Careers You Can Take on the Road

Who says you have to be tied down to living in just one location because of your job? With the right strategy, you can get the right education and skill set that will give you the chance to explore the world and live and work anywhere you want. To get started, check out a few careers, listed below, that will let you take your life on the road.


A Career in Music

Whether you want to be a traveling musician or a tour manager who helps a band gain popularity by playing shows across the country and around the world, a career in music could be your ticket to an exciting way of life. You could even consider getting your online master of music in music education through an online MMME program like the one offered by Rutgers Online so that you can teach music from remote locations. Now that’s music to our ears!

Travel and Write About It

A travel writer is paid to travel and to—you guessed it—write about it! There are countless travel publications and websites that will give you the opportunity to use the beauty of the written word to let others know about some of the most amazing and unique places on the planet.

Become a Yoga Instructor

Have you seen all of those photos of yoga instructors on social media? They’re often seen posing in exotic locations around the world, meeting new students everywhere they go, and teaching at yoga and meditation retreats. If you love the yoga lifestyle, consider becoming an instructor. You will need to work at making a name for yourself—and social media can certainly help in that regard—but once you do, you can start hosting your own retreats in beautiful places like Costa Rica and Bali.





Design Online

Another great career choice for those who are creative and who want to travel or who want to have the freedom to live in many different places is web design and development. Even app developers can find a lot of lucrative opportunities to use their unique skills while working with clients of all sizes. Whether you need to design a new website from scratch for a brand new startup or you’re able to program a stellar mobile app for a well-known corporation, designing online can be fun and really let your creative juices flow.

Help Others Be Healthy

If you want to work in the medical field but staying in one location isn’t your cup of tea, consider becoming a traveling nurse. Whether you’re a registered nurse, an occupational therapist, a nurse practitioner, or anything else related to nursing and medicine, you can find opportunities that are either short-term or long-term and will give you the chance to live someplace new all the time.

As you can see, there are so many different industries that are hiring professionals to work from remote places, and there are a lot of opportunities for those who love to travel as much as possible. So, go ahead and make your next dream adventure a reality, all while earning your living!
