Why is the Au Pair program good for your career?

The Au Pair program certificate makes a great addition to your job applications. Why?

You moved abroad on your own, proving your maturity, independence and courage. You lived for months in a distant country, proving your ability to adapt to a new environment and to deal with stressing situations. You found common ground with foreigners and mastered a foreign language on native level.That’s what is called Cross-Cultural Competence and what you can boldly write down in your resume.
Beside all the skills and competences you gained during the Au Pair program, there is also one extra advantage of your time abroad. Separated from your daily routine, university, school and family, you will have time to think of yourself and what you really want to achieve in your life.
