Transworld gave me the structure and direction to start a new profession where I could combine my love of travel with my education. When I completed the course, I left for Dubai - with a job arranged by Transworld that included accommodation and a plane ticket. When I arrived, there were few surprises thanks to the information and preparation I'd been given. The Transworld staff will give you the training and the techniques, then they use their years of experience and contacts to help you find the job that suits you best. All that provides a formula for success that is rare.
