Despite all the times you’ve promised yourself a merciful escape from social media, email, and your phone while on a vacation, chances are you end up posting a near-endless stream of photos and videos of your trip the entire time. If that sounds about right, then you may be exceptionally qualified for a new job that’ll pay you tens of thousands of dollars to live in Cancun and do exactly that while you explore its luxury hotels, stupidly beautiful beaches, and other attractions. Yes, really.
Cancun.com, a travel website for planning vacations to the Mexican resort destination, announced it's currently seeking applicants for a new position that will send you to live in the city for six months and document all of your experiences there on social media. Although it's only temporary, the gig comes with the legitimately cool title of CEO — Cancun Experience Officer — and an even more enticing salary of $10,000 a month. They’ll also cover all of your expenses while you sip cocktails on the beach and scale the area’s 3,000-year-old Mayan pyramids, for example.
The company describes the position as “the most enviable job on the planet,” which is a bold claim considering similarly spectacular dream jobs that have emerged this year. More specifically, the official job description said the CEO will be tasked with “generating videos, social media content and blog posts for Cancun.com and its social channels through first-hand experience of Cancun and its attractions” during the six-month stint from March 2018 though August 2018. In other words, you’d literally get paid to live, play, and party in Cancun as its unofficial ambassador.
