Welcome to MyWorldBlog, the brand new blog area of MyWorldAbroad. We think you’re going to like it here!

What is MyWorldAbroad?

It’s the leading online service for young people who want to go abroad to study, intern, volunteer, work or travel. University, colleges and individuals subscribe to the service to gain access to thousands of pages of advice, resources and links to international opportunities.

What will you find on MyWorldBlog?

The MyWorldAbroad site is designed to take you from your first day on campus to your first professional job abroad, offering advice and resources every step of the way. MyWorldBlog will enable you to access top tips on a variety of go abroad-related subjects, profiles of organizations we love, interesting and inspirational news stories, highlights from our most popular articles, student stories from abroad, and more. This blog is your way of staying connected and motivated as you set out on your cross-cultural future – whether that involves participating in on-campus international clubs, heading abroad to volunteer in Tanzania or building your career in an internationally-oriented field.

Stop by often for quick tips and updates, or continue on into MyWorldAbroad to access even more in-depth information. This blog's content is fully accessible, even to those who aren't MyWorldAbroad subscribers. 

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.
