After ten years we are closing The Working Traveller as a separate website and moving to a new home as part of the Jobs Abroad Bulletin.
Read our gap year mini mag. Every three months we present some ideas for your year out - regardless of how long that may be.
We recently relaunched one of our old neglected sites into a gap year mini mag. Every three months we will present some ideas for your year out - regardless of how long that may be.
We have added some new Pinterest boards with the focus, as you would expect, on working abroad and gap years.
It is with some amusement that I look through each year's beginning of the year post where we outline what we intend to do in the coming days, weeks and months. With the hindsight of an additional 365 days added to the calendar I get to ask myself: “Just what did we actually do last year?”
I should have guessed our plans for 2015 would be so much pie in the sky. Four months on little progress has been made with the volunteer work ebook; though this is largely due to the simple task of changing the date, from 2014 to 2015, at the bottom of one of our sites morphing into a redesign project to make our websites suitable for users on mobiles and tablets.
The Working Traveller has a new look. We have been thinking of making a few changes to the site for a while but the impulse to do so happened quite suddenly.
It is a new year and, though we aren’t one for resolutions, the replacement of one calendar with another usually gets us thinking about the direction in which our sites are going. Once the holidays are out of the way new projects can begin and neglected and overdue tasks are tackled.
After last week’s battle with internet connections, to the point of moving from one side of our hostel accommodation to the other to pick up a neighbouring property’s wifi connection, getting this current batch of jobs abroad online has been a joy.
It has been a very good week for new paid jobs and volunteer positions sent to our sister site the Jobs Abroad Bulletin. Normally I like to make sure the ten best positions make it into our email newsletter (sign up at www.jobsabroadbulletin.co.uk) but quite a few that normally would go in didn’t make it this week.
