Are you a student who’s at least 18 years of age? Or have you just recently graduated from university within the last 2 years? If your answer is “YES” to any of these two questions, then let me ask you this next: do you dream of the opportunity to travel the world, whilst at the same time gaining valuable (paid!) work experience and the chance to volunteer with some rewarding community projects?
Then read on…
AXA’s Great Global Adventure
The Great Global Adventure is an amazing competition for any student or recent graduate who wants to see the world and learn along the way. This annual competition is brought to you by AXA, a leading global company in insurance and asset management. (And it will be open WORLDWIDE! Awesome, right?)
Not only does AXA pay most of the travel and living costs for up to 8 months, they have also organised for the lucky winner to complete two paid internships at AXA offices across the world — which is great for the resume! Plus, the winner gets the chance to complete a valuable voluntary experience with one of AXA’s Corporate Responsibility partners.
And the best part? AXA will shape the prize around your personal interests, meaning that you get to choose the amazing destinations that you would want to travel to the most!
Great Global Adventure 2015 Winner: William Moore’s Dream Trip
One lucky guy who is already making his travel dreams come true is William Moore from England, the winner of the AXA Great Global Adventure 2015. His trip has been customized to his preferences and he’s been jetsetting for almost five months now!
He has been able to explore a significant amount of Asia, including:
- Hong Kong
He`s currently in Indonesia and then soon after that, he’s setting off to South America, where he will be able to see such sights as:
- Machu Picchu
- Galapagos Islands
- Iguazu Falls
- Easter Island
- The rainforests
The world is surely his oyster and William is taking full advantage of what AXA has offered him — and this includes two six-week paid internships at his choice of locations around the globe. Most of his hotel stays and travels have been funded and he has used some of the money from his paid internships to go off the grid and do some additional sightseeing.
He’s also looking forward to the Indonesia Community Project, which is done in part with Prestasi Junior Indonesia, a member organization of Junior Achievement and one of AXA’s CR partners.
Check out William’s incredible journey so far on his Instagram page.
