Island Reef Job Opportunity

January 13th, 2009 by Jordan

Had to post about “The Best Job in the World”.  Australia’s tourism board has come up with a great schema to get tourists to talk about and more importantly visit the country’s beautiful islands.  The idea is to offer a job to anybody (over the age of 18) who can island sit for 6 months.  The job pays 105,000 and all expenses are covered by the tourism board.  Plus, anybody can apply for the position if they send in a video clip and fill out the application form.  The only responsibility you have is to clean a pool occasionally, and communicate with the mainland as this will draw attention in a reality show type of way to the islands and Australia’s overall tourism.
