About a year ago, I wrote about the best job in the world: Caretaker of the Islands of the Great Barrier Reef. Upon returning home from “work”, the winner (Ben Southall) said “I think I’ve done more in these six months than I’ve done in the previous 34 years of my life. To be able to do this sort of thing, in this location, and report on it can’t really be classed as work.” What an amazing experience!
Well, I found an equally amazing job that includes sipping champagne, candle-lit dinners, palm trees, and a white, sandy beach with your romantically-linked significant other. The latest and greatest “Best Job in the World” is a Honeymoon Tester. The job description includes “researching and testing out the most romantic and ultimate wedding and honeymoon destinations all over the world and then reporting back with their verdict (on the place, not the partner!) to their boss, 4,000 miles away.”
Apply now! You have until midnight (GMT) on April 7th.
As a HPBW, I must also comment on the brilliance of this marketing tool. It captures the public’s imagination and causes a tremendous amount of buzz, all the while promoting the latest vacation destinations (Islands of the Great Barrier Reef) or honeymoon spots (Ireland).
