The best jobs for people who love to travel
Do you suffer from extreme wanderlust, but feel as if your job may be holding you back?
You're not alone. According to a survey conducted by Skift, nearly 42 percent of Americans said they didn't take a single vacation day during 2014. For adult Americans who received at least 10 vacation days, the survey showed only 13 percent of them were able to afford to actually use all of their days off to travel.
Vacations, however, are much needed. the article Current Directions in Psychological Science, written by Sabine Sonnentag of the University of Mannheim, says, "Research in organizational psychology and related fields has identified recovery from work as an important mechanism that explains how employees can stay energetic, engaged, and healthy, even when facing high job demands."
While taking a vacation is an excellent way to mentally and physically decompress from work, the relaxing effects, unfortunately, don't last.
But what if they could?
Careers in the travel industry are probably the first that come to mind, but with workplace culture shifting to attract young talent, telecommuting and jobs that allow you to travel frequently are on the rise.
If traveling the world is a goal you'd like to mark off your bucket list, consider these professions that'll give you the opportunity to do so.
