You can travel for fun and you can travel for work but what some young adults don’t know is that you can travel for both! With that said, here are four summer jobs you can look forward to as a young traveller.
1. Pick Grapes in France
France usually harvests its grapes from early September to late October. During their harvest season, they are going to need a lot of workers to do grape picking, and a lot means about 100,000 grape pickers. Most farms offer reasonable compensation and benefits, and some provide free lodging and meals for their workers.
Anyone can find both entry-level jobs and professional careers at several vineyards in France. Typically, small farms need entry-level grape pickers to do grape picking, while large farms use automated systems that require professional farmers’ help.
The agricultural industry in France needs diligent and honest workers to do seasonal or full-time work. So, if you want to get a job on a grape farm, you must contact a vineyard owner today.
2. Work in a Ski Chalet Summer in the Alps
Ski chalets differ in size. Others can accommodate a maximum of 8 people, while others can handle up to 40 individuals, but of course, with the help of staff members. Landing a position in a ski chalet will require you to prepare breakfast, clean up, make refreshments during mid-day, and prepare dinner for clients.
During transfer days, the chalet will need an overall cleanout for the next clients to come. If you are in charge of creating a shopping list for a week, you will have to go down the Alps and get your supplies from a supermarket. As you see, working in the Alps can be fun.
3. Teach English in India
Private and international schools in India usually hire English teachers or ESL workers all year round. Teaching in India will require you to have 1 to 2 years of teaching experience. Moreover, India requires a Bachelor’s degree, and some may require TEFL Certifications. That is to ensure that you have enough knowledge and skills to teach English abroad.
If you want to teach in India, you must first contact their embassy. Depending on what your position is, the school may offer to pay for your working visa.
4. Volunteer as a Family in Borneo
