Melbourne, Apr 3 (ANI): India’s Anjaan RJ has made it to the list of top 16 candidates for Queensland island’s ‘best job in the world’.
Anjaan from Bangalore will fly down to Hamilton Island along with 15 other candidates on May 3 for final selection.
Queensland Tourism Minister Peter Lawlor telephoned 15 finalists across the globe to tell them inform them about the selection, reports The Daily Telegraph.
A wildcard entry Claire Wang from Taiwan had already been selected for the finals.
The finalists were selected from 50 short-listed candidates.
The job was a Tourism Australia campaign to boost the floundering tourist market, and it attracted applications from more than 200 countries.
The six-month stint will require the successful applicant to explore neighbouring islands, swim, snorkel, discover wildlife, and the locals on a 150,000 dollars contract. (ANI)
