Erin’s Answer

Career wise, there are many travel related opportunities for people with an adventurous spirit. Discovering what industry you want to work in is a unique journey of its own.


To draw on my personal experience; I knew I wanted to travel as much as possible in my lifetime so college seemed like a great place to do so with a bit of a safety net in place. I'd recommend researching colleges that have a dedicated study abroad program since they do most of the leg work for you, i.e. researching accommodations, booking the air travel, etc. I went to Northeastern University which has a wonderful study abroad program. Here are some details: http://www.northeastern.edu/studyabroad/. I had a great time immersing myself in another culture and made some great friends while doing so, in fact, upon graduation, I moved from Boston to California with a friend I made on the flight over to Australia!


Nowadays, there are other programs available such as "Gap Year Programs" for teens https://www.teenlife.com/category/gap-year/. I would advise that you research programs online, read reviews and chat with people who have done them to help decide which one is right for you.


Best of luck. I hope you are able to begin your travel adventures in the not too distant future.

I was a consultant at McKinsey & Company for four years, and during that time I traveled and worked in over a dozen countries--some examples include China, Kenya, and the United Kingdom. McKinsey hires people who graduate from selective 4-college year colleges like Harvard, Yale, Stanford. Therefore, for this career, you have to complete 4 years of college, and you also need to attend a top-tier university. It's very competitive, but it's financially and personally rewarding.
