How is it different from using Google or other internet search engines to find the information I need?
MyWorldAbroad is a curated site, compiling the most credible and relevant organizations, resources, sites and job boards. It is reviewed and verified constantly and provides access to many more resources than most standard searches would return, as well as ideas, advice and concepts that are key to the development of a global career. The main MyWorldAbroad site is also interactive, with quizzes, customizable searches and stories from students and young professionals who have spent time abroad.
How did it all start?
Founder Jean-Marc Hachey began working towards building this site more than 20 years ago, when he published the comprehensive and popular book The BIG Guide to Living and Working Overseas, which gathered expert advice and resources on all aspects of the go abroad experience. In 2008, he launched the first online version of The BIG Guide and now in the summer of 2013, Jean-Marc and his tram are launching this new, rebranded service as MyWorldAbroad.com.
A whole new visual look and added user-oriented features, functionalities and improved navigation make MyWorldAbroad the perfect one-stop-shop for those interested in going abroad to build international skills and enhance their career prospects. We are proud to have a prestigious list of colleges and universities that have purchased access for their students to help them build global career skills.
