Flying High: 4 Unique Careers for Students Looking to Reach New Heights

The purpose of college is to lay the foundation for your dream career. You try out courses, find the subject matter you both excel at and are passionate about, and then translate your knowledge into marketable skills. If you are currently lost in that translation, this article offers you four adventurous career paths you may not have thought about.

Travel and Tourism

With the overwhelming amount of travel planning options available today, people are returning to utilizing travel planning experts to plan their dream vacations. If you enjoy world travel, have solid planning skills, and like helping people, consider a career in travel and tourism. Within this field, you can set up business for yourself or bring your talents to established agencies.

Airline Pilot

If you yourself love to travel and enjoy hands on and technical tasks, consider enrolling in aviation school. Some schools, like Institute of Aviation at Parkland College, know that airline pilots receive many personal travel incentives and experience the joy of delivering passengers safely to their destinations. If the areas of technology and physics excite you, but not the more mainstream careers associated with them, this might be the perfect career for you.

Video Game Tester

Perhaps you are more of a virtual traveler. Few consider the fact that video games must be tested thoroughly before released to market, for nothing is more frustrating to an avid gamer than encountering a glitch just as you are about to set a personal record. If you love video games, have a vast attention span, and are detail-oriented, testing games could be the exiting career you have been seeking.

Social Media Associate

Have you ever wasted an hour or two scrolling through social media apps and thought, “If only I could get paid for this...?” You absolutely can. With the majority of marketing and research being conducted via social media these days, every organization relies on social media associates for success. You can find permanent roles within big companies, or freelance your work to many. There are a wide variety of roles within this field to suit a wide variety of skills.

Just as you were beginning to think that finding a career meant choosing business over pleasure, you now know four ways you can combine both. Consider one of these unique career paths. There is something for every skill and interest within this list, and each of them will take your professional life to new heights.
