从事这10份工作有机会周游世界

Annie Fisher 2019年09月30日

并非人人都适合这些工作,有些工作需要经过严格的培训,有的对学历要求较高。

长假快要开始,也许你还没有准备好打开行李箱,也许你特别渴望成为一个总是在朋友圈上发巴厘岛之类旅游胜地惊艳照片的人。那么,有没有可能既纵情旅游又同时能够谋生呢?

幸运的是,答案是肯定的。Indeed.com最近筛选了招聘者发布的岗位信息,为热爱旅行的人准备了一份工作清单。当然,这份清单并非人人都适合。有些工作,比如航空公司飞行员或游轮上的护士,需要严格的培训,而其他一些工作,比如高级顾问(还记得《在云端》中的乔治·克鲁尼吗?),则需要专业经验,理想情况下甚至还需要研究生学位。

如果你每次只想花一到六个月的时间环游世界或在国外生活,这也是有可能的。例如,非母语英语课程的海外教师通常会签3到6个月的合同,合同里规定好每小时的工资。游轮上的DJ也是如此。

以下是Indeed清单上的一些工作及其平均工资或时薪:

· 高级顾问:92,113美元

· 邮轮调酒师:63,091美元

· 航空公司飞行员:68,491美元

· 零售企业采购员:55,000美元

· 游艇船长:50,620美元

· 展会/活动经理:48,151美元

· 招聘人员:47,252美元

· 旅游代理:38,000美元

· 国际英语教师:21.4美元/小时

· 邮轮DJ:15.5美元/小时

“这些岗位的出差时间从比例很高(高级顾问的出差时间高达80%)到相对较低(零售买手的出差时间至少为10%)不等。”Indeed的报告指出,“旅游代理和招聘人员的比例介于两者之间”,分别为40%和50%左右。当然,这些领域的一些工作比其他工作更有吸引力。例如,旅游代理可能有机会尝试异国风情和其他度假圣地,而高级顾问可能只能在阿克伦一类的地方度过大量时间。

假如说,你当了几年游艇船长——顺便说一下,这需要获得美国海岸警卫队颁发的执照——然后决定重新开始在一个地方固定工作,会怎样?如果你能向未来的雇主强调你四处旅行的工作经验教会了你什么,可能会对求职有好处,尤其是如果你能举一些具体的例子,说明一份环游世界的工作如何帮助你变得更机敏或更有创造力。

这是因为,越来越多的神经科学研究表明,适应不熟悉的地方和文化能够在大脑中创造新的路径,提高人们的创新能力。哥伦比亚商学院教授亚当·加林斯基与别人共同发表在《管理学会期刊》(Academy of Management Journal)上的一项研究结论称,“领导者的海外职业经历可以成为推动公司创造力和创新的重要催化剂”。(财富中文网)

With August winding down and your latest vacation just a lovely memory, maybe you’re not ready to unpack your suitcase yet—or maybe you yearn to be one of those people who’s always posting breathtaking Instagram photos from places like Bali. But is it possible to make a living while indulging your wanderlust?

Happily, it is. Indeed.com recently culled employers’ postings and came up with a list of jobs for people who like to travel. Granted, they’re not for everybody. Some, like airline pilot or nurse on a cruise ship, require rigorous training, while a few others—like senior consultant (remember George Clooney in Up in the Air?)—call for specialized experience or even, ideally, a graduate degree.

If you’d like to travel the world or live abroad for just one to six months at a time, that’s possible, too. Overseas teachers of English as a second language (ESL), for instance, usually sign 3- to 6-month contracts that specify an hourly rate of pay. Ditto for DJs on cruise ships.

Here’s a sampling from Indeed’s list, with average salary or hourly pay:

· Senior consultant: $92,113

· Cruise bartender: $63,091

· Airline pilot: $68,491

· Retail buyer: $55,000

· Yacht captain: $50,620

· Trade show/event manager: $48,151

· Recruiter: $47,252

· Travel agent: $38,000

· ESL teacher: $21.40/hour

· Cruise DJ: $15.50/hour

“Travel time in these jobs ranges from very high (senior consultants travel up to 80% of the time) to relatively low (retail buyers travel at least 10%),” notes Indeed’s report. “Travel agents and recruiters land somewhere in the middle,” at about 40% and 50% respectively. Of course, some jobs in these fields have more glamor potential than others. Travel agents might get to try out exotic resorts and other vacation meccas, for instance, while senior consultants can wind up spending lots of their time in, say, Akron.

What if you put in a few years as, for instance, a yacht captain—which, by the way, takes a license from the U.S. Coast Guard—and then decide you want to go back to working in one place? It might help to emphasize to prospective employers what your mobile work experience taught you, especially if you can give specific examples of how an international job helped make you more resourceful or creative.

That’s because a growing pile of neuroscientific research shows that adapting to unfamiliar places and cultures creates new pathways in the brain that boost people’s ability to innovate. One such study, co-authored by Columbia B-school professor Adam Galinsky and published in the Academy of Management Journal, concluded that “leaders’ foreign professional experiences can be a critical catalyst for creativity and innovation” in their companies.??
