A couple of friends have lost their jobs as companies downsize. Another’s job is threatened by fallout from General Motors’ woes.
I’m thinking of them - and a couple of million fellow Americans who have found themselves unemployed - as I sit at my computer this morning. My feet are freezing as a “winter weather advisory” is being broadcast on the tube.
So, let me conjure a dream job.
How would you like to live on an island in the Great Barrier Reef with no other responsibility than to explore the islands of the area and report on their splendor?
All that’s required is that you swim and snorkel and have good communication skills.
This caretaker job pays $100,000, and there’s a free house with a pool, insurance and travel expenses, and camera, computer and snorkeling equipment thrown in.
I must say the word “caretaker” might give you pause as that was the dream job in Stephen King’s “The Shining.”
If only such a job were available!
Well, it is! Tourism Queensland of Australia is offering the position, and you can read about it and how to apoly for it in this CNN report:
LIFE’S A BEACH
No finder’s fee is expected, just drop DemWit a postcard!
