There are many who go with the idea of living abroad for a period of time, and besides better weather, there are actually many important benefits you can gain if you go abroad to work.
The strongest arguments are:
Understanding New Culture
Radiation of Courage
Days off in the sun
Friends in many countries
Taking International Perspective
The international perspective is very decisive in the times we live in. We are very globalized, and therefore there are increasingly more positions that require you to have the necessary skills, for to succeed on the international stage.
There is no doubt that practical experience of working abroad can provide good tools in relation to understanding other cultures and their work processes.
In some industries, it is almost a requirement that you have experience from abroad.
In other wordsby moving abroad, you get exciting experience for your CV. And it is not only international companies that value experience from abroad. All employers value qualities such as courage, willingness to try new things and the ability to work with many different people. So almost no matter what you have to do after you’ve left, international experience gives you strong cards in your hand.
Understanding a new culture can be a good challenge on a personal level as well. Most countries have an exciting culture that is worth exploring. There are traditions and habits which can be completely foreign and which are therefore exciting to experience. You also get to use the languages you have learned, maybe you learn a new language on top of that and you make friends from many countries.
Therefore, a stay abroad is also a good way to develop yourself.
When you move abroad and start to cope well in the new surroundings, there is no doubt that you will naturally strengthen your self-confidence. It should not be underestimated how much the extra self-confidence can do for one’s future development. Once you have managed a big challenge, there is no doubt that you will not be afraid to seek new challenges in the future, and also have the confidence to do so. Many who have had a stay abroad come back far more mature and with new character traits.
And last but not least, who doesn’t like to enjoy a good day off in the sun? Unfortunately, this is something that is not easy to achieve in Denmark. It is no joke that the joke “I love the Danish summer, it’s the best day of the year” originated.
