Working abroad in finance is an excellent way to boost your CV and show future employers that you are a bit of a go-getter, not afraid of taking on new challenges. You can work in places like Tokyo, New York, Shanghai, Hong Kong or Singapore, where you'll gain transferable skills and experience. These destinations will require that you have a working visa, nearly always sorted out by the employer's HR department or your recruitment advisor. But what about getting temporary jobs in finance, leaving you with plenty of time to travel around and have fun too? In Australia, if you are age 18 - 30, you can obtain a working holiday visa which will enable you to work legally in finance. At the present time the Australian economy is still in good shape, so there are plenty of jobs.
