Hello, this is one of such interesting expectations one could have in their career. Meeting new people and travelling a lot could actually happen the most in these five job profiles mentioned below. I shall describe them one by one in here.


1. Sales and marketing:
You can work for sales and marketing department in any organization. Typically if you are involved with consumer products marketing, you may be involved with a lot of travelling. Consumer goods often require to compete well in the market, keeping in mind the ever growing competitors in the same industry. As a sales/ marketing manager you can travel on field trips to conduct surveys, opinionpolls, market survey, focus groups and many more. This way you get to travel a lot as well meet new people.

2. Management or technical consulting:
You can consider doing an MBA to become either a management consultant or technical consultant. Management consultants typically work on HR/ Oerations/ markting/ strategy/ project/ supply chain and many more - meaning you work for management side only. On the other hand you can work as a technical consultant in areas like Java, SAP and many more. Technical consultants can easily get a job in any IT firm and management consultants can find jobs with McKinsey & company, Booz & company, Bain & company, Boston consulting group and many more. The main advantage of being a consultant is, you will almost have a job profile with 85-90% travelling and you might get assignments either nationally or internationally too.
3. Tourist guide/ officer:

After you gain a few years work exp as a tourist officer, you can also study MBA in Tourism and management where completing the degree, you can manage tourists, organize trips, budgets and many more.

4. Travel writer:
This is a popular job in the present century. A travel writer earns money to travel and write his experiences for popular magazines and digital media. As you travel to places and meet new people, you can always write your experiences and sell it to magazines or media or travel informative channels like the Discovery, National geography, Lonely planet and many more.

5. Photography:
