Not everyone is lucky enough to make money doing what they love or following their passion. For all of you who crave adventure, there are career opportunities that will pay you enough to not just pay your bills but also do much more… Yes, you read it right!
Here are a few career opportunities that might be ideal for adrenaline junkies, adventure-seekers and for those of you who are outdoorsy:
They are semi-militarized forces that function very similarly to the military forces. The para-military forces include the NSG (National Security Guard), BSF (Border Security Force) and CRPF (central reserve police force). Apart from the adventure that is guaranteed, employment in the para-military forces gives you immense satisfaction, the pride of serving your country, social status, above par compensation and much more… Even within the paramilitary forces, there is an abundance of options. For example, around 380 jobs are up for grabs according to the BSF Vacancy. There are various posts that are vacant for which candidates like you can apply such as BSF Tradesman, BSF head-constable. A career in para-military forces also promises timely promotions and a chance to fast-track your career. We know that this is starting to sound like the ideal job for you. The BSF recently also released an official notification to hire candidates for several vacant positions. If you are curious about the cutoffs, vacancies over the year and estimated cut-off for this year then you can check BSF Tradesman Result and learn more.
The defence forces might also be a great option for you.
This job will take you far and wide. If you are someone who likes to be on the move always and experience new cuisines and culture and meet new people then this is definitely your calling.
You could also monetize your blog by using Google ads and make money for the traffic your website garners. With the advent of social media, a lot of emerging startups such as Trell pay vloggers and bloggers to visit places, try out exciting things and document their experience. The best part is that such companies typically sponsor your travel and accommodation. All you have to do is pack your bags, get going and enjoy the all-paid-for immersive experience.
You could occasionally help people plan and customize memorable trips to exotic destinations across the world by sharing your experience. This is another way to monetize your blog. You could even go one step further and plan organized trips to top destinations at periodic intervals.
If you have the creative drive or love being on the road and in the limelight all the time then this might be the right track for you. The flip-side is that you will have to invest quite a significant amount to buy decent equipment such as a camera, GoPro, mic etc. But with social media platforms such as Instagram blowing up, you could easily build followership and make some moolah in no time.
Freelancer on the move:
If you aren’t very sure of what your calling is then you can just pick up your bags and travel. While you are on the move, you could make a living by teaching something online, taking up internships or freelancing for clients across the world. Working Holiday Visas help you do just that. Make sure that you read up about this.
All you need to have are digital skills such as coding, web development, designing, video editing, writing etc. They aren’t that difficult to pick up with all the free resources and guides available online. With websites such as Toptal, Fiver, Pilot, Upwork etc you can make more than enough money to support your basic needs and tick off items from your travel bucket list. Once you establish yourself and have sufficient connections, you might even get called abroad for a few weeks or months to work on niche on-site projects. The best part is all your major expenses – travel, accommodation and basic amenities – are usually covered by the client.
You could also explore other career options such as videographer, fitness trainer, flight cabin crew, cruise ship crew etc.
We understand that all these jobs sound really exciting and you would like to pursue each one of them if possible. But, the truth is that none of them come easy. You will have to put in the hours and effort to make it a sustainable career.
