100% Travel Job
i was contacted by my recruiter that he wants to go to a job interview for that IT job....
Travel+Meals+Hotel all included and i get paid well......not as much as at my pop's dealership, but dang, i get to fly all over the nation for free and get paid including the allowance to visit family on weekends $200(round trip)....Best thing its a government contract so they want to check all my background and etc...., but its all clean so its all good....
most expensive hotel is up to $80 a night, so i make sure each will have a gym area there, or make a weekly/monthly passes at near by gyms and the best part i will be able to stay on my cycle, eat like a madman, and party in cool cities......
the contract is for 1+ year with potential for renewal.......If i get this gig i will be the happiest mofo in America........
(no more drinking before job interviews)

I used to have a job where I did quite a bit of travel. I loved it! The only bad thing was I spent quite a few dollars on expensive hookers

I travel for a living. At first it was cool...but the novelty wears off very quickly. Best of luck to ya bro.

I just got out of a 2 year job that I traveled about 85% of the time. It was pretty sweet. I went all over the world. Saw a lot of things and met people I would never have met. BUT after a while, it starts to suck. A year is a good term i think. FYI, sign up for an airline miles and hotel points right away and use the same every time. Im top membership at hilton and united airlines. Hilton gives you hotel points AND airline miles. United's 100k level lets you upgrade to business or 1st class for FREE without using miles points if there is room and ALSO lets you upgrade one travelling partner if there is room. So if you are single, talk some chick in the terminal and upgrade her to business with you..

I have been travelling all over the world for the past five years and it has been an awsome experience and I still enjoy it. There are lots of perks, I have been to amazing places, the Great Wall of China, the Taj Mahal in India, Ankor Wat in Cambodia just to name a few. If you get the job bro enjoy it !!!

The funny thing is I HATE flying. I'm one of those guys that sits on the plane listening to the engines....and every time they trim them back I start to worry we'll fall out of the sky. hahahahaha

i do a lot of travelling with work, which is enjoyable and a good experience
makes it difficult to plan cycles though

i just got another update from my recruiter about this job....
meals are only $45 a day (varies from city to city)
hotels ($45-$80) (vary from city to city)
no health benefits
travel from hotel to the job site i have to pay
stay at one place from 4 weeks -to- 3 months
home travel the money for (hotel+meals) Fri-Sun is paid for my airfare round trip home
salary $21/hour = roughly 35K minus tax about mid 20's clean
this is my first job in the IT field
Does this sound like a good deal......they do background clearance but no security clearance for me.....no permanency with the company either just a contract job for 1+ years....
I don't know about this anymore.....with me running the gear i don't think i can afford the food bills daily being paid only $45 meals a day....
I would do my own shopping but hotels do not have refrigerators and stoves to make my own food there.....steak meals cost allot (4K cals a day) will not come close to $45 and eating out 4-5 times a day will not be paycheck friendly
I was building myself up like crazy this past year for this upcoming Feb. to start my cycle, but with all the travel drama i don't know anymore.....
I was thinking putting the aas bottles in the suitcase and tabs in small candy boxes and keep them on me (not the bottles) since i can get pins/syringes at almost any pharmacy...will that go though fine or can i get in trouble with the authority at any of the nationwide airports........
Another option was (Mail)......receive a box at my hotel and when leaving ship it out to my bro back home every time...but i just don't think it will come in time every time and therefore my shots will not be on the same days and etc......
I seriously don't know anymore about this job...any of u bros can suggest anything...does this still seem like a good gig to take with allowances I am getting and salary.
