Do you see the window cleaners on your building and sigh because they’re outside at least? Maybe an outdoor job is the right choice for you. Here are a few outdoor jobs that can be enjoyable and still pay the bills.
Do you live in an area that is near open water? Although mostly seasonal, lifeguarding is the ultimate outdoor dream job for many. Not only will you have access to awesome water toys such as jet skis and paddleboards, but you will be able to spend the summer days listening to the waves and soaking up the sun. All while saving a couple of lives.
If you are an adventurous person, being an adventure tour guide might be a great choice. Exploring the outdoors and earning a paycheck at the same time, who wouldn’t love that? Depending on where you live and what you have access to, you could take groups along mountain trails, through forests, even explore glaciers and historical parks.
Photographing nature can generate a wonderful career outdoors. Having an eye for beauty is a plus but you aren’t limited to only photographing plants and landscapes. Taking pictures at outdoor weddings, parties, and even candid photo shoots are on the rise. Take your love for photography outdoors and see what the outside world has to offer!
Farming is a job many overlook. Milking cows and working in a huge pasture isn’t the only way to bring in the big bucks. Many farmers are growing produce and plants to sell at local markets. Not only do you get to enjoy what this job has to offer, but also gain a sense of pride and accomplishment for the food you have grown for others to enjoy.
Does access to exotic animals from all over the world spark your interests? Zoo keeping gives an opportunity to get up close and personal with amazing species that you care for and appreciate. Who wouldn’t love being able to wash an elephant, hold a monkey, or even feed a lion? The only difference in this career is you will have to clean up after these co-workers!
Your career doesn’t have to confine you to a cubicle. If you explore these outdoor career options you can find the perfect job that makes you say, "Thank Goodness It’s Monday!"
