Good Websites and Other Tools for Your On-the-go Job Search

Here are a list of some websites I ran into that might be helpful to you while you search for a way to make money during your travels: (Search multiple cities on Craigslist and not just the one or ones you will be staying in. Often, there are excellent telecommuter opportunities or creative jobs you hadn't thought of.) (Try this site too. It seems pretty good.) (Another telecommuting site.) (There are tons of writer and online or freelance opportunities on Media Bistro. Definitely one of my favorites of the group! Free to sign up.) (Adventure travel jobs, working abroad, and volunteer opportunities.) (This one is cool! Check it out!) (Some good ideas here.) (I always get a laugh - and some tips - from Andy at Hobo Traveler. Somehow he pulls off permanent travel and has been doing it for years, so he must be doing something right.) 

***My absolute favorite resource: YOUR IMAGINATION! Start a web design or copywriting business...a blog...a consulting company...whatever you're good at! Everyone is good at something. 

Get over the fear of the unknown and take the leap so you can start living. If you want to travel badly enough, you will find a way to integrate your work and finances into your travels. You can do it. I know you can. You will thank me later for saying this. :)

Comment on any other ideas you might have - or even if you have something semi-unrelated to add to the discussion. I'd love to hear your thoughts. 

Also, if you know of another great job search resource, comment with the link and brief description of the website. 

Thanks for reading! And get going with your job search! :)
