Ultimate Dream Job Alert: Get Paid To Travel With Adorable Puppies
The web is flooded with dream job opportunities, but this one might take the cake. Or rather, the bone. A popular travel website is sending one lucky intern on the road this summer — with three adorable dogs by his or her side. For real — if you’re confident in your photography skills and have a keen ability to attract attention on social media, The Points Guy wants to pay you $20 per hour to hit the road with a crew of French bulldogs.
The gig lasts through the summer and is technically a paid internship, with the objective being to build the site’s social media following and produce content in the “pet travel” department. Your travel companions, Miles, Hootie, and Swisher, already have a commanding social media presence themselves. Their Instagram channel has over 10,000 followers and engagement levels many travel bloggers would trade their most trusted 60-liter backpack for without thinking twice.
The Points Guy is a travel blog started by Brian Kelly in 2010 which hit it big by teaching travelers how to go about using credit card points to maximize their travels. The site offers a curated list of the best travel credit cards, updated each month, along with a stream of flight-related news content. It’s now one of the most viewed credit card hacking websites on the internet, and adding a bunch of puppy pictures sure isn’t going to hurt that cause.
If this is an opportunity worth bailing on your day job for, start polishing your resume and grooming those social media channels. You’ll also need to film a short video of yourself showing as well as telling why you’re fit for the gig. Applications are due by May 15, and should be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org. The site will announce the lucky winner by Memorial Day Weekend.
