8 Jobs for People Who Love to Travel

See the World While You Work

Unless you’ve saved up a very large travel fund, you likely have to work in order to take a vacation. But what if you could work while taking a vacation? Today, there are an array of jobs that let you do just that – work while you travel. Here are some favorites from our PHL Airport parking company:


Alcohol is like a universal language, so knowing how to pour drinks can really come in handy if you want to travel the world. Bartending jobs are fairly easy to find no matter where you are, especially if you have experience. But remember – being familiar with the language is a big part of the job.

Event Planner

When you work for a large event planning company, you can get the chance to experience major events like the Olympics, the World’s Fair (or Expo, as it’s now called), presidential happenings, and other major events. Because planning for these events takes so much work, the companies in charge usually hire a lot of people, so you have a good shot at landing an event planning job as long as you have some experience.

English Teacher

There are many places in the world with schools that teach English as a second language. If you’re fluent in another language (or even familiar with one), you can use your English-speaking skills to travel the world and teach others the ins and outs of the language.

Tour Guide

If you’re outgoing, friendly, and work well with people, becoming an international tour guide can pay off. Once you settle down in a new place and learn the secrets of the area, you can pretty easily get a job as a tour guide so you can share everything you know with other travel lovers. Once you’ve exhausted your time in one place, just head to another and repeat the process!


Just like bartending, serving can be done around the world as long as you’re familiar with the language. You’ll find restaurants all over the place, which means there’s never a shortage of serving jobs.

Flight Attendant

When you think of jobs that let you travel the world, flight attendant is probably one of the first ones that come to mind. By joining an airline team that travels all over the place, you’ll have easy access to a wide variety of locations to experience. Keep in mind, however, if you’re a beginner, you’ll likely stay in a more local section of the country for a little while before jet-setting off to other places.


Freelance work lets you work from home and the best part is, home can be anywhere. Whether you’re a freelance writer, freelance photographer, freelance website designer, or working in another industry, you’ll have the opportunity to live virtually wherever you’d like and be able to complete your work.

Cruise Ship Worker

With so many different cruise destinations available these days, there are plenty of opportunities to see the world when you work for a cruise liner. And best of all, there’s a wide variety of jobs that need filling on a cruise, from server to musician to entertainer and more. This means you’re likely to find something you’re good at.
