Test Out an Alternative Career

One Vacation That Doubles As an Investment

If you're feeling stuck at an uninspiring job that shows no signs of paying you more anytime soon, then you're probably daydreaming of taking weeks off to lounge on the beach. You may be putting off that luxury vacation until your salary starts catching up with the rise in gas and food prices, but if you've managed to build a decent vacation fund and have been antsy to try a new career than Vocation Vacations might be just the thing for you.

VocationVacations has access to about 300 mentorships that, for a $600-$2,000 fee, allow curious workers looking for a possible career change to immerse themselves in another job for a few days. The company's founder has a realistic view of what these experiences can do, and thinks they can be worthwhile whether they prompt a career change or provide validation that your what-if career isn't all you imagined it to be.

The most popular stints are brewmaster, cheesemaker, sports announcer, and comedian — if you were to test out another job for a few days, what would it be? If you're not quite sure, the company's website has a dream job finder to help you figure it out and a long list of available VocationVacations to get the wheels turning.
