The Best Job in the World

January 13, 2009

I used to think the best job in the world is held by world famous chef, best-selling author, world traveler and T.V. show host extraordinaire Anthony Bourdain.  That was until yesterday morning when my wife emailed me a link to what could quite possibly be the best job in the world.

In an attempt to protect Australian tourism, an Australian state is offering a position of “island caretaker”.  The 6 month job pays $105,000 US dollars and includes free airfare to the island on the Great Barrier Reef.  A sign on bonus of a three bedroom beach home complete with swimming pool and golf cart is being offered as well.

Applicants must poses the following:  must be a good swimmer, excellent communication skills, must be able to read and write English and enjoy walking sandy beaches and snorkeling.

This is a legitimate uhh “job” and is open to anyone and everyone.

The full story can be read below and has a link to an online application.  GOOD LUCK!!
