If you want a stable job with predictable income, you would go for the first kind. Here at career advice, we shall look for some options from both categories in a list for travelling job:

1. Flight Attendant:

In this role you might able to travel various destinations, depending on the airline. How much time you would get to explore those locations that are a different thing. The Bureau of Labor Statistics mentions that median wage of flight attendants is $48,500.

The bad news is that, projections reveal that there is slower-than-average job growth in future.

2. Commercial Airline Pilot:

If you wish to spend two- or three-day stays in cities around the country or the world, but want a better pay check than a flight attendant, then the career advice is that you need to learn to fly. You can apply for airlines that have routes services, where you wish to go.

The median wage for airline pilots is $105,720 and future job prospective would remain the same.

3. Geologist:

Being a geologist for an oil company, you can travel extensively, around the world where there are oil mines. Similar is true for mining companies. You could be finding gold in Brazil a month and copper in China for the next.

According to the BLS the geoscientists get a median annual wage of $89,780.

Hi Maya,


I would recommend jobs like Pilot, Cabin Crew, Software Engineer, Managers, Trainers especially in the IT companies have multiple options to travel.
Usually in large organisations you get lot of opportunities to travel around the globe especially if you are into sales and marketing and if you are a top performer.
Again it depends on the organization's requirement, if they have an offshore office/site and if they cannot pool talent from their offshore location, then the management usually will consider a top performing employee from their onshore site for their business requirements/training purposes offshore.


International relations or Project Management Office (PMO) are other job profiles which huge organisations have to handle their offshore activities, even Business Development Managers (BDM) often travel around the globe for signing up and to close on multiple offshore deals/projects for their organisations.
All the best Maya for your future endeavors and wish you all success!!!

Simeon’s Answer

You can do international travel with almost any kind of work, but most of them would require you to do a lot of work and research to find a way to make it work. One of the sure-fire ways I know to get into traveling abroad is to make it into a large company with international reach. The ones I am most familiar with are the big 4 accounting firms: KMPG, Deloitte, EY, and PwC. These are large auditing firms with international reach. If you can get an internship with one of these companies, do so. If you are able to land a job with one of them someday, you can work with your career team to work towards getting transferred into another country. Just know that the busy seasons can be long, with many people work 70+ hours a week during busy season, so make sure you know the cost of the opportunity up front.
