Finding the job that is right for you is no easy task, especially if you are a Millennial because, well, your tick list is pretty specific. In fact, two of the main criteria include the need to travel and the need to have a good salary. That makes finding the perfect job that much harder, or should we say, “good luck, Ethan Hunt.”

Most of the time you will either find a job that lets you travel or a job that pays well, very rarely both.  That doesn’t mean these jobs don’t exist because they do and, don’t worry, we’re not about to suggest you become famous on Instagram and make a living that way. No. We’re going to give you some actual jobs that allow you to travel and get paid some serious dollar.

  1. Commercial Pilot

This has to be at the top of the list because it ticks both of the boxes in thick, black permanent ink. You see, a long-distance commercial pilot gets to travel the world and gets time to explore each location properly thanks to the generous stopover times. In fact, most pilots will get to spend about three days in every week exploring a different country. What do they get paid for this tough task, we can hear you ask? Well, the median salary of a commercial pilot is just shy $100,000 a year. That’s right, one-hundred grand. Of course, you’ll have to get your pilot’s license first. Oh, and you’ll want to be the best in your class because they’re the ones who get the best offers.

  1. Traveling Nurse

The thing with nurses is, they are needed everywhere. It is a profession that is highly sought after, both around the US and around the world, which means you can perform your job while seeing the world. Basically, if medical care is needed then so are you, and medical care is needed everywhere. Of course, you’ll need to get yourself a degree first, which you can read all about at CSUSM-EL or anywhere that offers education in this field. If there is one thing for sure, though, it will be well worth it when you get a salary upward of $65,000 a year, as well as free housing and a new vista every couple of weeks. Come on, that’s not a bad deal.

  1. Anthropologist

We have all got that friend that studied anthropology at school and we’ve all thought, what on earth is anthropology? Well, anthropology is a gateway to an awesome career where you focus on the cultures of today, traveling the world and immersing yourself in cultures to get a firsthand understanding of them. It is a way of getting a better knowledge of the different social norms, economic disparities, differences, and similarities. How long do you spend in each location? Well, anywhere between four and eight weeks of very social field work usually, and, in return, you can expect a median salary of close to $60,000. Oh, man, that sounds so good.
