Who wants a 9 to 5 job when you could have an exciting adventure job like racing sled dogs in Alaska or teaching people how to SCUBA dive in the Bahamas? If you are interested in these types of adventure jobs, but don’t know where to start looking, this site will help point you in the right direction.
Believe it or not, many of these coveted adventure dream jobs are easier to get than you think. Since much of this type of work is seasonal, staff members are always coming and going. Some people come back to the same job season after season and some don’t. Because of this, adventure travel companies are always hiring and training new employees; even those with little to no experience.
Finding a Adventure Job
There are a few ways to start the process of find an adventure job. If you want to stay close to home, your options may be a little more limited depending on where you live. If you don’t have a location or type of work in mind, that’s ok. Most seasonal workers simply go where ever the work takes them.
I would suggest either picking a destination or type or work you are interested in to get the ball rolling. For example, if you have always wanted to see what living in Alaska was like, start your search there. Find out what types of adventure jobs are out there and how to get them.
On the adventure travel books page of this site you’ll find two books that I highly recommend for those who are looking or adventure travel work. These are;
- The Back door Guide to Short Term Job Adventure
- Volunteer Vacations
Check out the links to those books to get my review on each of them. The Back Door book will become like your bible if you are truly interested in living the life of a seasonal adventure travel worker.
