#economics My name is Deborah and I like warm places. I am a people person, so I would like to travel around the world and learn different cultures. When I go to college I want to major in business so I can take over the corrupt DCFS system as well as build a better place for orphans.

Hi Deborah,

First of all its very sad to see how DCFS failed to protect many kids! Its really very saddening to know about it. But its not just DCFS but many such organisations exists in every country around the world, be its US, EMEA, or Asian countries.

But if you really care about these and want to create an impact in this field then you need to be strong, knowledgeable and powerful.
If you want to better the lives of these less-privileged kids then.

1) Become a graduate in Child Welfare Studies, or even Masters so that you can get a good placement and position to work with these Social Service organisations or big NGOs very closely enough to make any changes. This will also fulfill your other dream of traveling places and learn different cultures. (even i share and live the same dream as you :-) )

2) Study Law and secure your license to practice in your state. You can join NGO in their legal dept to battle many disputes and unruly systems against kids. This can be also a travel job as you may be deputed to states that needs your legal advice.

3) I am not sure if you are familiar with CSR initiatives (Corporate Social Responsibility), here the large organizations aims to contribute to societal goals of a philanthropic, activist, or charitable nature by engaging in or support volunteering activities. So you can have a spot here too! Look for jobs in CSR dept as Sustainability and Social Responsibility Manager / Program Manager or Co-ordinator. While studying you can do your internship in CSR dept also to understand how it works. Well this job will also take you to places, but not immediately as it requires some experience of 5-6 years before you start traveling places or get accepted for other states job or abroad jobs.

So Deborah, if bringing smiles to these kids is your ultimate goal then choose the best path that is aligned to your personality and study accordingly to become someone stronger to stand beside them.

Hope this note helps you, all the very best and may all your dreams come true.

All the very best.
Suddho

Hi Deb


There are many jobs that could take you to the other side of the world with just one call. If you'd like to start off in a private sector first, you can consider for example, a position at an airline or hotel. And it could be any department within the company. There are positions for selecting hotels for crews of the airline that requires traveling (all the time!) and you can engage yourself in company's CSR and charity work as a stepping stone before moving onto a NGO. A hospitality group also allows you to be transferred or to be stationed outside your home country flexibly.

Hi Deborah,

I admire your passion in wanting to change the corruption in DCFS!

On the question about what kind of work allows you to travel - business / auditing / consultation is a career that enables one to travel a lot. These are universal skills that can be transferred to any country, so once you have the relevant skill sets, you can work literally anywhere in the world. I started my career with a Chartered Accountant certification, but this certification has allowed me to work in America, Europe and Asia (since accounting standards are mostly and generally acceptable globally, you can transfer the knowledge and skills to almost anywhere in the world - if you are interested in working in a new country every few years. Or you can also travel to other locations for few weeks for a specific assignment.

Hi Deborah ,

I just skip the last question you asked on how can you take over the corrupt DCFS system because I have no idea what that is .

But in my personal experience on how can travel around the world and still getting pay during your wonderful adventure period , you can be a photographer ( I'm a 3 years experience photographer) or be a digital nomad , such as copywriter , digital marketing , blogging or programmer ,
Digital nomad jobs are basically any professions or jobs that can be combined with traveling aka jobs that can be done while traveling. Getting a digital nomad job is basically being able to work from anywhere while traveling. You can either look for online gigs as a freelancer or start working full-time or part-time for a company that allows you to work remotely.And for beginners , Virtual assistant, data entry and transcribing are considered as the easiest digital nomad jobs for beginners that you can start with just basic “online” skills. Virtual assistant is definitely the best option because it allows you to learn some new skills and progress with your digital nomad career.

Hi Deborah,

Suddhasattwa’s answer above about DCFS and your passion for protecting children is fantastic - I wouldn't change a thing, so let me answer your other question a bit!

A few careers that allow you to travel around the world:
- You mentioned majoring in business. Consulting work is a great career for traveling, and if you work for larger or highly specialized consulting firms, you are even more likely to travel with them
- Your philanthropic nature would also lend itself well to spending some time in the Peace Corps
- Journalists and travel writers also get lovely travel opportunities, but they are both careers in which your assignments dictate what you work on and where you get to work on it
- Lastly, remote work is becoming ever more popular (even before COVID19). Many companies are switching to be completely remote, while others are expanding their flexibility about remote employees. You would be surprised at the plethora of jobs you can do from wherever you want to be - you could get your CPA and be an accountant remotely while traveling the world! I expect this to become more and more prevalent.

Best of luck!
Erica

Business professionals often have to travel to meet new and existing clients or to attend conferences or close sales deals.
