Now, I know what you’re probably thinking after reading the title of this article.
“This isn’t for me. I never travel for work.”
Maybe you’re thinking, “my business provides a credit card and I can’t use my own.”
While one of these statements may be true at the present time, they likely might not always be true for you. Personally, I think if you get the opportunity to travel for work, you should go for it.
Today, I want to tell my own story about how work travel has helped to change my life and how it can help you earn points and miles for your next vacation.
Finding the Right Job
First and foremost you have to find a job that you enjoy doing and that may have some opportunities for travel. One of my go-to interview questions is always how much travel will be involved.
Often, employers will worry you don’t want to travel which is completely understandable in many circumstances. I have been fortunate over the years to have incredibly supportive family and friends.
When considering a new job, always be sure to ask about travel requirements
I have a dog that my parents or girlfriend watch while I travel for work but don’t have any children to worry about which has made my work travel easier on me. I travel almost every other week in my current position and when I asked how much travel would be involved in my interview, I was pretty much told however much I wanted.
