Do you wish you could travel the world but need the income from your job to support your adventures? One of the silver linings of the pandemic is the emphasis on remote work – and it appears to be sticking. A recent Gallup poll showed that 45% of workers are at least partially remote. That number jumps to 67% for white-collar office jobs.
While that’s great news for many people, some types of work lend themselves more to travel jobs than others. For example, even if you work remotely now, you may be tied to set work hours or need a particular workstation setup; you can’t just throw a laptop in a backpack and hit the road. Here is a list of the 12 best travel jobs for those looking to jet-set worldwide.
When you picture the ideal travel job, what comes to mind? Is it sitting in a coffee shop in Italy with your laptop or lying on the beach with just a cell phone in hand? Maybe it involves working in the local community to get a more authentic experience of the day-to-day life of those around you.
A virtual assistant may be the quintessential digital nomad job. In this role, you could offer a broad range of services, such as: – Virtual bookkeeping – Social media management – Customer service – Email and calendar management – Graphic design – and many more
If you love to travel, why not make it your job to document your experiences and share them with others? For example, as a travel blogger, you could research the best places to visit in a particular city or country and share your tips as you travel.
Remote work is trending across many careers that used to be entirely in-person. While you have a better chance of working remotely as a financial analyst than a plumber, if you’re in the right field, you can quickly turn your work-from-home job into a work-from-anywhere job.
