101 Ways for the Traveler to Work Abroad
Roadjunky, Posted Oct 01, 2006
I don't know what a mojito is but I'll just say this is how it's made back home.
The number of ways to work and travel are infinite but we only got as far as 101 travel jobs to inspire you… quit stalling and get out there.
Why would you want to work abroad? Well, you may be in one of the following categories:
1. You can’t afford to go travelling.
2. You want to know a culture from the inside, through participation rather than just being a spectator.
3. You want to push your boundaries and discover new sides to yourself through a challenge overseas.
4. Or maybe you just want to make some money and have a good time.
All of which leaves us asking why wouldn’t you want to go and work abroad? There are plenty of options to choose from – you can jump right into the 101 ways to work abroad by clicking on any of the links:
Hospitality Jobs – Business Jobs – Labor Jobs – Intellectual Jobs – Skilled Jobs – Artistic Jobs – Underground Jobs
Can I do it? Of course!
The main excuse people give for staying home is that they’ve managed to tie themselves down with a thousand real or imagined responsibilities – the job, the relationship, the dog, the chess club – none of which they could dream of leaving behind.
Other people are simply too afraid to take their chances looking for a job overseas. Their current job might be boring but at least it’s safe. The idea of facing a foreign language and culture in the quest to make a buck is altogether too much.
Still others would like to find a job abroad but just have no idea of how to start. The world seems a pretty daunting place from afar and few travelers want to head off without a steady budget and a promising interview awaiting them at the very least.
Yet this world is still full of opportunity for the talented, the hard-working, the creative, the brave or simply the lucky. Surely you belong to at least one of those five groups? Anyway, Road Junky is so sick of travelers whinging about not having enough cash to get on the road that we’ve put together a list of job ideas, contacts and opportunities to work abroad.
And if you still can’t find work then there’s nothing to do but admit you’re a lazy bastard…
