If you've always dreamed of Europe but are afraid to punch a hole in your budget - there is a solution! You live in a century where enterprising travelers have invented and organised a way to travel without doing too much damage to your wallet, and, in fact, even earning as you explore.
In this article, we will talk about world-famous Work and Travel programs.
These internships are designed for those who are interested in a seasonal job abroad. The job chosen for you will be simple - don’t expect to become the executive director. However, you can easily find a job at a hotel reception, as a waiter in a restaurant or receptionist at a beauty salon. Work and Travel programs are designed primarily for students. They are not intended to bring you great earning, but reduce costs to the minimum. However, there have been cases where working travellers remained "in the black".
Of course, the salary and the complexity of the job will depend on your dossier. The higher your professional experience, personal competence and knowledge of the language, the more chances you have of finding an interesting position.
American and European companies are typically happy to participate in seasonal internship programs. However, it should be borne in mind that the number of proposals is limited, and you will be not necessarily “assigned” to the country where you would like to go.

Why do you need a CV when applying to universities in France?
A motivation letter is a very important part of your dossier.
The French government take care of gifted students or those who have low incomes, so that they are not left without the allowances, rewards and social benefits at their disposal.
One of the important stages of applying to virtually any educational institution of France is the interview with its representative.
