Want to Get Paid to Travel? Here Are 3 Jobs to Broaden Your Horizons

Around a month ago, we posted about this travel-the-world job from the whiskey company, Grant’s. But, while this cool gig is still in its interview stages, there’s no reason for your wanderlust to dissipate. So, check out this list of other travel jobs on offer, and find out how you can get one!    

Jet Set Lifestyle

 

Ever thought of becoming a flight attendant? Spirit Airlines are hiring out of Las Vegas, Dallas, and Detroit. If you have 2-years of customer service experience, hospitality or sales this could be the travel role you want. Being a good communicator is also important, and you must be over 5ft tall (not a joke) and hold a valid passport.

 

For this role at Spirit, training will take place in Fort Lauderdale, Florida. And, while the exact pay isn’t listed, Glassdoor reports that Spirit flight attendants make an average of $22.36 an hour. The company also offer the usual benefits like medical and dental, and 401(k).

A Life at Sea?

 

If cruise ships are your thing, Norwegian Cruise Line is looking for wine stewards to serve drinks on their cruises. If you are an experienced bar tender with extensive wine knowledge, this is how you should see the world.

 

It goes without saying that you’ll need amazing customer service skills. Also, you should be fine with living in close quarters with other crew mates – bunkbeds are fun, right? Again, the salary isn’t shown, but according to Indeed, bar tenders at this company make $40,066 a year.

Internship for College Students

 

Usually, students don’t have a budget for any travel or vacations. But a good way to see some parts of the world in your college years could be this internship at Southwest Airlines. They are looking for an ‘inflight operations onboard experience and support’ intern for spring 2018.

 

Based at the HQ, in Dallas, this internship pays $15 an hour. You’ll work 40 hours a week, but enjoy flight privileges. The company wants students who are working towards business degrees. Also, you need a 2.75 GPA or higher.

 

One more thing – upon application, you’ll need to write an essay on the topic “Why Southwest Airlines”, so do your research, get your resume, and letters of recommendation at the ready!
