Many employees would prefer the excitement of seeing new locations and countries while they work in a cramped office for long hours every day. Fortunately there are jobs that allow you to see the world like travel nursing, film production work or working remotely. Finding the right job that allows you to travel can be like enjoying a lengthy paid holiday.

Tour guide

Being a tour guide is the perfect profession for a travel enthusiast as it allows you to see beautiful locations whilst expressing your admiration of the place. Guides can work on behalf of a town, city, country or even a whole continent and there are different companies looking for potential guides with extensive knowledge of the location they are trying to work for.

Cruise jobs

Captain, entertainer, casino worker, bartender or housekeeper – you name it, cruise ships need it. Any of these jobs allow workers to see new exotic locations like the Bahamans or Athens whilst navigating the oceans and seas in luxury. Accommodation and food is provided for cruise employees and turnover is usually high for jobs. Crystal Cruises, Princess Cruises and Royal Caribbean are just a few of the companies who are always hiring.

Airline industry

Much like working on a cruise ship, working in the airline industry is obviously very travel-oriented. The fantasy is to become a pilot but the reality is that it takes a lot of knowledge, hard work and experience before you can be qualified. Working as a steward or stewardess is always eventful and enjoyable as you get to interact with different kinds of people and you never know what is going to happen from flight to flight.

Travel writer

Travel writing is fun but requires a high work ethic and long hours to make a lot of money within the field. Many publications and blogs look for travel freelancers and one of the perks is that you receive an all-expense paid trip to aid your work. Don’t be dissuaded by thinking that you definitely require a related degree or qualification in order to be a travel writer: Though there are many employers who will look highly upon a journalistic education, you can also get far in the industry with a proven flair for writing and entrepreneurial skills.

Au pair

If you are a younger person, say a recent graduate looking for a travel opportunity, then becoming an au pair abroad is a good occupation for you. The job requires that you know first aid, have good child care or hospitality references and know how to speak the language of the country you will work in. For your work you will receive a wage, food and accommodation with your chosen family and language classes to better your communication skills.
