How to Add International Experience to your Resume!

Teaching a year or two overseas is a great way to add international experience to your resume and invest in your future. Here’s why.  Most companies these days have an international connection – they buy, sell or operate overseas. So, they are always interested in hiring people with international experience – and the ability to function in a different culture. Teaching also means you can train people and that’s another specialization that companies look for when they hire managers and management trainees.

Working in a foreign country gives you a hands-on opportunity to learn another language that can boost your employ-ability. Some schools will even pay for you to learn the local language. Can’t beat that! Prospective employers see fluency in a second language as desirable.  It’s not only a practical asset; but one that signals a cultured individual willing to make an intellectual effort to go the extra mile.

If you are interested in teaching overseas for a year or two and adding international experience to your resume, I can tell you that there are always many teaching jobs available. The key to finding a position quickly is to be flexible. If you are new to teaching, be ready to accept a teaching post in a country even if it is not your first choice. Once you have experience, you can be more selective. The main thing is to build experience.
