⭐️88 Day Mistakes
AUSTRALIA > Sue Lawson-Jones posts a warning on the Australia Backpackers Facebook group, pointing out that many jobs advertised as eligible for a second or third Working Holiday Visa extension are in fact not. Often, she says, the employer genuinely believes they are eligible when they are not and it is heart breaking counselling people through the devastation of finding out that their months of work were in vain and they are going home after one year because they didn't check.
⭐️More English Language Summer Camps Begin Their 2024 Recruitment

⭐️Take Part In A Flucamp Study And Be Compensated Up To £4,400 For Your Time
UK > If a strepsil, lemsip or chcken soup is the best you can hope for the next time you get sick, how much better would you feel with an offer of up to £4,400 compensation?

⭐️Wildlife Internships In Alaska
USA > As we write, Chegg Internships have over 30 wildlife internships in Alaska listed on their website, adding positive reinforcement that seven out of ten internships result in a full time job offer.
Offering advice on finding wildlife internships in the state in the Wildlife Workers' Network Facebook group, Kate Dziubinska says “There are lots of vacancies because a lot of people find they can’t live in Alaska long-term. If you’re an American citizen you can apply for federal jobs with the Forest Service, National Parks or Fish & Wildlife. If you’re not a citizen there are quite a few NGOs (especially water-related ones that focus on the ocean and rivers) that take on biologists. Or if you wanted to try Alaska out before taking a job you could enquire about volunteering with any of them - that’s how I met people.”

⭐️Hostel Volunteering Possibilities In Jordan
JORDAN > Maria Noya responded recently to a Facebook group question about volunteering in Jordan that Hakaia Hostel in Aqaba and Nomads Hostel in Wadi Musa, near Petra, might be good prospects. Their TripAdvisor reviews confirm both hostels have taken on volunteer staff here and there in the past.
One volunteer at Nomads, NFS83, planned only to stay a week with their girlfriend but ended up volunteering for a month, adding “If you have ever wanted to volunteer at a hostel, I would highly encourage you to talk or email with the staff about it. It was hard work, but the experience and new friendships are more than worth it.”
Also in Wadi Musa is Rafiki Hostel. They don’t mention taking on volunteers on their website, but they do have a Workaway profile. More leads to try are Amman Pasha Hotel - it was a while ago, but the owner told us he loves to have volunteers do a few hours a day here - and Malakot Inn, a Bedouin bed and breakfast in Wadi Rum.

USA > From VIP meet and greets with artists and athletes to everything in between, On Location’s Ambassador Program is a network of staff across the US who are vital to making sure their guests have an incredible experience at their events. From a customer viewpoint their Google reviews aren’t great but Fillippe Noel Dalgaard’s opinion translated from Danish: “Relaxing, as the many sensory impressions were in a massive flow” suggests he for one had a great time.
