So you guys, I just got featured on Helen Harris’ LinkedIn Newsfeed! This will mark my seventeenth time being featured as part of a LinkedIn News post, and second of the brand new Get Ahead by LinkedIn News series. Here’s to more in 2022!
Please check out this fantastic article by LinkedIn as part of their new Get Ahead by LinkedIn News Job Search & Careers editorials from Helen Harris with our president, Matt Warzel, as a contributor – Jobs for People Who Love To Travel
Set the Stage for Your Traveling Job Success
But before you board the plane, Matt Warzel, CPRW, CIR, career coach and resume writer advises that you ensure success by making sure you are prepared financially and professionally.
“If you are a job seeker who is interested in travel, first and foremost, set yourself up for success by making sure you have the right documents in place,” said Warzel. “This includes making sure that you have the right marketing documents in place, such as your resume, your LinkedIn profile and generally ensuring that you have the best value offerings ready for the audience that you’re trying to attract.”
When it comes to budgeting, Warzel recommends utilizing whatever apps you find easiest and helpful, such as PocketGuard and Mint. However, he additionally notes that a basic spreadsheet works great as well.
“Make sure that you know what the necessities are, and then try to have that little bit of a gap that you can use for leisure,” said Warzel. “Just breaking down what your budget is every day for meals, lodging and transportation — that’s critical to make sure you aren’t dipping into the overall spending budget for how long you want to travel.”
What Jobs Are Best for Travel?
While the list of travel jobs is ongoing, Warzel notes an upward trend in the following fields:
- Travel blogger
- Cruise lines
- Airline workers
- Virtual admins
“Since the pandemic, remote work is on the forefront,” said Warzel. “With that being said, recruiters have a ton of work-from-home roles to fill — and you can do that from anywhere. You just need to be able to talk on the phone, hold Zoom meetings and answer emails.”
Likewise, the travel industry has been gradually opening back up. After two years of little-to-no travel, people are hopping on planes and cruise lines now more than ever.
If you want to turn your current career into a travel job lifestyle — or switch careers and try something new — you can do so by first taking Warzel’s advice: Carefully plan and set yourself up for success. Armed with your career plan and budget, you will be ready to take off into a world of adventure and career success.
