Back in April 2013, when I first started traveling, I took my job at Go Overseas. It’s a volunteer/study/work abroad review and placement site, helping young people like myself choose the road less traveled and get abroad before settling in to a lifetime of monotony, bills, and the kind of bad back you get from sitting in office chairs all day. Ergodynamic! Needless to say, I really believe in their mission. They do good stuff.
I started out as a writing corps member. There are dozens of them, sending in a few articles a month on a freelance basis. It was a nice little way to supplement my intake while getting to build my portfolio. After a few months, I was asked if I wanted to apply to become a Contributing Editor for the site. A vague title, but it allowed me to work closer with the company’s higher-ups while doing the same writing I was already. I applied and was accepted.
For the next couple of weeks, Go Overseas is doing an interview series with the contributing editors, and mine went up last week. You can read it here. It gives a little more insight into what I do and why I do it, without some of the more dickish qualities you pick up in my own about me. I swear I’m actually a nice guy! Check it out and get a peak into this mad brain.
