You weren’t born to live in the same city, same country, doing the same 9 to 5 job, living a monotonous life.
If you want to travel and work at the same time, what’s holding you back?
Let me guess, you don’t speak the same language of where you wish to live and work, you come from a diversified background with different religion and values, or maybe because you have no clue as to where to start looking for the best jobs or business ideas, when it comes to working overseas, if that’s the case, this post is for you!
So, here’s my take on the best expat jobs that will help you to travel the world.
1. Teach English
The very first expat job I would like to suggest to you is teaching English! Since English is an international language, it can be taught all over the world.
And the best part is there are so many ways through which one can teach English abroad, you just need to know where to start.
There are many Asian countries that pay really well to teach English, for instance, South Korea, Japan or China are among those countries, which even offer attractive packages that include free flights and bonuses if you finish the program successfully.
If you are active on social media and have some fan following, you can even teach English online, you can give online classes on Skype or start a YouTube channel, too. And both these can be done while you are on the go, yes you can travel the world while teaching English, all you need is a university degree!
2. Au Pair/Nanny
Being a nanny or Au Pair is another common expat job, that you may consider while thinking to move to another country.
You can apply through agencies that will place you with a family as per your requirements, or you can also search for a job through different public forums or job posting sites.
As far as visas are concerned, you will need to check with each country’s particular visa requirements. However, the best approach would be to do a job under a working holiday visa.
With freelancing there’s no restriction for you to stick to a place, you can literally work from any part of the world, all you need to is a laptop and an internet connection to getting started.
For offering freelancing services, you need to register with freelancing websites such as Upwork, Guru, and Fiverr.
Create a portfolio, write an attractive job description and you are good to go!
Freelancing is the most suitable expat job that allows you to travel the world while working.
You could offer your freelancing services as a,
- Virtual Assistant (VA)
- Content writer
- Travel and blog writer
- Video editor/creator
- A translator, in various web projects like web design or social media,
- Work as a website designer or a developer.
- Video shooter/photographer.
Basically anything, the possibilities are endless! You just need to choose a niche that matches your interest or something you are passionate about.
Many people are running their own startups successfully, instead of working for others; they are acting as their own boss.
And guess what you could do the same, if you are fond of traveling, you can successfully run a travel blog or Vlog for the same.
You can earn big bucks with the help of social media if you work on developing a decent fan following with your travel blog showing attractive destinations and aspiring people to travel the place.
And once you successfully develop yourself as a brand, you can easily sell your own products, or get paid a huge amount to sell someone else’s product, you can also get to travel for free or get huge discounts for reviewing hotels and destinations.
All you have to do is develop your brand and be an influencer on Instagram or Youtube!
Even though, doing it requires a lot of struggle and hard work, however, it’s worth spending your time on!
