Can anyone give me insight on working abroad? i want to do
something career related. Although I found several orgs that
offer internships, I have recently looked into volunteering abroad in
Accra, Ghana for video production or media. Specifically, two
programs that have stood out are travellersworldwide and
gapsports. One concern is that they are UK companies and
therefore the clientele is more geared toward British travellers.
Another concern is the expense. Does anyone have any advice
regarding any of the following: 1) opportunities to get experience in
media anywhere in the world 2)using a program such as: i-to-i,
travellersworldwide, gapsports, or globaleyesworld 3)
working/volunteering in Ghana 4) any other avenues i could take.
I need some sort of structure, as i\'m not totally confident traveling
w/o a placement set in place. However, i want to be as immersed
into the culture of another country as best as possible (preferably not
pre-arranged housing w/ other travellers in the same program) as well
as an extended stay that i would be able to finance for about 3 months
(total sum of program fees, accomodation, food, expenses, plane fare,
insurance, work visa = $5,000-$8,000 US dollars)
