Dream job?

It's being billed as "the best job in the world" - six months working as a "caretaker" on Hamilton Island in Australia's Great Barrier Reef.

To good to be true!??!? Well perhaps, the job seems to be as stated with some additional perks - pay packet of nearly £70,000 and a rent-free three-bedroom villa, complete with pool.
All this for you and all you have to do in return is take photos and write a blog.

Still sounds TOO good to be true; well the old adage you never know till you try certainly applies here.

So what happens next?? The job is being advertised in 18 different countries you can be sure that at the very least 1,000 people are going to apply from each country (given the current economic situation I would multiply that figure by 5 at least), so that's 18,000 applicants for 11 positions!!


So how do you make your video stand out from the crowd; well at this point I leave you to your own devices, as I intend to explore this opportunity further.
I will let you know how I get on of course.


Before you go, throw another shrimp on the barby would ya!

Hi Dade I love your site, I can tell you it probably is one of the best jobs in the world. I live on the Qld north coast and it is an absolutely beautiful place to be. If I was younger and didn't have kids I would be applying for the job.
came over for a visit from blogcatalog and found this post.
