5.0 out of 5 stars the ONLY career guide for adventure seekers May 5 2003
The "Global Citizen" is an excellent resource for anyone who wants to travel or work abroad. Most importantly for me, this book has a wealth of information on careers abroad that I had not thought of before. Most career guides are so narrow in scope that I rarely find much use in them because they are so "8-5" in nature.
The other cool thing about this book is that it's full of websites with info. on every aspect of living, working, or volunteering abroad.
I love the personal stories in the section "A Global Citizen's Perspective" because, as a traveler, you can really connect to the experience of the author and other people who have done what you want to do.
If you are looking for a a life changing adventure, then travel abroad. If you want to stay abroad, then get this book!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Surprised to get so much from this book July 31 2002
What a fantastic book! I don't know what I was expecting, but not such a rich compendium of resources and ideas for aspiring travellers. It has an attractive mix of formal and informal (personal) information from the author's experience. And it's good read too! I've been dipping in at various points and forming a picture that way. It works. I can see the busy reader who doesn't want a novel, and only wants to find the best way to the metaphorical departure lounge. The reader will be informed, encouraged, enabled by this book, as I was!
I'm putting this on my Christmas list for all teenage people I know, who could use an exotic, creative experience.

The Global Citizen is a really great resource for people who want to learn about the on-line resources available to work, study, travel, and just find an experience that will suit each person abroad. Kruempelmann does a wonderful job of dividing the book up in sections to suit people with all different interests, backgrounds and approaches. She applies not only her broad base of knowledge but personal connections as well to give commentary on their enriching experiences abroad. A great resource for students at any level and really for anyone looking for an experience abroad!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars The most fascinating book in the field! Jan. 28 2003
You can't help but get excited about the possibilities of an international lifestyle abroad with The Global Citizen as your guide. From engaging stories (from people who have actual done what you're dreaming of doing!), essential to-do's, and practical how-to's to heaps of international programs and resources, the voice of experience truly speaks throughout the pages. Now you just have to read through, take action (with help from Elizabeth!), and create your new way of life! A must for anyone who wants to live and work overseas.

5.0 out of 5 stars Inspirational Book! May 16 2004
By A Customer
This book is wonderful and I would recommend it to anyone! The author writes on a personal level like she is talking to you and it is also written from a emotional level so it is easy to understand. This book gets you excited about all the possibilities and the author explains any fears you may have and how you can get over them and overall she gets the word across to never give up! She also gives e-mail adresses from other people who have experience travel. This is a great book, everyone can benefit from this.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Advice for Launching Oneself Overseas Feb. 20 2003
This book is a must-read for anyone with an international background and who is aiming to work or study overseas. Elizabeth's book is full of great advice, insightful observations -- and most importantly, genuine inspiration -- for those who are just getting started on a path towards an international career. I only wish that a resource like this had been available 10 years ago, when I was getting started on this path as a recent college grad!

5.0 out of 5 stars The Only Book Sept. 25 2002
My husband and I have been discussing moving to Europe off and on for a couple years. We finally said lets just start making plans to do it. But we decided to be smart about it and do some research. I believe everyone who's been
overseas has written a book about it. But yours is the only book that covered all the bases. Actually when looking in the bookstore it was the only book of its kind that we could find. It was fate, I suppose.
