If you love to travel, why not find a job that pays you to do it? Here's four jobs that practically pay you to sight-see:
- Travel agent. Yep, travel agents still exist, and their biggest job perk is free travel. As a travel agent, you can take familiarization trips where airlines, hotels and tour operators provide free transportation, accommodations and activities to educate TAs on travel trends.
- Flight attendant. The hours are long, but the schedules are usually flexible and the layovers can be amazing. The airline pays for the airfare and accommodations, too.
- Geologist. You usually work outside, sometimes in remote locations that require a lot of travel. Plus, the Bureau of Labor Statistics reports the median income for geology jobs is close to $90,000 ($89,780).
- Teaching English. If you speak English as your first language, you can find a job teaching it abroad. The training isn’t long, and the work days average between four and six hours, which leaves you lots of time to explore your surroundings.
