there are plenty of ways to add value to your CV without shelling out

Going traveling? 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 and 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.
