Here are some Jobs to Satisfy Your Wanderlust
Posted 05 Jan 2017 02:58 PM

If you have endless wanderlust, you can get the best of both worlds by getting a job that requires you to travel. Traveling for a living is a way to make money while doing what you love, so it's a win-win! Here are some career options that may be the perfect fit for you.

1. Consulting
Consultants are problem-solvers, providing companies with expert advice on everything from management to marketing to IT. You won't be tied to one company as a consultant; rather, you'll travel from city to city, visiting the businesses that need your help. These visits may be either short- or long-term, depending on just how much support a company needs.
2. Travel Industry
It may sound obvious, but if you want to travel, look for a job in the travel industry! This can be anything from working as a flight attendant or a pilot to working on a cruise ship to becoming a travel writer. Much of the time you're traveling, you're also working, but you'll also have time to get out and explore the places you visit. And as a travel writer in particular, getting out and exploring is part of your job.
3. Recruiting
As a recruiter, you'll be expected to travel to colleges and universities around the country to recruit the best new talent, whether for a company or for an athletic team. During the peak of recruiting season, you'll probably spend more time on the road than in your own bed, but during the off-season, you'll find yourself spending more time in the office.
4. Sales
While some sales jobs require you to stay behind a desk or in a retail store, others — like pharmaceutical sales — require you to cover a territory, which involves lots of travel. Depending on the size of the company, that travel could involve simply driving to different cities in your geographic area, or it could involve flying to a different state every week.
5. Teaching English
English teachers are in high demand in many foreign countries, and in most cases, you don't even need a teaching credential to get a job. The travel involved in this job is a little different — you won't necessarily be seeing a new place every week, but you will get to fully absorb the culture around you. Most of these positions require a year-long commitment (or more), so you could teach for awhile in one country and then move on to the next.
6. Travel Writer
Travel writers seem to have dream jobs — they travel the world, and many will get VIP treatment in hopes of a glowing review. Getting a travel writing job is tough, and you'll definitely need some good sample writing to start with. Start writing for free or on other topics to see where it will lead you. While you're establishing yourself, your pay may not be consistent or even enough, so you may have to do other jobs to supplement your income. You could also start a travel blog to build up your portfolio and your reputation in the industry.
7. Archaeologist
Depending on what type of archaeologist you are, you may be able to enjoy a lot of fieldwork, digging up ancient ruins. You need to go to graduate school to attain a career in this field. This job is perfect for the person with a love of history, culture, and the outdoors.
8. Reporter
As a reporter, you can choose to go overseas, maybe working for the foreign branch of a media company based in your country. It's definitely helpful to know another language but not always required.
