If you have been keeping up with the goings on in my life you will already know that I am currently competing against 9 other Canadians with CampusPerks to be the #1 Travel Guru with Tourism Australia to win a chance to travel blog in Australia this summer for 2.5 weeks. Although I have been putting a lot of time and energy into this I have been loving every minute of it.

My job is to promote the campaign the ‘Best Jobs in the World‘ to students at Memorial University of Newfoundland, across Canada, as well as around the world. The ‘Best Jobs in the World’ are 6 different jobs in each of Australia’s states. They feature the best of the country- the breath-taking landscapes and scenery, unique nature and wildlife, great food and wine, enviable lifestyle and sense of fun which in turn represents Australia as an amazing place to work and play! Not only are these jobs absolutely AMAZING on their own, they even pay well! The jobs are 6 months long and are valued at $100,000! You get a salary of $50,000 and the other $50,000 is for accommodations and travel expenses. How do you apply?! It’s really easy! All you need to do is make a 30 second video explaining why you are the best person for the job and submit it by APRIL 9th! Ben Southall, the original ‘Best Job’ winner, has put together a great article with some tips on how to make your application stand out!
