Travel Wisdom

Last Updated on: Mar 7, 2019 

Depending on the type of job you work, there are usually job perks. Some of those job perks include discounts at certain companies, free meals a couple of times per month, and even free memberships to certain clubs, but there is one particular job perk that a lot of working individuals would enjoy the most. Do you know what that job perk is? It’s the ability to work remotely!

More and more companies are creating positions where employees can get their work done from wherever they are as long as they are connected to a fast and reliable internet connection. In fact, a study conducted by one of the leading IT service companies revealed that 74% of their employees would actually quit their current job to work for a company that allowed them to work remotely.

Why Work Remotely?

If you’re a true “wanderluster,” then you know how important traveling is, but one thing that is deeply rooted with traveling is money. You have to have money in order to travel and really enjoy your travels. The only solution to merging the two extremes together is to find a job that allows you to travel and make money while doing it! That means you need a job that allows you to work remotely and get paid well!

Working remotely allows for more travel time and family time, more flexibility of your schedule, and a happier work environment among employees. Forbes.com states that FlexJobs is a great source for people to utilize when looking for positions that allow them to earn exceptional income and work from wherever they choose. So whether you’re in Bora Bora or Jamaica, doing your work in front of crystal blue waters beat a cubicle any day!

How Soon Can You Start?

Whether you want to travel and work full-time or work part-time, there is a remote job out there for you… you just have to see what options are out there for you! Take a look at some of the top remote jobs that allow you the freedom to be wherever you want and make a nice of change doing it!

Web/Graphic Designer

Whether you’re with a company or working freelance as a web designer, your work is solely based online, meaning you can do this type of work anywhere! Now, a web designer is not an easy job so if you have a background in this type of work or at least a technology background, you can go very far… literally and figuratively!

Freelance Writer

Whether you’re a ghostwriter or a copywriter, there are several opportunities for freelance writers if you take the time to look for them. There are different apps and groups where writers can unite and apply to different writing jobs. The key to this particular market is to produce quality content and consistency.

Online Teacher

A lot of colleges and universities are now offering online courses that are more accommodating for non-traditional students. With the classes being offered online, that would allow you, as a teacher, to create lesson plans, set up automated assignment posts, and engage with students via online discussion boards… you can do all of this without setting foot inside a classroom!

Customer Service Representative or Manager

How many times have you been on a website and saw a box pop up saying “start a live chat for assistance” or “what can I help you with?” These days, you see this little box pop up all the time and chances are, the person available to chat live with you is someone who works remotely. An ideal person for this type of position is someone who has a background in marketing, customer service, retail, or communications.

Your Options are Endless, So Consider This…

Let’s say you’ve traveled all across the globe for a year straight and are now ready to settle down from your travels for a couple of months and then get right back to it. Well, as a wanderlust, you’re not anywhere near ready to make anywhere your forever home, so have you ever thought about renting an apartment to be more accommodating to your traveling lifestyle?
