Vocation Vacations - WV on the Radio

Tune in Tuesday morning to Takeaway on Public Radio International and WNYC New York to learn about "vocation vacations" - what they are, who they're for, how one goes about going on one, and more...

Contributor Beth Kobliner introduces us to the variety of working vacations out there - from the weekend fantasy job as a Hollywood makeup artist to the seasonal job on a cruise ship to the week-long forestry gig that can lead to permanent work. And a current volunteer who first took a "vocation vacation" with Wilderness Volunteers while in college explains how his experience working in the woods for a week contributed to a new job in the outdoors and, later, to a career in the energy and conservation field.

Skip ahead to 3:34 and listen in:
