Dream Job! This airline will pay you to travel the world

Maybe you really like your job and are not interested in finding a new one. Or, perhaps you are not working or are seeking something new, a different avenue to pursue.

There’s also the possibility you’d rather not have to have a job at all, and would much prefer to spend your time traveling the world. We don’t blame you.

But what if you could make traveling your job? If the idea of exploring the world in exchange for money intrigues you, read on.

You can thank Wow Air

If you are not familiar with WOW Air, it is a low-cost airline that is based out of Iceland. It has been flying since May 2012, and currently visits 36 different destinations across Europe, the United States, Canada and Asia.

Trying to raise their profile a bit, WOW Air is offering people what many would see as a dream job. The role is as a travel guide, or summer content creator.

So what would that job entail?

Travel guides will be required to take eight random trips to WOW Air destinations, all leaving from Iceland. Those trips will last between two and four days. Guides will also take at least four domestic trips in Iceland, with all of the travel taking place during 10 weeks during the summer of 2018.

WOW Air will provide a travel allowance of about $4,000 US per month, which isn’t a bad paycheck to collect for a summer job that involves traversing the globe.

So how do I apply?

First off, you must be at least 18 years of age to be eligible for the job, and you must not be a current WOW air employee. You will also need to have a Facebook account, as well as a good command of the English language.

WOW also wants you to be able to express yourself and ideas clearly in English, which is what takes us to an application. And no, this is not like your normal job application.

For this one, you will need to create a video application. It should be between 60 and 120 seconds long, and show why you should be chosen to be a Travel Guide.

Once you are finished with the video, you will go to guide, where you will fill out the required information and then upload your video. Linking to your social media accounts will help, but you will not know if you have been chosen until May 18, when WOW will announce the winners via social media.
