I traveled quite a bit in IT sales. Depending on the territory you cover, you could have the opportunity to travel a lot.
That is a good question. As somebody else answered, accounting and/or business consulting can include a good amount of travel, mostly to offices of clients. If you work at a larger firm, you have higher chances of being asked to travel across the US, and perhaps internationally. When you interview for jobs, be sure to ask your interviewer how much travel is expected, as travel opportunities can vary from one company to the next.
Best of Luck!
Hi Alejandra !
I have been working for the hospitality industry for few years. I can tell you that if you want to find a job that allow you to travel, this field should fit you.
You will easily find opportunities abroad :)
Traveling can make doing any job pretty exciting. I agree with that since that is why I work in the industry that I do today. I am an Instructional Designer, which is one of several training functions that I have held over the years. Training people is a global business. And my role in particular can be done from anywhere there is an internet connection. I would say any job that can be done remotely is an ideal job for travel. This is because you can move around whenever you like and still get a paycheck. Check out some jobs in this article: https://www.entrepreneur.com/article/306578. My job is probably best described in Copywriter. Writing occupations as well as Graphic Designer.
In my role, I am also sometimes able to travel on behalf of the company that I work for. The key here is working for a company that is big enough to send you to locations that you want to go. My last two employers have been large, international companies. This allowed me to have access to many places all around the world to visit. Some of my favorite places include Australia, the Phillippines, England, and Egypt. I supported the creation of training for individuals predominantly in call centers and leadership training.
My job role falls into a larger category of roles in Human Resources. In the article that I mentioned above, there are several HR roles including Instructor and Recruiter.
I hope that has given you some insight into jobs that you may not have considered before.

I am a solution consultant for an international tech company and i travel quite a lot: Inside my sales territory and then international for trainings, meetings etc. I do this since 20 years, and it's still interesting, but you need to consider a couple of things:
-Sometimes you just see an airport and a meeting room...thats it
-You are often alone (Eating alone in a restaurant is not always that much fun..)
-You miss important stuff back home (birthdays, invites, anniversaries, etc)
-You get older...traveling is hectic and can be stressful
So, while travel for work is great fun, it has some "side effects", which should also be considered.
I work in the Hotel Industry as a market coordinator which consists of account management and sales. I travel every month to meet my hotel partners in the various markets I manage.
All the costs are covered by the company, but keep in mind that while traveling for work, you won't necessarily get time to tour or do any leisure activities.
Good luck !
Consulting is what comes to mind when you talk about traveling across multiple backgrounds since your client could be anywhere in the world, and if you are in one of the top consulting firms, the client base is huge and you will have a lot of opportunity to travel. Now, if you choose a career in sales/marketing or certain manufacturing/engineering backgrounds that are product-based, a lot of companies (such as Apple) build source raw materials for their products from all over the world, so there will be a lot of opportunity to travel there as well.
You can work in hospitality and concentrate on hotel life. There are plenty of hotel management companies or hotels that encourage travel. I took the path of account management after going to school for marketing and management. Another path could be travel writing. There are so many magazines or companies looking for bloggers or writers.
A career as an auditor with a public accounting firm requires traveling to our clients. Sometimes our clients are local and other times they can be out of state. As you progress in your career there are opportunities to travel and work abroad depending how global your firm is.
