John’s Answer

Jessica, If you’re looking for a job that lets you travel the world, think about the skills and interests you have which can be applied to these different industries. If you aren’t looking to develop those or get a new certification, do a Google search for remote work. There are resources like FlexJobs and Remote.com that have companies open to different types of arrangements for freelancers, contractors and full-time remote positions.

TEACHING ENGLISH ABROAD – $30,000
One of the most popular jobs that pay you to travel is English Teacher. Almost every country in the world is looking for English teachers, and in some places, they’re DESPERATE for them. A large portion of these jobs require some sort of TEFL (Teaching English as a Foreign Language) certification from a reputable organization, but this can even be done online.

AU PAIR – $44,250
Do you only have a summer to dip your toes in the international waters? Maybe being an au pair is right for you. An au pair is an international nanny that typically lives with a family to take care of their kids. There are countless websites that help find potential matches between families and budding au pairs, depending on things like availability, experience, and country preferences. Payments can range from just room and board to flights and a salary being included.

CRUISE DIRECTOR – $56,000
If your idea of traveling is less about solid ground and more about the open sea, joining a cruise ship staff may be the perfect option for you. There are countless types of jobs dealing with the cruise ship industry, so, if you don’t get seasick, there’s a good chance you can find a position that suits your fancy. If you’re one of the lucky ones who has a gift for performance, maybe you can get a musical gig; if you’re into cooking, well, the guests need to eat!

TRAVEL WRITER – $70,76
The most obvious of the traveling jobs, people assume that travel writers are barely scraping by. But if you’re scrappy and good at what you do, there’s a never-ending Rolodex of outlets to pitch and bylines to snag. You can be a full-time salaried contributor to one website, magazine, or newspaper, but the majority of writers freelance full-time for a variety of publications so they can set their own schedule and be their own boss.

TRAVEL NURSE – $86,500
If you’re on the nursing track, you should consider being a travel nurse, as it’s one of the top jobs that pay you to travel. These positions are applicable to a wide variety of health-care professionals and include traveling as a way to help with the international nursing shortage. Assignments can range from a short span to multiple years, so they work for nursing students or a certified nurse. Compensation varies and many times housing is provided by the agency.

AIRLINE PILOT – $133,000
Perhaps one of the most obvious jobs that requires travel is the person flying the plane. Commercial pilots do have variable and rigorous schedules and despite much time off, they often have overnight layovers that allow them to explore the city they’re stopped in. Private pilots do have significantly more flexibility. Another perk: This so-called working-class job pays well.

There are plenty of exciting careers to be had in a variety of interest areas Jessica. Think about what would make a job exciting to you. Do you have the skills you need to fulfill your ambitions?

Hope this was Helpful Jesica


Thank You Dexter for your Continued Support. The more we praise and celebrate life, the more there is in life to celebrate. John Frick

Sydnie’s Answer

Hi Jessica,

There are a ton of careers now that will allow you to travel and work at the same time.

Digital marketing and publishing roles such as digital marketing, copy writing or graphic design allow you to work where ever you are with a laptop and internet connection.

If you are looking for careers that involve a lot of travel, some of those are flight attendant, cruise ship worker, any type of consultant who offers services that are not location specific, photographer, travel writer, or truck drivers.
