What type of careers offer many traveling oppurtunities?

Honestly, I do not know what I want to pursue when I am older which makes looking at schools harder since I don't even know what to major in. All I know is that I am passionate about traveling, If I had a job that allowed me to travel all over the globe that would be a dream.

Hey Rachyl,

Another career option that allows you to travel is working for one of the major airlines. A job at Delta, American Airlines, or United will give you the option to fly for free to any of the destinations in their network or even take heavily discounted flights on other airlines. As a former employee at American Airlines, I was able to fly to every continent for free and even got upgraded a few times!

If you enjoy traveling, I'd recommend looking into consulting. If you are analytical and can see yourself enjoying a roll in the business world, consulting is likely a great fit. While consulting as a whole is very broad, there are many different types of consulting you can consider depending upon your interests. Some examples include management consulting, strategy consulting, technology consulting, and forensic consulting. Within each type of consulting, you can often specialize in particular industries. For example, some people are passionate about healthcare and choose to specialize in healthcare within a certain type of consulting, while others may be more interested in telecommunications or commodities. Whether you study business, engineering, foreign languages, science, or even political science, there is likely a consulting role that can fit your skill set. Within the U.S., consultants generally do more domestic travel on a regular basis, but there can also be international travel opportunities, especially as you get promoted to higher levels. Good luck figuring out what you want to study!

Thank you so much. I will definitely look into consulting. rachyl B.

Consider not only jobs that will involve travel for work, but jobs that are remote and flexible enough that you could travel and work digitally from anywhere! (In my opinion, more fun than traveling for work anyway :) ) I'm a freelance graphic designer and planning to travel the world for a year in 2022 while working remote with clients.

If you have any skills that could work for a freelancer or remote role with a company (digitally-based roles like design, marketing, copywriting, accounting, virtual assistant, coding, etc.) work to build up one of these skill-sets that could work well 100% digitally and only apply for remote roles (preferably with flexible hours if you can swing it!) OR consider freelancing for maximum flexibility (thought freelancing requires a bit longer to establish yourself and gain consistency). Especially after 2020, remote roles are more and more common, and as long as you have good internet and can figure out time-zones pretty well, there's no reason you can't travel while you work remote!

Best of luck!
Thank you so much! I never thought of working online but honestly, it does seem to open up a lot of opportunities for travel, so thank you. rachyl B.

This might sound counterintuitive, but I would recommend accounting if you are looking to travel the world. If you are able to get a job with one of the big four accounting firms: PwC, KPMG, Deloitte, or EY, you'll have a great shot at being able to travel the world. If you work with your career team, they can work with you towards the goal of working overseas. If this path interests you, I'd recommend pursuing an internship with these firms and going to their recruiting events. Just know that there can be crazy work hours during busy season, so the work-life balance is commonly a major issue for people with these companies.
Thank you especially for the specifics. I will have to look into it. rachyl B.

I am an occupational therapist. As an occupational therapist, you could work for a travel agency. They offer full time opportunities that cover travel / housing expenses as well as health care benefits. You travel to fill positions as needed. Your flexibility in location is an asset to the agency and contracts that you fill. Good luck if this is your passion.
Thank you, this was very helpful. I will have to look into it. rachyl B.
