In half of the world, it is winter. For some this means temperatures are still mild, but for others it is a long, often dark trudge through the colorless months until spring bursts forth once more. During the deepest winter, it is pleasant to plan for what’s ahead. To set one’s sights on brighter days and faraway places. It is the perfect time to explore opportunities. Listed below are a few upcoming residency opportunities to help brush away the winter darkness and remind you to stay the course to warmer days.
