Any ideas of jobs/opportunities to travel (with US or abroad) and meet and interact with a lot of people from different backgrounds

Hi, 23 and about to leave my job as a consultant.


I'm looking for an opportunity which allows me to meet/talk to a lot of people.  Ideally I'd like to travel as well.  I read about WWOOFing -that seems pretty interested and  like I could learn a lot but there's no guarantee that I'd be able to meet a lot of people.  My background is in Econ/Finance, but the work doesn't have to be in this area.  I’m pretty smart (analytical/logical) but my strength is understanding people and I want to work in a setting which allows me to do that,


My goal is to get know what drives people from different backgrounds- and I dunno maybe I wanna write a book, start a blog or something

Every place in the world needs English speaking bartenders.

The US Military seems like the only logical answer here....

You've never been in the military then.

I recall having to work with people from a wide variety of backgrounds just in Basic.  There was always lots of travel. 

I've lived in swamps and deserts.

That must suck. I have lived in deserts and jungle.....but also a lot of 5 star hotels for months at a time. Damn, I love my job.

I have too, but, I don't have a normal MOS.

Me either. But anyone can try out.

Few make it.  You in that one where you gotta carry heavy sh!t?
