The Advantages of Time Spent Working in America

Sometimes it’s necessary to get away from it all and to try something different. This is a philosophy that every young person should embrace at least once in their life, and is one of the reasons that so many young Australian adults find themselves working in America. Doing so has many benefits.

Working in America is an opportunity to force yourself out of your comfort zone. After all, you’re in a new country, where you’re obliged to learn new rules. That means it’s important to think on your feet, inspiring innovation and quick thinking – traits that are crucial for any young individual to learn. From driving on the wrong side of the road to tipping culture to the appeal of American football, there are a lot of things you’ll be forced to learn about – fast.

When you’re working in America, especially if you work at a summer camp, you’ll also get the chance to meet people from all walks of life. It’s a perfect way to broaden your horizons. Get used to answering questions about whether or not you rode kangaroos to school – it’ll happen – but don’t be too surprised if some of your own misconceptions get upended as you learn more about the world around you.
