Interesting article from WP's Social Reader:
Australian tourism is offering six dream jobs with salaries of A$100,000, as Social Reader explains:
There have been over 600,000 applications for these jobs of which 46,000 provided videos and 25 people have been working their way through these to whittle down the list... So there may be jobs for CV perusers too.How’s this for a job title: “Chief Funster.” Requirements include reviewing festivals and concerts, tweeting and blogging about them, and being an all-around VIP at Sydney’s biggest events.
Or, perhaps, these listings are more your cup of tea: lifestyle photographer for a popular magazine, wine and food “taste master,” Outback adventurer, park ranger in a tropical paradise or wildlife caretaker to a coterie of exotic animals.
All positions come with an A$100,000 paycheck for a six month commitment and all are billed as “The Best Jobs In The World.”
A few years ago Queensland Tourism advertised the first best job in the world. The ad went viral. QT spent A$1 million, generated A$70 million in global publicity in the first month, and A$200 million overall. The man who won the dream job had a massive lifestyle change and he is now quite wealthy from follow-up work.
Amazingly, advertising for these "dream" jobs has generated interest in mundane jobs in Australia, ones which many people would not otherwise be interested, so the benefits of the advertising are colossal.
So if you need a job or a change of scenery why not check out Australia. See the article I quoted for more details.
And if you want to stay in Ireland (or wherever you are) surely Irish Tourism can create a "dream job" or two and advertise it cheaply in the same way as Australia has.
What do you think an Irish "dream job" would be?
