On the Road Again
It seems like so many job seekers today are not only willing to travel but actually seeking jobs where travel is required. That’s a change from the traditional mindset that jobs that require travel are less-than-desirable. Part of the reason for the shift may well be the increasing ease of doing business in a remote location or while on the road. Technology has changed the face of business and part of that face includes travel.

I don’t travel so much for business as I do for pleasure but I have noted some basic changes that we seem to take for granted that weren’t available just a few short years ago. For example, even bargain-priced hotels now offer in-room high speed Internet connections. You can find free wireless hot spots all over the place now. I found IHOP has a wireless hot spot for people who aren’t afraid of getting syrup on their laptops. Most coffee houses are wired and I even found a marina that offers wireless connections for every boat slip.

I often think of the road warrior class as the traveling salesmen of the twenty-first century. Instead of traveling around in a Buick with a selection of brushes or encyclopedias, salesmen these days fly business class and carry a Blackberry. They are selling software and services rather than brushes and books. People used to take work home; now they work at home on a permanent basis.

I look at the changes over the past twenty years and wonder what the next twenty years will bring. What will be different in 2026? Think back to 1986 and just look at how lifestyles and technology has changed. It’s astounding to think about the future in the context of the past. Maybe those flying cars our parents promised us aren’t that far off after all.
