HEY GUYS! I hope all of you are doing well in this challenging time. In this blog, we will discuss the jobs you can go for if you love traveling. Here are a few of the jobs which you can go for if you love traveling.
It just so happens that English speakers hold one of the most sought-after skills in the world: speaking English. It may seem simple, but it’s one of your best traits.
Teaching English in a foreign country is just as rewarding for you as it is for your students. It will allow you to travel the world with ease. Jobs are in abundance; however, you may require a certification – thankfully, that can be attained with ease in around a month!
BECOME A HOME CRITIC
Ever dreamt of staying in beautiful homes for a living? Well, now you can! Plum Guide has an impressive collection of some of the finest homes across America and Europe. They’re on the lookout for home critics. So, if you could imagine yourself zipping around from location to location in stunning homes, this one is for you.
BECOME A TOUR GUIDE
If you’re outgoing and friendly, this is perhaps one of the best loves your jobs in the world. Imagine living in a foreign country showing travelers who love to travel around your new home like you. So long as you love to chat and are passionate about the new country or city in which you live, you’re bound to love the job of a tour guide.
This would have to be one of the most prominent jobs for people who love to travel, but it’s also one of the most attainable and enjoyable. Imagine jet-setting around the world, staying a night or two in foreign cities, only to wake up and do it all again.
You’ll have to love people, but most airlines will only expect prior experience in customer service and certification as far as qualifications go. Expect crazy hours and a crazy lifestyle; it’s not as easy as it looks or sounds, but perfect for travel lovers. What’s more, you’ll score heavily discounted flights for you and your family. Win-win!
If you’re an explorer who likes the idea of giving back, WWOOF (World Wide Opportunities on Organic Farms) is perhaps your answer! WWOOF offers travelers a chance to travel in an ethical way that will also involve payment — we’d call that a win-win-win.
THE IMPORT AND EXPORT BUSINESS
Sound elusive? It kind of is. You could import and export anything in today’s society. With globalization always on the up, everyone is looking for the ‘next thing’ to latch onto.
You’ll have to be entrepreneurial and have a never-give-up attitude, but it’s a great excuse to travel for work if you can make it work! A great way I monetized my blog further was by creating and selling merchandise.
WORK ON A CRUISE SHIP
Jobs on cruises are in abundance, but they’re also highly sought after. If you do manage to land a gig, you’ll be delighted to learn it’s precise as it sounds – you’ll make a living traveling the world! As if that doesn’t sound amazing enough, you’ll also receive free meals and accommodation.
WORK AS AN AU PAIR
If you love children, this is the perfect gig for you. It’s a bonus if you speak a second language or want to develop your skills in a second language. As an Au pair, you’ll live with a host family in a foreign country, look after the children, and receive a small salary for your efforts. It’s a great way to experience life in a different country. However, your free time will be minimal.
TEACH YOGA, DANCE INSTRUCTOR JOBS
If you’re passionate and talented at a niche skill like yoga, tango dancing, or anything else you can see there’s an interest in, then why not do something you love and get paid to do it!? Whether it’s learning and teaching yoga in Bali or becoming a dance instructor in Argentina, the opportunities are truly endless.
Let’s get back to basics – one of the most popular jobs for travelers is pretty easy to come by. So long as you have the working visas required, you are almost guaranteed to find a job in a bar somewhere. Leaving home with previous experience will, of course, help but is by no means necessary!
BECOME A SURF OR SKI INSTRUCTOR
Another popular choice for travelers is to take a seasonal job as a surf or ski instructor. Popular destinations include Canada or the French Alps for those who love winter, but if you’re up for a warmer climate, why not consider teaching surf lessons!
BECOME A YACHTIE
Yachties are paid a generous sum of money to work crazy long hours and with crazy demands, but it does indeed sound like an unreal lifestyle to live!
WORK FOR AN INTERNATIONAL HOTEL CHAIN
Often people forget that working abroad can start working at home. If you can land a job in an international hotel chain, there are oodles of opportunities to transfer to other hotels within the company and work while you travel.
Back to basics again – if you’ve got a talent, you can make a living out of just about anything, anywhere. Can you hold a tune? Or have a party trick that is likely to entertain the masses? Busking is one of the simplest ways to make money, though the income can be unpredictable and sometimes dismal.
We live in a pretty exciting digital era – anyone and everyone can make a living online. One of the areas with oodles of potential and scope for employment is website design. It’s as easy as learning to code, being creative, and putting yourself out there! This is an exciting time to start up a small business and offer your skills online – don’t be afraid to give it a shot!
BECOME A TRAVEL AGENT
If you love to travel so much that you can see yourself booking holidays for others, this job is the right one for you! It’s a bonus that you’ll be invited on family trips where you’ll travel for free, as well as receiving heavy discounts for your holidays.
BECOME A BOLLYWOOD FILM STAR
Sounds crazy, huh? It’s surprisingly common to star as a Westerner in a Bollywood film! According to sources, you merely make your way to India, get spotted, and say yes to star in a Bollywood film!
PHOTOGRAPH & FILM TRAVEL JOBS
If you’re talented in the creative department and want to stay on the road full time. The great idea is to pick up a camera, train yourself, perfect your craft, and sell your images/videos online. While it will require an initial small investment, the potential to make this your full-time career is, for most, too good an opportunity to pass up!
WRITE ABOUT TRAVEL
A personal favorite (as a full-time travel blogger), And let me say this straight off the bat – more attainable than you might think!!! I get tones of emails about where to start as a travel blogger. The best piece of advice I can give is to start! We all have to start somewhere.
When I first began travel blogging, I knew I wanted to make it my full-time career, but I had no idea how. So, I just started writing, editing, adjusting my approach, and over time improving the way I write, what I write about.
How I connect with my readers around the world. Someone once told me that it was worth more, in the long run, to work for free at something you love until you get paid to do it, rather than to do something until you love it.
Those words stuck with me. After a few months of writing for free, I was starting to make (small amounts) of money from travel blogging. Over time I have been fortunate enough to make this my full-time career!
But why stop there at travel writing, photography, and videography. You can pretty much freelance anything and travel as a result! In the digital age we live in, it is becoming increasingly common to start up a small company, freelance, and live abroad on the road. Many small companies travel full time and work from coffee shops – it’s some small revolution going on out there!
