1000s OF HOSTS NEED YOUR SKILLS
Working Traveller has a work search app that lets you quickly find hosts that need your skills in the time you will be travelling to their part of the world. If you want to get a flavour of what kinds of hosts WT has, click on the links below.
I hear you say ” I have no idea where I will be going to next – so how can I book work 3 months in advance?” That’s fine, you can apply for last minute cleaning and harvest work and often hosts will still need people even at short notice. If getting references on your profile for your chosen skills is as important as getting that selfy at Machu Picchu – then it pays to be organised and have your itinerary literally mapped out on your profile. Hosts can then search and see the skills then need are coming by their way when they need them and book you up for the work they need doing well in advance.
WHERE TO BE A WORKING TRAVELLER?
Visit the ‘Working Wiki’ to find out about visas and what kind of work you will find in the places you want to travel to. We have a long way to go with the wiki, but there are 100s of updates from travellers and hosts from all corners of the world. So do your bit and add in what you know once you have logged in.
Backpackers say ” I have no idea where I will be going to next – so how can I book work 3 months in advance?” That’s because they are on holiday. They are travelling. They are not Working Travellers. If getting references on your profile is as important as getting that selfy at Machu Picchu – then you will want to be organised and have your itinerary literally mapped out on your profile. Hosts can then search and see that you are coming by their way when they need you and book you up to use your skills for the work in hand.
“Can’t get a job – they only want experience. So how to get the experiences?”
Build your references through your work placements
You have heard it many times. Employers want to hire people with experience. All those years of getting your degree seem to suddenly count for nothing. How do you get the work experience if no one will give you a job? References from your Working Traveller hosts – showing how you use your skills, that you are punctual, have a good work ethic and that you can make decisions.
Taking a pic with your Host doing the WT sign proves you where there
Take a picture with your host – both doing the WT sign
Proving to employers you were there – proves the reference is 100% real. Get pictures of the work you did, and a ‘digital stamp’ proving you were there with your host making the WT sign. Add these pictures to your references after you receive them. It makes all the difference.
So like the pic of Ben and his host shown to the left in Columbia, it proves he was there and did the work.
