Graduating college is already traumatic enough, and the real world’s post graduation depression can hit even harder if you’re not sure what you want to do for a career.
This is a list of jobs that have potential for international travel, just to get your gears turning and ideas flowing.
Tips for finding jobs that travel
1. Look for jobs that can be done anywhere/are basic societal functions. For example, everyone all around the world will always need doctors, nurses, and veterinarians. You can bet there are travel positions with these, or at least world-wide sites you could travel between and work there. A common one is travel nursing. Any hospitality jobs usually can have sites worldwide that you can travel between.
2. PTOs that can be done privately. Celebrity hair stylist, make up artist, personal trainer, etc. come to mind.
3. PTOs that can be done online. Social media management, analytics, SEO strategist, software development, website development, etc. only need a computer and wi-fi connection to be done. They afford you the freedom and flexibility to be able to travel.
4. Even if you can’t find a job with inherent travel, you can always negotiate for paid time off (PTO). As a recent graduate it’s scary to start having demands when you haven’t even gotten your first job, but I did it and so can you.
