Travel is often not as expensive as people think. If you think that travel is expensive and it keeps you from embarking on a journey around the world, then you think wrong. There is always the possibility to travel the world and find work overseas to pay your journey. This post will describe ten jobs that are easy to get for travellers.
1) Use your love for children
Do you love kids? Then use your love (and experience) to find an au-pair job. Usually you will get a room, board and weekly pay check. Good websites to find an au-pair job are Goaupair or Aupairworld.
2) Go harvesting
Even if you are backpacking through Australia or on a road trip through Italy, there are always plenty of harvesting jobs to find. Think about harvesting olives, strawberries, flowers or other fruits and vegetables.
3) Teach English (or another language)
In almost every country in the world, people are willing to learn English and looking for native speakers. When you are not an English native speaker, you can also teach your own native language. In many big international cities, you can find plenty language schools with all kind of languages to learn. In some countries you may need an official certificate to teach a language. If you don’t have this, there are still some other opportunities to earn money by teaching a language, e.g. as a private teacher.
4) Get seasonal work
Find a (summer) job in a bar, restaurant, hotel or on a camping. In the high seasons, tourism companies are always looking for extra (cheap) labour. Try to arrange this kind of job in advance, because when you will go job hopping in the high season, probably all the good jobs are already taken.
5) Work online
If you are handy in web desiging, social media management or any other technological online things, you can always travel around and carry out virtual work for clients. Fiverr and Upwork are good websites to find some virtual work.
6) Work on a cruise ship or yacht
This is a great job to explore the world! Usually the jobs on a cruise ship contain long working hours and a low salary, but since your living costs, insurance costs and food are usually paid by the company, you can save a lot of money. And this, by travelling the world and meeting a lot of people from all over the world. Good websites to find a job on a cruise ship or yacht are Yacrew or The Cew Network.
7) Use your skills
Do you love diving, yoga, playing music or dancing? Do not be shy and use your skills to find an overseas job. Gumtree, Workaway and Helpx are good websites to find all kind of jobs worldwide. You can also go to a destination and just ask around. You will be surprised by how quick you will find a job you like.
8) Be a tour guide
Do you have a lot of knowledge about a city, sight or just love to travel? Use your love for travelling to find a job as a guide. There are often travel agents who are looking for guides or just offer your skills to random tourists at a famous sight.
9) Become a bartender
Almost in every city, there are bars who need a bartender. Of course, in the party destinations or destinations with high tourism seasons, you have a higher chance to find a bartender job. European Bartender School is the biggest- and most professional US bar tending school and provide bartender training and jobs worldwide.
10) Work as a volunteer
Even though these jobs do not pay, you will save money because often you will get a room or board in return. It will keep you longer on the road. Handy websites to find volunteering jobs are Working Abroad , Volunteer International, Grassroots Volunteering or United Nations Volunteers.
