When one thinks of travel, it rarely crosses the minds of average individuals to associate it with work. In fact, travel is often more associated with vacation instead of profession. But there are top 5 jobs which reveal the reality of having such careers.
It is important to take note, however, that people who travel a lot for work may have a different idea of what a vacation is. People who crave to book a flight to some unfamiliar place should take a closer look at these top 5 jobs.
An article published by U-Loop categorized humanitarian movements as one of the noblest and most prestigious travel jobs around. Working to better the lives of areas in the world stricken by war and/or poverty requires highly dedicated professionals. Whether a person is an accomplished surgeon representing Doctors Without Borders or one of the logistical staff of the Peace Corps, this kind of job requires prolonged stay overseas.
Another career that requires traveling is music tours. Whether the person is a performer, a stylist or part of the overall live concert logistics, this job entails moving from town to town (or state to state for huge affairs).
Writing & Journalism
Whether a person covers another exclusive story in Mosul (Iraq) for Al Jazeera, or joins a team of National Geographic explorers to the remote settlements of Sahara, writing and journalism entails traveling across an off-beat track. Unfortunately, on-site accommodations are stripped of any luxury.
With most of the important events held at countryside venues, event coordinators enjoy a fractional amount of pleasure organizing weddings, birthdays and other key celebrations. It is one of the many travel jobs listed by an article featured in Pay Scale.
Flight & Cruise Service
Since 2013, travel industries provide middle-class salaries and luxurious setting for flight and cruise servicemen. An article published by Jobs & Hire describes how these opportunities are practically impossible to outsource overseas.
