What kind of careers would allow me to travel internationally on business?
I love to travel, learn new languages, and experience other cultures. I have searched for jobs that would involve regular travel but am having a hard time finding a degree program that would open up such opportunities and allow financial stability. #travel #international #international-affairs #culture
Eleni - in addition to employment opportunities with the US Government, there are many options for someone interested in international travel. Some people enjoy working with international humanitarian groups like International Rescue Committee (IRC) where the focus is serving vulnerable groups (rather than US policy) or with the United Nations and its many areas of humanitarian and international administration responsibilities. There are also great options in the US with organizations like the Red Cross or other groups like the Gates Foundation if you are interested in public health. Finally, others like to apply international skills to working with large corporations developing projects in Europe (did you know groups like eBay have European offices?) or other businesses operating in emerging markets. There are so many things to consider. Enjoy exploring your many options!
Look at State Department careers. The Foreign Service (which also covers Commerce, Agriculture, and USAID) will require you to live overseas. But Civil Service positions at State will have travel opportunities even though you will be based in DC.
