Have a terrible case of the travel bug? Crave exploring in cities you've never been, with people you've never met? Done with college and ready to take on a new adventure?

Here are the top 5 fives to live and be successful abroad after graduation.

1)    Teach English Abroad. This is probably one of the easiest ways for Americans to live abroad after graduation and make money at the same time. There are numerous websites and companies that place fluent English speaking individuals in countries all over the world. Duties can range from teaching young children at international schools to conducting English classes for adults. This job is both simple and extremely fulfilling as you get to help individuals while living abroad and enjoying the sights of a new country.

2)    Join The Peace Corps. The Peace Corps is an organization that places volunteers overseas with a modest living stipend, and gives a transitional allowance when one's service comes to an end. By joining the Peace Corps, individuals can explore and have incredible adventures in new countries while providing service to those who really need their help. This makes the joining the Peace Corps one of the most fulfilling yet exciting ways to go abroad post graduation.

3)    Get a Job with an American Company that has International Branch Locations. While this is an excellent way to go abroad, it does take a little more time than other options. First it is important to work for a little bit within the U.S for a specified company and then request a location transfer. However, there are some companies that upon hiring an individual will ask if they prefer a specified location. This is one of the safer options that is best for living abroad in the long-term as it guarantees income and employment. One can therefore go abroad without any fears about financial security.

4)    Freelance Work. This is a quick way for individuals to immediate go abroad after graduation. Marketing oneself as a freelancer is definitely for the brave as there is no guarantee of constant employment or income. However, there are many jobs in the fields of graphic design and technology among others for freelancers abroad. This type of work also allows individuals a great amount flexibility and often times requires constant traveling and moving around abroad (the more adventures, the better right?!). 

5)    Study/Intern Abroad. There are numerous companies who are willing to take recent grads for internship work. Additionally there is a common misconception that studying abroad can only happen while an individual is in college, but there are numerous companies, including AIFS and Semester At Sea among others who are willing to place recent graduates as well in study abroad programs. While studying or interning abroad are great ways to travel post graduation, the main problem is that most of these opportunities are unpaid. Therefore, if an individual has the financial means, this is definitely something to look into.

All in all, these are just 5 ways for people to go abroad after graduating college and there are many more ways to fulfill one's wanderlust. If you want to travel, think creatively and work hard to make it happen. The world is your playground.
