1. Travel Nurse. Travel nurses temporarily fill open positions wherever they’re needed. You might tend to a jellyfish sting in Hawaii one day and nurse a broken leg in Aspen the next. Labor and delivery nurses, emergency room nurses, and operating room nurses are just a few of the positions that are in constant high demand around the country.

2. Athletic Scout.  Athletic scouts work for colleges and professional sports teams, or they can freelance for several different teams. Their job is to seek out the best and brightest young athletes and recruit them onto the teams they represent. To find those players, scouts scour newspaper and TV reports for stories of gifted athletes. They also have to sit through a lot of high school or college games around the country, and sometimes abroad.

3. Roadie. Road crew members — affectionately known as roadies — are the folks who handle the stage productions for touring acts. Lighting and sound engineers, riggers, stagehands and instrument technicians are all considered roadies.

4. Tour Guide. Every city that attracts tourists needs tour guides. Some guides work for a particular location (such as a museum), while others lead themed tours (like ghost tours or historical bus tours). If you’re particularly good at your job, you can eventually work your way up to become a director or even owner of a tour company.

5. Civil Servant. Whether your background is in engineering, security, accounting, healthcare, management, IT or operations, there’s probably a civil service position related to your skills. Civil service jobs not only give you the chance to travel, but many positions pay well and offer relocation, cost-of-living allowances and excellent benefits.

6. International Aid Worker. International aid workers help countries that are struggling or recovering from economic crises, natural disasters, war, famine and despotism. Depending on their experience, aid workers might teach in Afghanistan, organize relief convoys to combat areas in Somalia, or introduce new heat-resistant crops to nations throughout Africa.

7. Archaeologist. Imagine discovering the world’s oldest known tool, or unearthing the skeleton of one of our very first ancestors. Every day, archaeologists are discovering the kinds of buried treasures that give them a glimpse into life thousands — or even millions — of years in the past.

8. English Teacher. As an ESL teacher, you’ll get paid for the privilege of being immersed in a different culture. Many English teachers are provided with free accommodations while they’re working abroad. You’ll also get the satisfaction of knowing that you’re teaching a valuable skill.

9. Field Service Technician. Field service technicians are like equipment doctors making technical house calls. They might go to a construction site to fix a broken crane, a big-city high-rise to fix an elevator, or a remote train track to bring a disabled engine back to life. Field service technicians can work for the government, equipment manufacturers, computer repair companies or construction and transportation businesses.

10. Professional Yacht Crew. Thousands of superyachts are floating around the world, from Sydney to Singapore. And most of those yachts need crews to keep them afloat. Yachts need captains to drive them, deckhands to maintain the exterior, stewardesses to dust and polish the interior, engineers to keep the engines running and chefs to satisfy the dining pleasures of the yacht’s well-heeled occupants. Speaking of the occupants, yacht crews have the chance to meet some of the biggest names in business, politics and entertainment while they’re sailing around the world and getting paid for it.
