Watching travel movies during the COVID-19 pandemic might either sound like torture or the best possible escape from reality. If the latter applies to you, you should probably just lean into the cravings and take advantage of this unique job opportunity. Travel website Upgraded Points is looking to pay someone $1,000 to watch nine films set in inspiring places, or center around a journey, and keep tabs on details found within in.
The films include Under the Tuscan Sun, Eat, Pray, Love, Raiders of the Lost Ark, National Lampoon’s Vacation, Out of Africa, Catch Me If You Can, Midnight in Paris, The Italian Job (2003), and Murder on the Orient Express (2017).
According to the job posting, the ideal applicant will have “a true love of travel and exploration, a love for all things cinema, attention to detail so you’ll be able to identify the best locations where the movie is set, the ability and availability to binge-watch nine movies and their remakes in a short amount of time,” and “active social media accounts on Facebook and Twitter.” You must also be 18 years old and a US citizen.
To apply, fill out the online form and explain why you’re a good fit for the job. The application deadline is December 4, 2020, and the winner will be notified on December 10.
