@MUStudyAbroad Thanks for opening my eyes to a dream #travel job and the great #studyabroad tips on the EPoP #podcast w/ @PackofPeanuts.
Thanks Ryan for invaluable information on how to land a dream travel job. My son’s into something like this, working for a Pacific resort. Now he’s seriously considering following your foot steps.
@Hamish Healys- Wow, that’s awesome. I’ll definitely pass the comment along to Ryan in case he hasn’t seen it!
Loved the interview. To take it a step further, there are many university programs abroad that accept foreign students and have classes in English. If you enroll directly, they won’t charge you the tuition of your home university, making them dirt cheap. Check out Finland and other European countries–some even pay students a stipend while they are studying! If cost is an issue and you’re looking to go somewhere besides Europe, Latin America and Southeast Asia can be great options. Check out Maya Frost, who wrote “The New Global Student” who’s done great work on this.
@Stephen Reid- Wow, didn’t think of that. Even paying international student fees, I know my buddy who went to school in Canada paid less than he would have here in the States. Seems like the Maya Frost book could be a great resource. Thanks for the heads up!
Aw man this brought back so many study abroad memories! Thank you both for the great interview.
@Eugene- No problem!
