Competition for the "Best Job in the World" tough - 200,000 prospective
More than 200,000 prospective applicants for Tourism Queensland's "Best Job in the World" - a six month $150,000 contract on Hamilton Island - have visited the www.islandreefjob.com website in the first 24 hours, Tourism Minister Desley Boyle said.
Ms Boyle said the innovative campaign, which offers the successful applicant, who can come from anywhere in the world, the chance to live rent free on Hamilton Island for six months in a multi-million oceanfront villa, spend their time exploring the Islands of the Great Barrier Reef and be paid a salary of AUD $150,000 - had received an unprecedented global response
"This is not a competition, it is a genuine job, and it will be tough for the successful candidate," Ms Boyle said.
"He or she will be required to live in an oceanfront villa, undertake a range of activities such as swimming, snorkelling, bushwalking and exploring the islands of the Great Barrier Reef.
"They'll need to make friends with the locals and really get to know the destination and then report back on their experiences via blogs, video diaries and media interviews."
