4 Careers That Involve Travel

If you’re the type of person that can’t stand the idea of clocking into a 9 to 5 job and sitting behind the same desk every day, then you probably love the idea of a job that includes a lot of travel.  Changing your work environment frequently and being able to see new places while still making money is a great lifestyle for people who don’t like routine.

Whether you’re looking to get started on a new career, or are making the switch from another, here are some of the best jobs to choose from which involve traveling.

Consultant

Offering consulting services can often mean getting on a plane and traveling a large amount of the time.  Since your job is to help businesses strategize and create a structure which will help them grow, this can often mean that you could potentially find work anywhere.

Depending on your level of expertise you may find yourself anywhere in the world from Asia to Europe.  Not only will you certainly get your fill of visiting new places, but you’ll rack up plenty of air miles which you can use for personal travel.

Sales

Getting a sales job for a company which offers their products all over the world means that it will be your job to try to spread your company globally by pitching your products all over.  You could find yourself traveling several times a week and interacting with people from cultures all over the world.

Since this is a sales job, it’s important to be confident.  Being shy and attempting to assimilate into other cultures can be challenging.  Therefore, before you pursue a career like this, ask yourself whether you think you’re cut out for it.

Flight Attendant

Getting a job as a flight attendant has a lot of travel perks.  You can travel all over the world for free with your accommodations paid for.  While you won’t always be guaranteed a layover, you will often find yourself being able to spend the night in far-off lands, getting to check out places you would never have seen.

The nice thing about being a flight attendant is that the longer you work for an airline, the more seniority you have, and the more locations you have to choose from before the people who have worked there for less time.

Entertainment

Getting a job as a touring entertainer is a great way to see the world and also fulfill your creative passions.

You could do anything from a touring road show, to even working on a cruise ship at sea. They don’t always pay a lot of money, but not having to pay for accommodations or travel means that you can save a lot of money.
