International Careers Overview

International Careers Overview

Traveling abroad is as easy and common these days as traveling across town. Preparing people for international travel is at the heart of international careers. There are many different international jobs involved in this field, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) such as teaching the culture of other countries, managing logistics of travel and dealing with health and safety. You might find yourself working for a company or governmental organization, but you can also contract out your services if you prefer to be self-employed.

International Careers Education

The BLS reports that all types of international careers are available for people of just about any education level. Of course it depends on what type of job you have your eye on. People working in health and safety need a doctoral or professional degree, but most others will need only a bachelor's degree. Sometimes, though experience can take the place of education. For example, someone who has adult education or classroom management experience would do well teaching culture. Additionally, having lived and/or worked abroad can be valuable experience for someone who wants to work in international logistics and travel.

International Careers Job Market

The BLS doesn't track statistics on the outlook for international careers, although it does say that broadening global ties and increasing international trade has opened up opportunities for more frequent international travel. It's reasonable to interpret from that fact that careers in international preparation will increase accordingly. Further, the BLS lists interchangeinstitute.org and istm.org as useful resources for those interested in international careers.

International Careers Salaries

The pay is good in international careers. Teachers who specialize in cultures average $79,860 annually. Travel specialists average less at $34,600, although that amount can increase up to as much as $57,400 if you offer more specialized services such as managing itineraries and planning orientation events. The health and safety jobs are the most diverse when it comes to pay. The median annual salary can be anywhere from $34,160 (for a medical records technician) up to over $187,000 (for a physician).
