This company is offering $10,000 a month to travel the world
Luxury vacation home company THIRD HOME announced on Facebook they’re taking applications for what they call the “Best Job on the Planet,” a position that pays $10,000 a month to travel the world and stay in extremely high-end homes as you do.
It’s only a three-month position, but you’re expected to stay in about 12 of THIRD HOME’s multi-million dollar international properties during that time. You’re also welcome to bring a companion along for the ride, but the company won’t pay for his/her travel expenses like they will for yours.
Anyway, like all the other amazing, incredible, Instagrammable dream jobs available of late, you have to be social media savvy, a storyteller, and a legal adult with a valid passport to be considered.
Application deadline is March 30. May the odds be ever in your favor.
