Ever since social media was created, people from all over the world have changed the way they live. As a matter of fact, many of them decided to quit their traditional 9 to 5 jobs and go full-time working with sites like Instagram and YouTube.
Indeed, social media is already dominating the job market. And millions of people are benefiting from it. But how? Well, all the time, there are more job opportunities on offer to people to do what they love.
For example, did you know that you can travel the world and get paid for posting your experience on Instagram? Well, yes you can! Incredibly, this is a job position still open for you to apply for.
This is without a doubt the dream job of every travel lover in the world. Here are more details on the gig.
The Company Behind The Gig
So, what’s the name of the company behind this dream job? Three words –
Royal Caribbean UK. That’s right, the cruise line brand founded in Norway is responsible for getting many people hyped about this job.
They posted a photo on Instagram soliciting “Experience Hunters” on February 5th 2019 and are still interviewing. As a matter of fact, the application period runs until March 1st 2019.
So, if you are reading this article before that date, you better hurry up and apply!
The company’s goal is to get someone to capture the beauty of all the places that will be visited over the three week period. So, they decided to make a list of interesting locations for the right influencer to do their job.
Among them, there are:
- CocoCay, The Bahamas
- Seward, Alaska
- Lisbon, Portugal
- Stavanger, Norway
- Dubai, UAE
- Osaka, Japan
Those who are lucky enough to get the job will be paid £6,000 upon completion of the three-week trip. Of course, the food and everything else will also be included.
So, this sounds too good to be true. Is there a downside to this opportunity? Unfortunately, there is. It turns out that only people from the UK and Ireland are eligible to actually get this job.
Also, only those who are active on Instagram have a chance to travel with the company. As a matter of fact, the Royal Caribbean states that to qualify for this job, you need to meet the following criteria:
- Use of Instagram on a daily basis (with extensive knowledge of all filters, editing, video content/Stories and IGTV)
- Have the ability to take stunning photos and videos (Instagram stories) that capture the essence of an extraordinary experience, inspiring others
- Be proficient on social media
- Be available to travel for three consecutive weeks from May-August 2019
It goes without saying that this is a once in a lifetime opportunity. Of course, none of this would be possible if social media didn’t exist. So, we will just have to wait and see what these platforms will have to offer us in the near future.
