If you're between 18 and 30 years old and love to travel, Australia's "Working Holiday" visa program (WHV) is a fun post-grad option. Australia's WHV program allows eligible candidates to stay in the country for up to 12 months - provided they work for six months of that time.
Program participants can do any kind of work on their working holiday visa including full-time, part-time, casual, shift and voluntary work. With more than 30,000+ international employment positions available, there's a resume building (and income earning!) opportunity for everyone. And since this is a working holiday, short-term employment still allows plenty of time to surf, ski and see the diverse sights Australia offers.
Short-term employment programs like WHV are especially enticing to Americans 18-24 years old - a 2011 survey showed that 40% were seriously interested in relocating overseas.
