Interviews with 50 New Zealand students who participated in overseas experience (working holidays abroad) found they had complex, whole-life motivations; few did intensive planning prior to departure. Six distinct forms of overseas experience were found, having more or less relationship with career development. Most students experienced major changes after the experience. (Contains 24 references.)
