Corporate Nomad?

We’ve heard a lot about the digital nomad, you know the folks who are location independent working mostly (perhaps not limited to) on creative projects for their clients across time and space. While others claim to run product “distribution” companies that seem to be manageable from remote etc…sure…

But how about them corporate warriors?

So we decided to look up the term “Corporate Nomad” on the wordpress search engine.

Surprisingly there was quite a list of posts. But did the search results meet our desired outcome? Well, not really. You see, we were looking for corporate drones who are on the move frequently in their job roles and still found the time to travel and blog about it. No, not writing about their 2 week vacations, we mean actually living off a suitcase (temporarily or a short time) yet have the flair to write and share their moments of adventures with us.

Do these folks exist? If so, in what kind of job roles? Does any of the following fit the bill:

  • Management Consultants (eg the sort with the large consulting firms etc)
  • Project managers/consultants (building stuff)
  • Procurement/sourcing managers (buying stuff)
  • Regional sales or marketing execs (selling/BS stuff)

For Mel, he meets with the first kind alot. Usually on assignment for 3-4 months, these consultants/analysts work from the client’s office in various locations.So apart from the long hours in the office, they do have opportunities to explore a bit too (remember this post)!

And they actually do!

Do you know of any other job roles that may turn one into a corporate nomad? Tell us!

Author: Mel & Suan

Mel works his day job for a living, but lives for antiquities, history and geography at all other times. He enjoys writing and thought sharing and obviously traveling. Suan is a homey person, who like girlie stuff such as cross stitching etc. Enjoys shopping & modeling for Mel. What a match!

    1. Oh yes we have read about them too. Though the amount of time for them to do exploring may be quite limited unless on a longer overlay. That said, having the opportunity to travel is one of the main reasons for folks to join airline cabin crews!

  1. Many finance jobs could fall into this category. I work as a trader and don’t ever meet or see my clients in person. Everything is done over the telephone or by email.

  2. I spent the last ten years traveling for work, but it was only after taking five months off to travel for fun that I felt the urge to write about it. Many times the only thing I get to see is the way from the hotel to the office, but last year I spent three months in Texas., a rather unobvious trip for someone based in Lisbon. What initially looked like a dreary ninety days away from home quickly became an unforgettable experience, one that motivated a trilogy of posts on our blog 🙂 – Verne

    1. Oh yes we understand. Mel too sees mostly the airport, taxi, hotel, office and perhaps the restaurants if he isn’t working late back in the hotel. And in today’s pace of corporate life, it does seem a challenge to take the time to see things along the way. But yes, a slightly longer assignment normally helps!

    1. Thank you! We are award free but we are very happy that you’ve recognized us! Corporate nomadism is pretty challenging. Short business trips probably do not figure much in all of this. Mostly because there isn’t time. But the blessed ones to have a slightly longer assignment time surely can find time to travel around in the place they temporarily harbor in!
