Hi Cassidy,

In my experience, even during COVID, being a corporate training is a great job for travel. It depends on the travel that you are looking for. Most of the jobs that I know of limit travel throughout the United States. If you are looking for international travel, you would want to work for a company with an international footprint. Your challenge with this career is being very good at your job and then being very good at being independent. Being a traveling trainer can often feel like being self employed. That means you have to have good time management and communication skills. You have to be able to be alone for long periods of time and comfortable making your own way. For many, it is a job that is done when you have started a family, although it is not impossible with a family. Travel just means that you can miss important events that are happening at home.

Hi, if you love to travel, you can consider to some careers related to travel, e.g. Commercial Airlines pilot, Flight Attendants, Travel Consultant, Travel Guide, Travel Journalist, Travel KOL, etc.
However, some of these careers need professional qualification or complete training, e.g. Pilot, Flight Attendants, etc.
On the other hand, there are majors in the colleges that related to Travel, e.g. Hotel & Tourism Management, Hospitality Management, etc.
There is a wide spectrum careers that are related to travel. I suggest you better to explore more on the careers that you are interested on and also can discuss with the career counsellor in school to determine which direction you would like to go.
Hope this helps. Good Luck!

Joshua’s Answer

Network Engineering, Mobile Telephony Engineer and Transmission Engineer travel a lot around the world, odds to be working in multi-national companies (Cisco, Ericsson, Nokia) are high, therefore, also you have to be prepared for multicultural environments, even though English is the de-facto language for this, knowing additional ones come in handy

Amanda’s Answer

Hi Cassidy - that's great that you are interested in traveling for your work. Here are a few questions for you to consider, which could help direct which career path you may want to pursue:

1. What's holding you back from achieving your goal of being a detective?
2. What type of coursework are you interested in?
3. Do you want to travel on a regular basis, or every now and then?
4. Are you interested in traveling locally, or globally?
5. Is traveling the be all end all for finding a job?

I want to echo the previous post that client services / client facing careers provide for opportunities to travel; consulting in realms of management, operations, IT, strategy, HR, technology, financial, among others.

Kim’s Answer

In addition to the suggestions above, most jobs in a client facing role will require you to travel. Jobs like Client Success Manager, Account Manager, Sales generally require you to meet onsite with your clients once per quarter. I am an Account Director myself and have been traveling for the majority of my career to new and interesting places (depending on where your clients are).
