This Mexican Resort Wants To Pay You $166K To 'Work' There
Overtime just means more hours by the pool.
Oh boy. OH BOY. An incredibly swanky resort chain in Mexico wants you -- yes, YOU -- to be their on-location brand ambassador which involves, but is not limited to, experiencing all of the comfort, relaxation, adventure and luxury they have to offer.
Tough gig, huh?
Not only that, they are actually willing to pay you bucket-loads of cash to do so, and tbh why are we still here writing this and not on a plane to Mexico City right now??
The lucky candidate who lands the 'World's Best Job' -- that's legit what it's called -- will ditch their 9 to 5 slog for their new workplace in paradise. Think balmy weather, white sandy beaches, glittering swimming pools, palm trees, the lot.
As the resort's social influencer, you're basically a guest, and living the vacay life to the full is quite literally part of the job. Not slacking off would be seen as slacking off. Or the other way around. We don't know.
"It's an understatement when we say that the 'perks' of this position are endless," Iván Chávez, executive vice president of the Vidanta group said in a statement.
"In addition, the lucky applicant will fully immerse themselves in each of our resort destinations."
'Full immersion' involves many arduous tasks including uncovering ancient Mayan ruins, hidden eateries and underwater cenotes, discovering the hottest new restaurants and nightclubs while attending the biggest shows and entertainment offerings in the area.
*rolls eyes* what a draaaag.
The job description states that while there's no 'typical day' your to-do list might be slammed, we're afraid, starting with an early-morning engagement watching just-hatched turtles begin their life journey.
That's followed by back-to-back breakfast in bed meetings, spa appointments, rounds of golf, and some serious hours spent poolside, margarita in hand.
To shake off the stress of a full workday there's always dancing the afternoon/night away to a poolside DJ, zip-lining through the jungle, swimming with whale sharks in the Caribbean Sea or soaring sky high above the waves on a parasail.
So pretty much the only Spanish phrases you'll need to know are:
Dónde esta la piscina? -- Where is the pool?
Otra margarita por favor. -- Another margarita please.
Este DJ es genial! -- This DJ is great!
With resorts dotted the pristine Mexican coast -- that's Nuevo Vallarta, Riviera Maya, Los Cabos and more for geography fans -- you'll also spend time traipsing from cabana to cabana, soaking up the sun and the vibezzz.
Oh and then there's the little matter of remuneration. How does a measly AU$166,000 sound? Will that do?
Begging your pardon, we almost forgot to mention that travel expenses, dining credit, and accommodation at Vidanta Nuevo Vallarta -- the most expansive of all Vidanta destinations set on over 2,500 acres -- are also taken care of.
Surprisingly (unsurprisingly?), you don't need any former experience but apparently, a role in sales or hospitality, plus good people skills and a love of travel are ideal. And obvs a willingness to relocate to Mexico.
If you think you're up for the job -- and we use that term in the loosest way possible -- best submit your resume and an optional 60-second video by October 21.
Good luck, and we totally hope you get it and we'll totally not be jealous if you do!
