I want a job that involves traveling and exploring the world like those of TLC, NatGeo, Fox Traveler, etc. What should I do?

That is the dream of every person who has experienced adrenaline rushing when exploring places and people. Well, it's not very easy to find the job you mentioned. You should start by improving your knowledge of the subject on which you want to present a program.

These channels get thousands of DVDs from people who want to be chosen as hosts, but then few succeed. Use the power of social media. Start blogging, make your own little programs and all these things, and get that attention. Maybe do a diploma or a graduation course in mass communication, or go to those reality shows like Roadies, become a celebrity.

You could have a good chance of landing a role if you back up your case with an unusual idea that could be an interesting narrative or series.

Alternatively, sign up as a volunteer for Green Peace (etc.) and you could land in a developing country for 6-12 months to start filling up the pages of your travel journal.

But also keep in mind that "all that glitters is not gold". This lifestyle is very taxing on health and even relationships to a great extent. I suggest you think 10 times before committing, and if you've made up your mind, don't.

look back ... "JUST DO IT"

Being a photographer, one of my friends from my university's civil engineering department had a passion for photography, he started a blog with his photos and started submitting stylish photos to tv channels, he finally landed with a discovery channel internship offer , so he got a chance to explore all of India, which he successfully completed by taking a beautiful photo of landscapes and wild animals ... which finally landed him a job on the discovery channel with an amazing package.

You need to get started in journalism ...
Get a bachelor's degree in media and communication, or a bachelor's degree in literature

If you are interested in photography, go for it.
That will help
Others that you can be an engineer and a technical leader for the team ... basically there are many ways ...

anchor in college life, move on to a career in media ... and try to reach foreign universities ............. keep visiting their websites for career options and all

Hey, thanks so much for the A2A!

If you ask me, these organizations are really fascinating. When I was a kid, I used to watch your shows all the time. It was like my escape boat. I never got to know how much they earn, or how they get paid.

But it turns out they get a lot. A LOT OF MONEY!!

So now it seems like the perfect job. You can work all over the world, explore new places, and earn money doing it. But as cool as it sounds, getting a job isn't a piece of cake.


One thing must be clear, they only hire amazing people. And I don't mean the best scorer or the best in the class.

Hey, thanks so much for the A2A!

If you ask me, these organizations are really fascinating. When I was a kid, I used to watch your shows all the time. It was like my escape boat. I never got to know how much they earn, or how they get paid.

But it turns out they get a lot. A LOT OF MONEY!!

So now it seems like the perfect job. You can work all over the world, explore new places, and earn money doing it. But as cool as it sounds, getting a job isn't a piece of cake.


One thing must be clear, they only hire amazing people. And I don't mean the best scorer or the best in the class. I am targeting people with incredible skills and passion.

In particular, the boys and girls with an 'inexplicable attraction', which grabs everyone around them, are the ones who are selected. They are called as the host.

We humans have a habit of imagining the person in our minds when we think of something in particular. Like when you think of the Marvel character Iron Man, you always picture Robert Downey Jr. even though he recently appeared as Iron Man in the movies. We just forget / ignore how Tony Stark used to look in the comics. So if you want to be a host of a show, build a unique and personable personality.

However, the job will not always be to put on a show. But you will need the presentation skills to get into those companies.

Keep in mind that there are other jobs that are equally important to shows and organizations. A presenter cannot present a PowerPoint presentation in Fox Traveler. You need people to prepare the content.

But how do you get those jobs?

I tell you the story of my friend →

I met him during the first year of my university. He was doing well academically. But he loved photography and used to click on some of the most incredible images I have ever seen. I was really surprised by his creativity. And sometime in the second year, I learned that he got a scholarship from a famous New York university. He then dropped out of college to pursue his dreams. Currently, he owns an amazing studio and a few other people have joined him as well. He is doing very well for himself.


So it's obvious that you need to have passion in this field before you think about going any further. You really need to dedicate yourself to it. Therefore, I suggest that you improve your skills and knowledge in your chosen field of work. Then practice and then practice some more. Thereafter, show some good results and then move on.

