This have got to be the PERFECT JOB one could ever dream of. If not the BEST JOB in the world.
I reckon there will be a lot of people applying for the job since if you don't know yet that the recession is upon us. Heck, even if there if no recession, this job IS the DREAM JOB.
Get this, if you are selected for the job, you will be paid a high salary of 150K Australian Dollars including free airfares from your home country to the work place. You only need to laze around a beautiful tropical island for six months. Oh, the agony of needing to stroll the white sands beach, snorkel around the reef, blogs and make some video updates.
Damn, that IS the job description for BLOGGERS what. I am foreseeing a lot of bloggers applying for the job.
Quoted directly from the news:
An Australian state is offering internationally what it calls "the best job in the world" -- earning a top salary for lazing around a beautiful tropical island for six months.
The job pays 150,000 Australian dollars (105,000 US dollars) and includes free airfares from the winner's home country to Hamilton Island on the Great Barrier Reef, Queensland's state government announced on Tuesday.
In return, the "island caretaker" will be expected to stroll the white sands, snorkel the reef, take care of "a few minor tasks" -- and report to a global audience via weekly blogs, photo diaries and video updates.
The successful applicant, who will stay rent-free in a three-bedroom beach home complete with plunge pool and golf buggy, must be a good swimmer, excellent communicator and be able to speak and write English.
"This is a legitimate job which is open to anyone and everyone."
Applications are open until February 22. Eleven shortlisted candidates will be flown to Hamilton Island in early May for the final selection process and the six month contract will commence on July 1.
To apply, you have to go to the The Best Job In The World website. You might have difficulties in accessing it though since there will be A LOT of people applying for the job. I am sure of it.
