How to land your dream job
Getting that job
Perhaps you want to have a year off before you get into further study. Some call this a gap year.If this sounds like a good idea, explore your options and see if you find a job or traineeship that relates to the career you have in mind or even do a traineeship! For example, a high-school in England might need an assistant for their agricultural department, a summer camp in California might be looking for a horse-riding instructor, doing a Certificate II in Conservation and Land Management may help with an Environmental Science degree. Spend a bit of time digging around for options that suit you.
