I’m never sure how high a travel percentage might be considered acceptable to some of you. For myself, anything more than about 25% is probably out — having a wife and child makes even 25% pretty difficult. But then, some of you may have fewer roots and an itch to get out and see the world, so I’d like to get some understanding of whether or not higher travel percentages are acceptable to enough of you to make posting jobs with high travel requirements worthwhile.
Of course, even with categories it’s hard to be totally specific. Could I travel one week per month for a couple months? Probably. On the other hand, if a job basically guaranteed one week of travel per month for as long as I had the job, there’s have to be a pretty strong reason for me to stick with it. So — I guess what I really want to know is — when a travel percentage is listed in the job, what’s the highest number you’d consider before deciding the job isn’t worth pursuing on that basis alone?
