Now, ‘Really Goode Job’ for wine loversApril 30th, 2009 - 6:03 pm ICT by ANI
San Francisco, Apr 30 (ANI): Inspired by the publicity campaign of Queensland Tourism, an American winemaker is offering a dream job with a salary 10,000-dollar-a-month for six months to drink wine, learn and talk about wine, eat good food and live rent free.
According to the Murphy-Goode winemaker Dave Ready Jr., the ideal candidate should have an engaging personality, should be a wine-lover and an expert at tweeting, blogging, and keeping photo and video diaries.
The ‘Really Goode Job’ with Murphy-Goode Winery in Sonoma County, as ‘Wine Country correspondent’, is expected to attract 10,000 applications.
Hundreds of wine-loving, social-media-savvy types thronged to downtown San Francisco to apply for the job.
“I’m busy trying to turn grapes into wine, so what I don’t know, really, is Web 2.0,” the San Francisco Chronicle quoted Ready as saying.
“We’re looking for a communicator to promote wine, promote what we do and promote Sonoma County,” he added.
Ready said the idea for the dream job in Healdsburg came from a publicity campaign launched in Queensland, Australia.
The tourism bureau there invited applicants to apply for “The Best Job in the World,” as “island caretaker on the Great Barrier Reef.”
The application process for the ‘Really Goode Job’ closes June 5, when the 50 top candidates will be selected.
The applicant should be at least 21 years old. They are required to complete an employment application, and upload a one-minute video (longer videos will not be viewed) on www.areallygoodejob.com that demonstrates special qualifications for the job.
The list will be narrowed to the top 10, who will be interviewed between June 27 and July 1. The candidate selected for the Really Goode Job will be announced July 9 and the work is to commence Aug. 1. (ANI)
