Impact of Covid-19

5. Adapting your career plan to take advantage of current opportunities

5.4. Impact to overseas opportunities

In the short-term, free movement globally was restricted. Many countries chose to close their borders. If you planned to work, study, or travel abroad, these plans may now no longer be possible. Some overseas opportunities, primarily in larger organisations, continued to be available virtually including graduate roles and internships.

International travel will continue to be disrupted as countries deal with outbreaks and the ongoing impact of Covid-19. Some countries have been more affected than others during the global health crisis, particularly those without robust healthcare systems and they may take longer to recover.

Although disappointing, remember that this is only a delay to your plans and does not mean you cannot revisit them once the picture internationally is clearer.
