Mixing your career with travel
You’ve just got back from a two-week holiday, and though you haven’t even unpacked your bag, you’ve already started planning your next adventure. Sound familiar?
If so, you’ve got a serious case of the travel bug. Changing to a profession that allows you to earn money while travelling may be a good idea if you’re the kind of person who can’t satisfy your craving for travel with only four weeks of vacation time each year. You can combine employment and travel in this way.
Here are some of the best travelling jobs out there where you can enjoy exploring new countries as part of your daily routine.
1.Writing / Blogging
There are numerous methods to generate money as a writer if you have a talent for the written word. Travel blogging (or any sort of blogging) allows you to turn your hobby into a business by writing about your experiences, building an audience, advertising on your blog, or being sponsored by a company. You can also work as a freelance writer, writing for other bloggers or online magazines. This is an excellent method to expand your portfolio, especially if you are just starting out. If you are unsure, you may always take a course to improve your writing and communication abilities before you begin.
2.Allied Health Professional
Did you know that one of the best methods to gain money while travelling is to get an Allied Health qualification? Experienced health care personnel are in high demand all over the world. Australia, for example, is experiencing a severe shortage of Allied Health Professionals, particularly in the aged care and disability sectors. The key requirements are fluency in English, an Allied Health qualification, and at least one year of work experience. Not only is the job incredibly lucrative and fulfilling, but you also have the opportunity to work globally in a variety of diverse possibilities.
This is one of the most common methods of earning money while travelling. It’s a classic, but a nice one. English teachers are more in demand than ever.
Teaching English as a foreign language is frequently regarded as a “backpacker profession,” although it can be extremely demanding, fulfilling, and worthwhile. Although qualifications are not always required, it is preferable to obtain a TEFL or TESOL certificate. A course can be completed online or in a classroom environment and typically lasts 4 weeks. Professional training means you’ll be more confident teaching a class of children or adults, and you’ll have an advantage over competitors who don’t have a certificate.
A web designer, virtual assistants and working with a tour company are other great examples of how to mix in your passion for travelling with your career. Traveling for work is perfect for people who thrive on visiting new locations, enjoy networking and (in some cases) are seeking remote positions.
