Paid Gap Year Jobs

Travelling abroad for your gap year can be extremely expensive, especially if you are fresh out of college or have not been working for very long. Saving the funds for your gap year trip can require months of hard work. But what if you could travel the world and get paid for it! There are gap year companies who will pay you a wage, allowing you to earn enough to cover the cost of your travel and perhaps extend your stay at the end of your trip. The work experience will also look great on your CV!
