7 Travel Job Search Tips
By:T Hale

Looking for your ideal job? Maybe you're looking for a part time job or a completely new lifestyle. We would all prefer 'easy money' jobs over hard labor jobs. The job that everyone is after involves less demanding work, good pay and wonderful perks. Travel jobs have those qualities and gives you the opportunity to experience the world and have one of a kind adventures.

If you are currently unemployed, you must understand that you still have a job. Your job is to find a job! And it is a full-time job until you find one! But with all the motivation and desperation, finding the best travel job can be quite difficult.

Here are seven sure fire tips that you can definitely take advantage of:

1.Cast a wide net

The old but sound advice of narrowing your job search based on your preferences and career goals may be a bit outdated. Don't get me wrong; on a case to case basis, it could still work. But we are now in a tight economy and it is better to broaden your scope. Be less idealistic.

Don't get too choosy. After all, you still have other tools in your toolbox, right? Expand your possibilities.

2.Having a job doesn't mean you're working for some else

Be your own boss. Finding travel jobs does not mean finding an employer to hire you as a unit of their workforce.

If you have special skills, like for example, in photography or in writing, you can always freelance and sell your work. On line assistants can work from anywhere in the world. Get hired for freelance work from organizations and create partnerships.

This may lead to being offered a more full time position with a company and if you want it you should take it.

3.Networking and Referrals: the vehicles that will take you to your job

See every encounter as a potential job opportunity. Talk to former classmates, distant relatives, your gym buddies; if everybody around you know about your availability. Sometimes the job will come to you. This is the power of networking.

If prospects become unsuccessful, it won't hurt to ask for referrals. Sometimes, you are given more than one. Referrals are new prospects. If still a failure, just continue asking for referrals. Eventually, you will get to that 'YES!' moment!

4.On line attack

Search travel jobs on the net. Register to all online job search sites you can find. Spread your resume. Create a professional sounding email and send applications.

5.Update you resume

Always keep your resumes up-to-date. Try to customize your resumes suitable to the criteria of the travel job you wish to get.

6.Every failure is a step to success

It sounds like something Confucius might have said. But in your quest to find the travel job you want, it is entirely true.

Always consider that unsuccessful interviews have lessons in them you should be able to pick up. Determine what employers want from their potential workers. There will surely be patterns and you can use the knowledge on your future interviews.


Volunteering can open doors. It expands your network and you learn new things. Its a great way to get in on the ground floor of an organization and you'd be surprised what kind of connections you can make.
