We have already mentioned some hostels in Brazil where you can work in exchange for accommodation and some people asked if it is possible to get jobs like this from abroad as well. If you're on a tight budget, but want to travel, do an exchange program or maybe just spend some time in another country, know that there are some ways to get jobs that already give you accommodation and meals.

This is already a reality in dozens of countries and there are websites specializing in these types of opportunities. The workload is reduced, normally the traveler works about 3 or 4 days a week, since the most important thing is that you also enjoy and can enjoy the destination you have chosen. The modality works on the basis of exchange, where everything is agreed with the professional and with the host – the hostel owner, allowing everyone to gain from it.

You choose the duration of the work and schedule the period in advance: it can be two weeks or months! Work Exchange or “work exchange” in free translation, is nothing more than the exchange of a few hours of work per week for accommodation and basic expenses. A practical way that allows people to travel spending much less, in addition to being able to contribute in some way in the places where they go.

How to find a job abroad?

Some sites centralize these opportunities, allowing users to locate vacancies according to the choice of destinations. That's how the worldpackers, a site created by a Brazilian who traveled the world helping in hostels. There are already more than 90 countries and dozens of hostels registered. Also in the concept of work exchange, but with other opportunities besides hostels, the workaway promotes volunteer work in various projects around the world, and can be another alternative for independent travelers to travel more.

How do I apply for opportunities?

These sites act as facilitators and bridge the gap between those who are hiring and those who want to find jobs. If you found a cool opportunity and want to know more about the vacancies, just register and after that, contact the antitriões and negotiate your participation.
