Best Job In The World

What's the best job in the world?


If you have the whole island to blog about and while doing so earning A$150,000 ($103,000; £70,000) for six months.

January 2008, it was dubbed that the best job in the world is to be the caretaker of Hamilton Island in Australia's Whitsunday Islands. The job description is to take care of the island, make a journal entry about the island and relax and be adventurous. The job was part of a tourism project to promote the Island. There more than hundreds of applicants and as I have heard the application site, where you can submit a 60 minute video resume, crashed due to traffic. And so from hundreds, the applicants were down to 50 and then to 16. The top 16 applicants spend four days in the island, relaxing and doing bbq (yay!).

Now the winner has been chosen and it's Ben Southfall(must be related to MJ incident?), the British charity worker, who will blogging about the island. Take a peek on his first day on Island Caretaker Blog


Island image and caretaker badge comes from Hamilton Island site. To know more about Hamilton, check out their fares, resort listings head on to their site.
