Expat trend: the work and travel year is replacing the gap year

Why Generation Z is choosing to work overseas


While older generations may have saved traveling for tomorrow due to the pandemic context, centennials accepted that they might not have that guarantee in the near future so instead of canceling the traditional gap year they found a new way of traveling: they are moving abroad for work. Join the Expat trend!  If the world is your office, discover how to work and travel overseas with our relocation job offers in your native language. 

Live and work without borders

Centennials are fast becoming the most important workforce segment in the new global job market. At City Job Offers we are recruiting Generation Z candidates like you that are applying for relocation jobs. Observing the patterns and behaviours of centennials have suggested that learning a trade, speaking a new language and having a relevant international work experience are becoming more important for them.  

The gap year is an extensive travel habit also known as a sabbatical year or a long break before or after college/university. During this international episode, students are usually engaged in educational and developmental activities, apart from travelling. In this pandemic context, centennials are not intimidated by the prospect of moving for a job. They are adding some type of regular work to the travel experience overseas. If you like this idea of spending a season in sunny Lisbon or Mediterranean Barcelona, apply for our relocation programs. You will achieve personal and professional growth with this incredible opportunity of getting a job in Portugal or finding a job in Spain. Choose your work and travel destination and say hi to your new adventure!
