back to uni and sponge off her for 4 years :D
YES I AM AWESOME
They have summer resorts all around Europe and winter resorts in skiing destinations. I worked on a beach bar, 50m from the Med, serving middle class English people beer and cocktails. Got paid very little but was the perfect antitdote to Uni. Some people were doing a summer then a winter season and they have loads of different types of position to fill, from chef or kitchen porter, to nanny, life guard, waiter, to sailing instructor. In the winter you get a free lift pass and winter clothing. It's a good laugh, as long as you know how to work hard and party hard, dude.
