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!
