Do you remember the post that I’ve written about Best Paid Blogging Job In The World? If you do, then you will probably like to see who was so lucky to get hired. And if you don’t know what I am talking about, click on the link above and read the post to get the point. It’s all about best paid blogging job in the world.
STUDENTS, a receptionist, a teacher and an actress are among the 16 finalists for the Best Job in the World.
Queensland Tourism Minister Peter Lawlor today telephoned 15 finalists across the globe to tell them to start packing for their journey to Hamilton Island in May for the final selection.
A wildcard entry Claire Wang from Taiwan had already been selected for the finals.
The finalists were selected from 50 short-listed for the position.
The short-listed entrants organised stunts from scuba-diving in a tank in Amsterdam to dressing up as a mermaid in downtown Singapore and spruiking at a London pub.
Tourism Queensland has estimated the campaign has achieved about $100 million worth of global publicity for Queensland.
The campaign offers a unique island caretaker role on a $150,000 contract for six months beginning on July 1.
The successful candidate will be based on Hamilton Island and will spend their time exploring the islands of the Great Barrier Reef and reporting back (blogging amongst other things) on their experiences.
The Top 16 will fly to Hamilton Island on May 3 with the successful candidate announced on May 6.
