With retrospect, my decision to travel to Sri Lanka as a Travellers Worldwide Volunteer has proved to be amongst the most critical and rewarding choices of my life to date, allowing me to travel in safety with complete confidence, and to progress both professionally and personally.

In September I was offered a 6 month contract with MTV as their creative intern, and upon nearing the end of my contract, have now been offered a year contract at the BBC as production co ordinator. 

I just wanted to say a massive thank you for my experience, both work and culturally, in Australia. I would hugely recommend this to anyone, especially those who want to break into media via an alternative path. Even for those who do not want to obtain a career in the media, my employer said she was impressed with the month I did in Australia, because it showed I had the initiative to get out there and do something productive, and it was something that stood out amongst the hundreds of CVs she received!

I really hope you continue with your programs across the world, and that people benefit from them as much as I did. It really is something I will never forget. Thanks a million Carmen Butcher

I have just finished my medicine interviews and I cannot do justice to how important my experience in India was to my application, so much so that yesterday I received an offer from Manchester (where I really wanted to go!).

Not only this but my experience contributed to me getting a job in the NHS. My experience in a foreign healthcare setting gave me something great to talk about in interview and as a result I gained employment as a healthcare assistant (or auxillary nurse) on a surgical ward, again something that impressed at interview, and a job I am not sure I would have gained without my Indian experience, especially when you consider how competitive job applications in the UK are today!

After graduating with a law degree in 2005 I did a Travellers Worldwide voluntary placement with a commercial law firm in Argentina in order to gain more legal work experience.  As a volunteer legal assistant I researched legal issues, drafted contracts and attended client meetings.  I had to work both on my own initiative and in a team.

The placement allowed me to make an informed decision about my career.  I decided that I wanted to work in the public legal sector, rather than for a private law firm.  Next week I will start my new job in the Legal Services section of a successful County Council. 

I genuinely believe that my gap year experience helped to make me a more attractive candidate because of the transferable skills I developed, such as being adaptable, problem solving and vital communication skills. Lucy Keenan
