4) Want to find out more?
Remember, once you have searched on Careerslink (for example searching for vacancies in Africa or Europe) you can then set up for Careerslink to email you when new opportunities come up in that category (click “Email me new jobs for this search“). We would also recommend doing a search by “language requirements” for the languages you can speak. Firms both in the UK and overseas will often specify language requirements and you could be in with a good chance. There is a good video on using Careerslink in this way at: http://www.careers.manchester.ac.uk/students/findingwork/