If you do, the next step is really easy. Start applying for some certified courses in that field. After obtaining those certificates, simply apply for them at these organizations.

I hope I have helped you in some way.

All the best!

Identify your strengths and area of ​​interest, for example: photography, presentation, writing, etc. Depending on your interest. Write your travel experience, collect photos. Use social media or at least keep recording videos when you travel. You can edit these videos later, summarize your experience.
  • Practice your writing as much as possible so you can start building your portfolio. You will most likely submit articles to travel magazines for publication, so get comfortable with your writing so that you can capture the sights and sounds of every place you visit. It will also help build your confidence when submitting ideas for travel posts.
  • Although your main focus will be writing about your recent summer getaway to the northeastern rainforests or your winter vacation to the snow-capped mountains of Ladakh, capture your adventures on film. Travel journalists must have a background in photography, so take lots of photos when on vacation. Take photos of the hues of red and orange that make up the sunset in an exotic location and get some candid photos of your friends and family enjoying the surroundings. These types of photos will make your articles much more interesting and attractive.
  • Read about historical backgrounds of places, monuments, food, factors that drive culture, etc.
  • Be a part of group walks. From now on you can work as a guide in your region.
  • Blog in local newspapers about places, food, and your experience.
    Start now. Don't listen to negative comments. You may not be instantly successful, but you will surely have a chance.
  • Read travel narratives and about travelers like Ibn Batuta, Marco Polo, Richard Hakluyt, etc.
  • Practice your writing. Have your teachers, friends, etc. review it.
  • If you are interested in photography or videography. Assume professional certifications related to it. You can be more specific if you like wildlife photography or any other specific area that interests you.
  • You can write a blog. Create a YouTube channel or use Snapchat to receive short travel-related updates.
  • Try to build your portfolio in relation to your interest.

Believe me, I look forward to this opportunity too! Not just me, all travel fanatics are dying to do those jobs. Also movies like Yeh Jawani Hai Deewani, Zindagi Na milegi Dobara has ignited the traveling beast in each individual ...

Well, it's not that easy to pursue a career in travel and everyone can't do it the first time. Below are some things that I think one should possess to become a host on these international travel networks:

  • Good communication skills: verbal, kinesic and proxemic.
  • Good vocabulary
  • An inward-flowing passion for traveling and experiencing "never before" adventures.

  • Good communication skills: verbal, kinesic and proxemic.
  • Good vocabulary
  • An inward-flowing passion for traveling and experiencing "never before" adventures.
  • You must be up to date in general knowledge, specifically the historical details of the places, etc.
  • You should have traveled to many places at least within the home country so that you can show yourself as someone who is aware of travel culture and someone who has the love to do so.
  • You need to be flexible with time, place and most importantly: MONEY (not all of these jobs are well paid, at least in the initial days). Your benefits will have no travel cost.
  • You must have minimal or no personal commitments. This is the biggest barrier: many repress their love of travel or get stuck in this phase. I have seen / experienced infinitely postponed or canceled travel plans like breakouts.

Get over all of this, keep exploring options and new places from time to time. If your luck is with you and you land in your dream job, give me a call once :) I would love to hear the experience.

All the best and happy travel!
God Speed!

Contacting Fox Traveler staff or the head of the Travel Documentary department and asking what credentials and experience they want. It's not too surprising that employers don't want to waste time turning away hundreds of unskilled people. They prefer to look at the work only of people who meet their minimum requirements.

Also, find the names of the people who work in that department or whose work is displayed. Find their bios and see what they have in common. For example, I have noticed that Meryl Streep, James Earl Jones, and Jody Foster attended Yale drama school. When a friend

Knowledge and credibility when traveling is very important. However, skill and the way you perform in front of the camera are equally important. These jobs are hard to come by. You will have to work really hard just to try to get lucky and get a role. I would first zoom in to see what opportunities are available. Perhaps they are hiring for a position other than hosting that could give you some experience in the field and put you in front of the right people. Another way would be to get a good camera and create your own YouTube show. Do everything you can and what your budget allows. It will be alright
