Best Jobs Overseas With Little To No Experience



1. Working On Superyachts

If you want to travel the world, get paid and not stay in one place then working on a superyacht is a great way to do it. This position allows you to make good money, travel the world and make great connections along the way. It also requires little to no experience!

Once you are hired on a yacht they will train you and mold you the way they want you to be. It does take some investment on your end. In the beginning, start by getting your STCW 95 and your ENG 1, which are certificates that say you are safe to work at sea.

These can easily be obtained within a week and once you have them you are free to get a job on almost any yacht anywhere within the world. There is also a great network that will help you find work.

3. Working in Australia

Australia has long had open borders to allow foreigners to come in and spend a year abroad, by providing a one-year working visa.

However, you are not able to fly over and do any job you would like, as they do have some requirements on which jobs you are actually able to take. But most of the jobs they allow you to work require no experience.

The course takes about 4 weeks and is usually done in the country you choose to live and work in. Every country has a different monthly wage, but it is usually more than enough to live in that country and save money while you are working. So you will have money saved up for continued travel once you are finished with your contract.

Pet Sitting5. House/Pet Sitting

This job doesn’t pay, but you are able to work overseas with no experience, and I technically wouldn’t call it “work”. Trusted house sitters is a great way to travel for free. You are able to pick the places you want to travel to and see what house sitting or pet sitting jobs are available.

Like I said, it is an unpaid gig, but you are able to have free accommodation in exchange for watching someone’s pet while they are on vacation. It is also great because you get to pick the duration of your stay. It is a fabulous way of offsetting your costs of travel.

If you teach online or have another online job, it makes it even better. There is a small fee to sign up for house sitting, but soon as you get your first job it will pay for its self.

6. Aupair

If you enjoy kids and want an overseas job with no experience, a great solution is to become an Aupair. An Aupair is a live-in nanny. You get to pick the country and where you go, along with how many kids you are willing to nanny, how many hours you are wanting to work and what environment you will be set up with.

Most sites work a lot like Tinder, but rather than matching guys and girls together, it matches families with Aupair’s. You can search for families in the areas you would want to work in. Most of the time you are given room and board and a small stipend as you work.

Every situation is different, so you have to find the right environment for what you are looking for. Being an Aupair is a great way to get a local feel for the cultural since you will be living with a family abroad.
