Want to know what is the best job in the world?
The Australian Tourism Department has launched a world-wide job opening in search for a caretaker of the Hamilton Island in the Great Barrier Reef in Queensland, Australia.
Why would you want this job, you say?
Well, first off, who wouldn't want to earn $100,000 and relax on this beautiful island?
And wouldn't you enjoy living in a three-bedroom beach property with your own private pool?
Other perks, among many others, include free airfares to and from your country of origin, computer, and camera gear.
What's the catch?
There's no catch! Really! It may sound too good to be true, but it is true!
The responsibilities of the said caretaker are just to stroll the beach, explore the island, snorkel the reefs, and report weekly about what's going on in the island through blogs, photo diaries, video updates, and media interviews.
What are they looking for?
Don't worry about passing your transcript of records, as there are no academic qualifications required. They only require that you love the sea, the sun, and the sand, enjoy snorkeling, a good swimmer, and have good communication skills.
The big question now is how do you apply?
