From our experience working with vets, we have found that one of the best things you can do to hone your soft skills and become a better vet is to spend some time working abroad. Here are four skills you’ll develop that will help you grow personally and professionally.


Working abroad will expand your mind as you constantly absorb new experiences, rise to new challenges, and see new perspectives. You’ll learn to develop a more nuanced understanding of the issues at stake, try innovative approaches, and think outside the box. You’ll move from asking yourself, “Can we solve this?” to “How can we solve this?”

Your problem-solving ability will make you a better vet both in your work with patients and in your dealings with colleagues and business issues. Employers will want to hire you because instead of raising problems, you come up with solutions.

Cultural adaptability

You’ll develop tolerance, the ability to anticipate possible misunderstandings, and a real, practical sense of the diversity and unity of humankind.

Diversity is now more than a buzzword; it’s a must. Unless your practice is very rural, you’re going to be dealing with people from a wide range of cultures on both sides of the examining table. The ability to connect with them with genuine respect and understanding will make you a valuable employee.


Being in a different culture makes you more aware of who you are and of where you come from. You may find the local ways of working and relating to people have strengths you can add to your own. Greater self-awareness will improve your intuition, a lifesaving skill for any vet.

The best vets maximise their potential by working on their weaknesses and optimising their strengths. Self-awareness will also help you recognise the best work environments for you and make more informed career decisions.

Interpersonal skills

A vet with good interpersonal skills can interact and communicate with people in an effective and friendly way. When you visit other countries, you encounter not only different languages but also different body language, manners, and cultures. Through this, you’ll learn to discern intent however it’s expressed, to see other perspectives, and to express your own perspective clearly too.

This will help you build relationships of trust with your team and your manager, which will make you stand out as an employee with high potential. It will also help your networking and your relationships with clients (and maybe even with patients).

Working abroad will help you develop the soft skills every employer is looking for in a vet. It will also bring you the confidence and independence that will set you head and shoulders above other applicants.
