I have chosen this program for few personal reasons. I had to leave France as soon as possible because I really needed change. As I needed to go ASAP, I wanted first some security before going on the other side of the world. Having help on the administrative procedures and a work contract was very appreciated. I didn't know exactly what to do with my life so the 6 months contract appeared to be the best option to me, not too short, not too long (in case I didn't like the country, lifestyle etc..)
So the main reason of choosing this program would be the security. But keep in my mind I was keen for adventures and it was like the best way for me to chase my dreams.
