What kind of jobs will allow me to travel?
I just started a position within consulting in October of 2017 and would recommend this profession if you enjoy traveling frequently and solving complex business problems.
The typical week for a consultant consists of flying to the client site on Monday morning and returning to your home office on Thursday evening. There are also projects which carry a shorter duration, in which the consultant only spends several days on the client site. Projects can last anywhere between a day and several years. Working as a consultant allows you to expand your experiences and work with clients across different industries.
Another suitable option could be working in a certain industry for a global firm and requesting a placement abroad. This will grow your global acumen and allow you to return to the United States with a fresh perspective and a deeper knowledge of the company you work for. Once you have established yourself as a strong employee, do not hesitate to expand your experiences by pushing for a rotation abroad. This will prove to be super useful as you continue your career!
Best of luck!
You could go to work in the travel business as a guide, agent or worker in the aircraft field. Or you could pursue a degree in an area that would allow you to teach, write or translate if you are bilingual or know several languages. Or you could apply for work in another country and travel on your off-time. So much depends upon your area of interest, your major and your capabilities. Speak to those in the fields you are interested in and ask them what possibilities they could suggest that you pursue.
Best of luck,
There are many traditional jobs out there that involves traveling such as: traveling nurse, pilot, flight attendant, truck driver, etc. etc. I like Shayne's answer because his role as a consultant is not necessarily in the travel industry but he does travel.
