5 cheap ways to add to your CV while you’re travelling

1

Going travelling? In between partying and sightseeing selfies, there are plenty of ways to add value to your CV without shelling out

 

1. Study abroad

Studying abroad, even briefly, is an awesome way to see the non-touristy side of a new country whilst adding valuable international study experience to your resume. Be careful to check if you’re applicable though – many are only open to current students or recent graduates. Sob.

2. Get volunteering

According to a recent survey by TimeBank, 73% of employers would employ a candidate with volunteer experience over one without, so it really pays to factor in some volunteering on your travels. Sites like Workaway.info and Freevolunteering.net can put you in touch with organisations and individuals looking for volunteers around the world.

3. Learn a language

Learning a foreign language, even to a basic level, can really add something extra to your CV and is a brilliant way to fully immerse yourself in a new culture on your travels. A good hack is to learn a language in a place where living costs are lower – so instead of learning Spanish in Spain, head to Guatemala.

4. Get work experience

Working in a foreign country is a great way to make a bit of money to pay for your onward travels. The Erasmus+ scheme at university doesn’t just fund study abroad but you can also use the scheme up to one year after you’ve graduated to get a grant to work abroad in a European country too.

5. Teach

Whether you want a teaching career or not, teaching still adds loads of impressive skills to your CV, such as communication, teamwork skills and your ability to work in a foreign country. One of the easiest ways is to take a short TEFL (Teaching English as a Foreign Language) course, which will gives you the skills to teach english in language schools all around the world.

Kim Okran ISC in Brazil!

Kim Okran International Studies Centre was in Brazil to hold two Info sessions in the Northern part of the country. The Info Sessions talked about study & work in Canada, as well as Immigration & study. These topics have been very popular among Brazilians and other nationalities due to recent changes in the immigration law and temporary permanency in the country. The new rules are giving more opportunities for those who want to have a post secondary education in Canada and combine it with a work experience.

Beside this fact, two other reasons are attracting Brazilians’ attention. First, students are looking for a work experience to build their savings in Canada and later convert this money into Real when go back to Brazil. Also, they want to have a relevant work experience and improvement of their English skills, as more and more employers in the country are strongly requiring this asset.
Second reason is that Canada is still among other countries, the cheapest one to invest in an international experience, as well as the cheapest cost of leaving.
Kim Okran assists not only students that are currently in Vancouver or Toronto, but also the students in Brazil. All the process of admissions in the ESL School or Post Secondary Institution have the support of our Brazilian counselor, as well as visa process by our Visa Consultant.
Thank you for all the students that attended those Info Session in Brazil!

How exciting is traveling?

Yeah, can be so exciting that you can forget basic stuff to bring in your carry-on luggage thinking only about your large baggage. Carry-ons are the last bags that we pay attention too, for that reason it can be very easy to forget some essential items. Thinking in everybody that is returning from vacation or going to a short trip we made this post to share this simple check list that can be very useful to avoid stress and anxiety while packing. You can also add (in the bottom right) some items that you cannot find on the list. Tell us later how useful it was for you!!

Quanta expectativa você tem quando está prestes a viajar?

Bagagens de mão são as últimas malas que você se preocupa, por essa razão pode ser bem mais fácil esquecer alguns itens importantes. Pensando em todos que estão retornando de férias ou indo para viagens curtas, nós preparamos esse post para compartilhar esse check list simples que pode ser muito útil para evitar stress e ansiedade enquanto estiver arrumando as malas.

Apply to BCIT without an IELTS or TOEFL score is possible!

Have you thought about applying for post secondary education in Canada without having to
submit a high English score?! This would have been impossible a couple of years ago.
In order to accept you, every colleges or universities would have asked you to take a difficult
English proficiency test. Now we have the Pathway Program. A completely new way of
getting into some of the best schools in Canada!
Pathway Programs are a partnership program between ESL schools, and Canadian colleges,
making the transition from international student – to full-time student smoother and much
less painful!

Image result for academic pathway program
There are 5 reasons why a pathway program is good for you:
1. No pressure to submit an IELTS or TOEFL score when applying for a university or
college.
2. The Academic preparations class will help you immensely with writing essays, and
doing research at university.
3. Most institutions give priority to students who go through the Pathways program.
Which means students don’t have to worry about “first come, first serve basis
program”
4. Students go directly to the University once finished with their ESL studies.
5. Before the students apply to the Pathway Program, they are submit an English test in
order to estimates how long it will take before they can go to university.
VGC and KAPLAN are the only ESL schools that have a Pathway program agreement with
BCIT.
Some differences between KAPLAN and VGC
At VGC students who reach the last English level transfer to the BCIT english program called
ISEP 600. This takes them two months to transfer directly to post secondary programs at
BCIT. At KAPLAN student can transfer directly to BCIT post secondary programs. Either
way, student don’t have to spend extra money to register in the IELTS or TOEFL tests.

Question: I was a Registered, professional nurse in my country, but now I live here in Canada. What can I do to work as a nurse in Canada?

Question: I was a Registered, professional nurse in my country, but now I live here in Canada. What can I do to work as a nurse in Canada?

Typically, Canada is fairly strict. It usually does not accept graduates from foreign nursing

schools, or allow foreign nurses to work at hospitals in Canada. Therefore, you will have to go

back to school, and graduate from Canadian university or college nursing program to work as a

nurse in British Columbia.

So what is the fastest way to get back to work?

If you already have a BA from a well established university in your country, and were a practicing,

professional Registered Nurse (or equivalent) at a professional hospital or nursing clinic in your

country, you have the option of going back to school in Vancouver.

You will do this to prepare for the Canadian Registered Nurse Examination. If you pass the

Registered Nurse Examination, you could be allowed to work as a nurse in Canada!

We recommend the Canadian RN Examination prep course at MTI Community College!

In addition to preparing you for the Canadian RN Examination, 8 out of 10 graduates find jobs. In

fact, many practicing nurses in clinic and hospitals around Vancouver have graduated from the

MTI Canadian RN Examination preparation course. Please contact Kim Okran for details!

 

Early Childhood Education at MTI

If you like working with, and educating young children, MTI also has a popular Early Childhood

Education course. The EC course is offered in all MTI Campuses and has a high employment

rate. In fact, it is so popular they have open new classrooms for enrolees each year! You might

want to consider, the 1­year General EC Course or the 2­year special needs course; this course

focuses on educating and helping Infants, Toddlers and Children with Special Needs.
