1. Experience

    As you grow older, you’ll realize that material things don’t matter and that the thrill of new experiences is what excites you. Working abroad means going on new adventures, meeting new people, adjusting to a new culture, and more! You’ll definitely be forced to grow out of your comfort zone.

  2. New career paths

    Working abroad actually makes you more hirable. International companies will consider you for jobs that require moving around in different countries; because working abroad means you’re flexible, adaptable, and willing to go on different adventures. You’ll also get to learn new skills in the country you’ll work in, and you’ll get to see how your industry works in this side of the world. Plus, when future employers see in your resume that you’ve worked abroad, they’ll definitely take notice.

  3. Budgeting

    Cost of living in other countries is different, thus you’ll learn how to save and to spend on the things that really matter.

  4. Confidence

    Living in a new place and meeting new people might be scary at first but it shows off your sense of independence. Being independent gives you that sense of freedom and definitely helps in boosting your confidence as well, which will become noticeable when you look for work.

  5. Adaptable

    Like we said, new places, new people, new culture.. it all requires you to adjust. Thus you’ll become more adaptable and easy to work with. Just think, adapting to a new language & culture also helps you become more open-minded. Plus, it also helps break stereotypes or any other prejudiced thought you’ve had before.

  6. Find Yourself

    You may have already heard this line before, that traveling will help you find yourself (cliché, we know), but what we mean is but when you’re in an unfamiliar place you’ll know how you’ll fare and act during the good and bad times, and you’ll get an idea of what you really want to do in life.

  7. Friends

    Working abroad also means meeting new friends. You’ll learn how to make friendships that go beyond borders, and you’ll all learn from each other (especially when it comes to culture). You’ll definitely have connections around the world.
