Worried about how you’ll fund your trip? Thinking that you’d like to work on the road, but are worried that you won’t find work in your current field… or at all?

This interview with the Wandering Jocks will surely alleviate any concerns. Travelling Australia for 6 years with 3 children, they manage a Facebook group, Jobs for Families Travelling Australia.

We cover working in a job you’ve never done before, how most of the work is not advertised, how they’ve found the work, as well as the occupations, skills, and qualifications most commonly sought after.

This interview also gives insight into how you can save money while you’re on the road to upgrade your set-up, the pros and cons of soft vs. hard floor camper trailers, as well as having a baby while you’re on the road.

We also answer a listener question to help convince their partner that (even though they have some transferable skills) it’s the right can-do attitude that employers are willing to give a go!
