If you are fresh out of college and trying to decide what type of career you want, or are just ready for a career change a little later in life, you are probably finding yourself doing a lot of thinking about what types of jobs may be right for you. You should choose something where you will be utilizing your skills and strengths, but also something you think you might enjoy. Many jobs require a lot of travel, and that type of lifestyle is certainly not for everyone. But if you love to travel and wouldn’t mind doing it for work, here are 3 potential careers you may want to consider.
Social Media Management
A career in social media management entails much more than just sitting at home, staring at your phone, and posting content. You also have to go out and get and push content to increase brand awareness. Depending on what type of businesses you are working for, you may have a very broad area to cover. You may have to travel in order to take photos and form other content for their social media accounts. So if you are social media savvy and also enjoy a bit of travel, you may want to consider this as a career!
This one is likely one of the more obvious ones on this list, but with good reason. Becoming a flight attendant or pilot is one of the best career choices for someone who likes to travel! Of course, the schedule can also be quite grueling, and you may not get to stay in each place for long. But if you love flying and getting a chance to explore new places (and lots of airports) a little bit, this could be the perfect option for you.
Travel is not a part of all sales jobs, but many do require it. Especially if you are a little higher up at your company, you may be in charge of a specific region which will require travel not just by plane but by car as well. You might also have to attend sales conferences, sometimes all the way across the country or even nationally. Be prepared for this, but if you love travel, a sales position may be just the right fit for you!
Finding a career that fits well with your lifestyle and that you are also good at and like to do can be extremely difficult. Try narrowing down your list of possible careers by assessing your strengths, weaknesses, likes and dislikes. If you’ve realized that travel is one of the things you really like, hopefully this list will help you to discover your new career.
