Finding Work Abroad

This article gives details on finding employment outside the United Kingdom

Who do I need? 

Careers and Employment - this is the University of Hertfordshire's careers service; they provide information, guidance and advice to you to increase your employment prospects once you have finished your studies. 

  • Visit the Careers and Employment website - You'll find a number of resources within the 'International Experience' section to help students find employment abroad such as Going Global. This resource includes world-wide job openings, internship listings, industry profiles and country-specific career information.  
  • Disney / University of California Placement Programme - The University of California, Riverside Certificate in Hospitality & Tourism Management or Management, offered in partnership with University of Hertfordshire is a 30 ECTS credit certificate program that blends academic coursework with supervised paid training at the Walt Disney World Resort near Orlando, Florida. Please note that in the current climate our participation in this programme is uncertain.  We hope that this programme will become part of our offer again. (Updated May 2020). Please email Careers@herts.ac.uk to find out more. 
  • Book an appointment - Book an appointment with a careers adviser to discuss your career options in regards to working abroad. You can also get CV and application form feedback and interview support. For information on other ways a Careers Adviser can help you have a look at the following resource: How can a Careers Adviser help? This hand-out lists just some of the topics that can be covered in consultation with a Careers Adviser.
  • Workshops and Events - Keep an eye on the Events section on Handshake, as we sometimes hold International job search workshops. These workshops will help you find out more about working and/or studying abroad and the fantastic Erasmus placement opportunities available in Europe.
