Acquiring multicultural experience, strengthening soft skills highly valued by the labor market, significantly increasing the ability to perform in a second language and developing a remarkable and fruitful network of professional contacts; these are four real advantages obtained by those who decide to take the leap to leave their comfort zone and venture to test their professional skills in a new country.
We live in times when the boundaries of professional geographic space are increasingly blurred and, of course, globalization has strongly impacted the trend of more workers deciding to go beyond their own borders. What does it take? Firstly, the security in performance that comes from knowing one's own profession in depth and, secondly, the adaptation and flexibility to adapt to a different cultural context.
Thus, one of the first aspects that will define the potential of an international worker is related to his or her soft skills such as resilience, autonomy, determination, self-confidence and cultural openness, among others.
The other aspect, no less important, is to have a clear vision of the purpose and conditions that the professional seeks by obtaining a professional experience abroad. In this sense, it is recommended to have carried out a prospection of the target countries to which to aim, to determine the characteristics of the labor market in the eligible country or countries and, of course, to be clear about whether the learning obtained can be used to develop their own skills in their country of origin.
The Importance of Organizational support
While being willing to face uncontrolled situations is part of the logic of the professional adventure abroad, the truth is that today's workers can also count on the support of organizational structures that facilitate logistical aspects for professionals. One example is the Participate Learning program, designed for educators coming to teach a second language in the United States. To date, in a country like Belize, since 1987, 12 educators have been part of this exchange, of which 10 are actively working in the United States.
Participate Learning is a complete program that offers educators with more than two years of full-time experience the possibility of doing their job without having to worry about aspects such as obtaining a work visa on their own, arranging to rent a house, finding a transportation mechanism to take them to their job, making sure they have legal working conditions, well supported and with all the benefits and guarantees that a citizen of the country can have, or even having to worry about the immigration status of the worker's family if they decide to travel in the company of their loved ones.
In the case of the Participate Learning program, all of the above-mentioned aspects are facilitated by an organizational structure that helps the selected educators, after the due recruitment process, to have the necessary conditions to be able to concentrate 100% on their professional performance.
The Participate Learning program is now open to apply for the recruitment process with 100 positions for new teachers who want to travel to support bilingual teaching and cultural exchange in the United States. Other requirements for eligibility are: two years of experience as a full-time educator, fluent in English and Spanish, officially certified teachers, a current driver's license and driving experience.
Participate Learning currently has open applications for dual language elementary education positions, both Spanish/English and Mandarin/English alternatives, as well as dual language (Spanish/English) social studies, math or science teaching positions.
