Traveling Jobs


Howdy everyone, 

 

I'm 25 years old, and my husbands (27)  job requires moving every 6-9 months. We take trips in-between jobs but I'm always looking for ways to maximize our income during the lulls. I'm a freelance writer and I'm sure a lot of you are aware, writers make GREAT money (sarcasm). I found this website that has job listings that come with RV spaces, like being a park ranger or something of the sort-> http://www.coolworks.com/jobs-with-rv-spaces

 

My question is, do any of y'all have any other resources you can share with me for finding work on the road, traveling job listings, tricks of the trade, etc? I'm obviously too young to retire, and I know that's how a good part of the RVing community is able to travel the way they are. But there's also a ton of nomads out there working from the comfort of home on wheels and I'm hoping y'all can share your knowledge!

Cheers & Thanks in advance!

Brandi

There are several different sources, but the primary one is Workamper.com.  They have been matching RVers with jobs since 1987.  We have several pages on our website about workamping and you can start here:  RV-Dreams Workamping.  You can sign up using our Concierge Code to get a couple of free months on your subscription if you decide to go that route. 

There is also the Escapees/Xscapers Job Board, but you need to be a member of Escapees RV Club or the Xscapers RV Club (the division of Escapees geared toward younger members).

Another resource for camp ground hosting is Recreation Resource Management

CoolWorks.com as you mentioned is a place to find seasonal positions and they have a section called Jobs With RV Spaces.

Caretaker.org has jobs for caretaking property and though it isn't geared toward RVers, there are positions that have RV sites available.

On Volunteer.gov, you can search for volunteer positions that have RV sites as part of the deal.

There are also many volunteer positions in the various state park systems across the country.

Also, with current technology, there are numerous other positions that are mobile that aren't specifically geared toward RVers.  It just takes some research.

Hope that helps.

Howard-

This is immensely helpful! Thank you so much for sharing, seems like there's all the opportunity in the world to work from the road!

I can add www.upwork.com to the list- they have freelance gigs that range from article writing to transcription, marketing, graphic design and everything in between. I can attest to their authenticity and hope it helps at least one person! Not geared toward RV-ers, but one of the many things we can do from a lap top!

Thanks again!
Safe travels & maybe we'll see you on the road!

Welcome.. you're joining a growing community of working aged RVers hitting the road. There's a lot of us out here.

Aside from all the great resources shared here, we also have an article overviewing mobile income sources with further thoughts on self-employment, remote work and workamping.

Enjoy.. and catch you on the road!

We've worked steadily since going full time in November 2014. I worked a corporate job for the first year and my husband has done RV Tech work, work kamping, and Videography on the road. The key in my opinion is taking an inventory of your skill set early on and then developing multiple revenue streams so if one source of income temporarily dries up you can make money in other ways.

I would also add Flexjobs.com as a resource. It's $50 a year, but so worth it in my opinion as their search engines are designed to sort through all of the temporary or telecommuting jobs and only show results from reputable companies.  With the low unemployment rate more companies are offering telecommute options And si many of those are full time hey come with benefits including the all important health insurance.  Having a full time position involves trade off of course in travel flexibility, but it is a solid option for those of us who are younger and have less savings in the bank.
