STEM jobs are great jobs for travel depending on who you work for.
I am in Learning and Development and there are a lot of jobs within this field where travel is a part of the job. I am an Instructional Designer, so I do not travel as much as my fellow instructors. In my role, I would travel around the world to do audience and job analysis as a precursor to creating training. I have traveled to many different countries, working for various industries. It is also a great job for working from home and that makes it great to work from anywhere.
I also like working for companies that are large and with international impacts, because the world becomes your travel landscape. When I worked with an online travel company, I went to 10 new countries that I had not visited before including Australia, the Philippines, Malaysia, Egypt, Germany, England, and the Netherlands. If you speak a second language, any language, you increase your chances of being tagged for travel over those who only speak English.
You can make friends all over the world, get to know the cultures around the world and experience local life, and look at the world and see the earth.
I started getting heavily into photography and hiking which as you can imagine works very well when partnered with travel. I've moved away from my home of Pennsylvania to the White Mountains of New Hamsphire and know that I'll never move back. My next move is to Montana to be near Glacier National Park and Yellowstone. I'll be bringing my laptop out to Yesomite later this year in case I decide to extend my stay longer than expected.
It's awesome now because you don't necessarily need to have travelling imbedded in your occupation now that work from home is available. Some things I have noticed in my first year of traveling:
1 - Hold yourself accountable! It is very easy for some to get distracted at home. Know this and make an agreement with yourself that work doesn't change. It is a privilege to have this opportunity so work hard!
2 - Find an Office! Not necessarily an actual office space away from home, but a dedicated room in which you can shut the door behind you when you arrive and get to business and more importantly shut down and separate from when you are done.
3 - Network! If you are quiet this is even more essential. In the office you naturally get exposed to people when getting coffee, participating in workshops, working, etc. At home you have to proactively seek this opportunities out. Schedule "coffee times", turn on your video, proactively pick up the phone instead of using email. Don't hide behind that screen!
4 - Travel! Do exactly what you told yourself you were going to do. Don't move and just become a hermit in your home office working 24/7. Pick a beautiful place of whatever country of your choosing and explore. Take advantage of today :)
If you hold yourself accountable, working remotely is not a roadblock to one's career - not in today's age. COVID has shown that exact thing play out and the need for highly qualified leaders who can work remote is only going to grow.
World travel was one of my life goals and I been to 37 different countries. Sometimes I stayed 2 - 3 weeks in one city to enjoy their lifestyle, and tried to meet a lot of local people. I definitely recommend you try to do that, and I believe that may bring a great change in your life including the perspective of life.
