How a year in Paris could be your ticket to a brighter future
Share This Article:
Some degrees offer a year abroad in the middle of the course, but if you opted out to get your studies done and dusted, it might be time for a productive break. Taking a year out after university is a growing trend amongst recent graduates, with its main attraction being able to escape the university bubble and take some time to mull over graduate options. Sometimes a graduate job will fall into your lap, but on most occasions it takes a little time before the right thing comes your way. So, not only does a year out give you the opportunity to chill out, but it can also open doors to new prospects which you can decide on in your own time. So what about Paris? The city boasts incredible shopping, museums, art galleries and cuisines and is the perfect place to have a break from the bustle of a university campus. There are also a plethora of opportunities to pick up some flexible work in Paris, for example in shops and cafés, but particularly in childcare and nannying. Nannying and other flexible jobs alike offer the perfect balance of stability and freedom. You can fully immerse yourself in a new way of life, and at the same time experience a new culture which will be an excellent asset to your CV. Having the opportunity to learn a new language is also a massive CV booster and will help to improve your communicative skills, opening new doors for potential careers.
