In a time where corporate downsizing is daily news, there is one dream job available.
Australia is reportedly looking for an "Island Caretaker" for the Great Barrier Reef. One candidate will be selected to tour around Hamilton Island (part of Australia's Whitsunday Islands) for six months -- and a $100,000 salary.
This job opening is part of a $1.7 million campaign to increase tourism in Australia's Queensland state. Yahoo reports the Island Caretaker will have free housing in an oceanfront villa.
Job duties include posting photos and videos on a weekly blog of his/her experiences strolling the beaches, snorkeling, swimming and participating in other island activities.
Thousands are expected to apply for this opening, and 11 finalists will be flown to Hamilton Island in May for the selection process. The job begins in July.
Job seekers may learn more about the application process on the Tourism Queensland website.
