Why Travel Nurses Have The Best Work Opportunities

I am always trying to learn more occupations that allow to travel the country and perhaps the world. Many people think that you will not get paid as much if you want to travel and work. We always think of the volunteers and scholars. The people who sacrifice a couple years of their career to travel. Well, I have been doing some research into some occupations and I have news for you. It does not have to be that way.

In fact, you can get paid very well and still travel with the right occupation. I am going to tell about the top three occupations where you can maximize your income and get to travel around. These are some hidden career secrets that no one is telling you about. Let me break it down for you.

Event Management and Planning

Event Managers are responsible for the planning, execution, and management stages of the event. It is their job to make sure everything is in place and runs smoothly during the event. Businesses and other organizations usually outsource this type of work to event management firms. Why is it awesome to work in event management?

The event staff and management get to travel for weeks at a time to the location of the event when it is being planned. They get to travel, live, and work at the event site. Not a bad deal. Event managers make an average of $48,000 per year. This definitely sounds like a fun profession.

Private Consulting

Consultants basically live at the client site from Monday through Friday. They specifically sent out to study a specific client problem, gather data, assess the issue, and provide possible cost-effective solutions. They spend a couple months (sometimes even years) on each client site.

They get to travel for free and have all their living expenses paid for while they are on the job. Most of these individuals begin as management consultants for big name companies. They make an average of $87,000 per year. They also make an average starting salary of $65,000 per year. That is some pretty good cash. On top of that, you get to see different parts of a country and really expose yourself to different areas of people.

The downside is these consultants do work a lot of hours. Usually between 50 and 60 hours a week. However, they still have some spare time to enjoy themselves. It is a good trade in my opinion. Not only do you to travel but you set up your career at the same time.

Travel Nursing

This is occupation is one of the biggest hidden secrets in the United States right now. Not only does nursing have a labor shortage but they it a very lucrative career. Registered staff nurses make an average of $67,000 per year. That is some serious cash. But you want to travel, right? That is where travel nursing just defies the system.

Travel nurses are assigned to health care facilities in different areas of the country that experiencing a labor shortage in a particular area of their facility. Their assignments usually last from 3 to 6 months. Get a load of this, though. They make more than the average staff nurse. Travel nurses make an average of $80,000 per year. Travel nurses with years of experience are making salaries of over $100,000.

Why do they get paid more? Well. they are being asked to leave their lives behind at home to move to places they have never before. That is not too much fun for most people. However, if you are looking to experience different areas of the country then it will be perfect for you. Plus, you will make a lot of money doing it.

Why aren’t more people doing this? Yes, the schooling is tough but that is a part of the trade. These nurses get to travel and live somewhere new every couple months.
