Ski Instructor

If you take a ski holiday every winter, you should be a pro out on the slopes. Become a ski instructor by turning this annual hobby into a job! This also gives you a great excuse to go traveling, as you could head off to Europe and hit the Alps. But there are also plenty of options if you want to stay in The States too. And don’t worry about only getting work through the winter months. Many ski resorts also open through the spring and summer, as they are popular with ramblers who want to go hiking in the mountains.

Tour Guide
Are you really passionate about your hometown? If so, and it has a large tourism industry, you could think about becoming a tour guide. As part of your job as a tour guide, you will be responsible for showing a group of visitors around town. You’ll have to tell them all the cool facts you know about your area’s culture and history, as well as showing them fascinating landmarks. This is another job that could lead to travel as well. If you’ve always wanted to move abroad, learn about your chosen country and city’s heritage and culture. Then you could take your tour guide skills with you!
