Being a Flight Attendant still is a very popular job amongst young women. There is just something about the cute uniform and the jet-set life these ladies live. You don’t think so? Then check out 10 reasons why we think being a flight attendant is #jobgoals.

My favorite Digital Nomad job is Travel Writer.
All you need is a passion for travel and a desire to produce informative and entertaining content of your travels…and of course, a Laptop. Sounds great, right!

Now that is one that I can attest to first hand! My love for traveling started with my first job in hospitality and over a course of 5 years allowed me to live and work at some of the most beautiful destinations worldwide.
As a hospitality worker, you can apply for jobs at restaurants, hotels and tourism companies all over the world. Popular departments for young people are food & beverage or guest services.
The compensation is usually small but oftentimes includes accommodation and board. But that’s totally fine if you literally live and work in paradise.
Do you have a city or region you have always been very excited about or know a lot about? Then you will like the idea of becoming a Tour Guide.
Tour Guides, just as Travel Writers work as freelancers and get paid by Tour Companies to show tourists around.
They get to know the city or region very well and fully immerse in the culture because it is part of their job as a destination expert.
While being a Tour Guide might not be a lifelong job, it certainly allows you to live abroad for a while and enjoy a foreign destination on your own terms.
Probably one of the best-known jobs for girls that just graduated, love to travel and are looking to do a gap year is Au Pair. Being an Au Pair helps you to get an authentic look at a foreign culture.
In the safety of a host family, you get to live abroad, while looking after a child/ children. And depending on the children’s age you get designated time off that you can use to travel around the region or country.
There are certain requirements you need to be eligible for the job of an AuPair. Luckily, there are agencies, such as aupairworld.com that help with the process in return for a fee.
Work and Travel

If you already possess work experience in a specific field and feel like now is the time to take a few months off, then this option might be more for you.
A freelancer is a person that is self-employed and offers her expertise to a business or private people.
While in the past you would have to meet face to face with a company that you wanted to work with, it now changed and meetings are held over Skype, contracts send over e-mail and tasks done online.
If you want to make a difference in a community while doing something meaningful, then I suggest you look into volunteering.
As a volunteer, you help local communities by using your expertise, time or physical capabilities. In exchange, you oftentimes get housing and food, but more importantly, you help to make the world a better place.
No matter if you prefer working with humans, animals or on an environmental project, different agencies around the world such as podvolunteer.com will help you find the right one.
In recent years, workaways (working for a small business while abroad e.g. Hostels, farms, restaurants) have gained popularity.
In comparison to the programs mentioned before, workaways usually don’t require a long time commitment, are very flexible and can be organized easily by yourself.
Especially for travelers who sign up for a few hours per week in exchange for housing and food, benefit from this new way of surviving abroad on a small budget.
