Default want a sweet job travelling nz???

Hey all! just spotted a sweet job for some who wants to see a lot of new zealand!heres the blurb..
BECOME WORLD FAMOUS IN NEW ZEALAND


3 months worth of free travel around New Zealand ....You too can become World Famous in New Zealand! Or maybe the world!!

Your role will be to travel the length of New Zealand, meeting with our suppliers, clients and the occasional possum and promoting Entirely Kiwi to the world through any means possible, and telling everyone exactly why New Zealand is the best country in the world - beyond the obvious fact that it is.

Job requirements:
A sense of humor, a love of travelling, excellent communication skills, the ability to brag, lots of friends and followers (or the ability to make them) to tell your travels about and mostly the ability to have a good time and enjoy yourself. You may be required for media purposes so you need to not be afraid of cameras or other tourists or locals taking photos of you. You will also need to be able to take photos/video and use a laptop to update your journey.

In return you will get:

Return tickets from your point of origin to Christchurch, New Zealand. We will help you get your working holiday visa if you need one. We will provide you with three months of FREE accommodation, transport, a daily food allowance and some spending cash so that you can live life to the fullest and become world famous in New Zealand. We will even organize regular "social gatherings" along your journey so that you can meet the locals and have a fabulous time in Aotearoa. And you get to keep the camera you used along the way so you can take a copy of all the photos home to show family and friends what you were up to.



Lol wasnt what i was looking for, but thought it might appeal to some one on here, so if ya keen check out the site:

haha I think the catch is that you have to attend these special "social gatherings" that they throw where you probably promote something. It's definitely a cool sounding job, but I agree with you, there's gotta be a catch because it's almost too good to be true!!

Hope you don't mind if I butt in here guys, but I am the person who is actually offering the job so thought I could maybe clarify for you.
No, there isn't a catch. I genuinely need someone to travel the country for me. Yes, you will have to meet up with some of our suppliers, but more important to us is that you have the time of your life and tell everyone about how great your trip was so we get more visitors to New Zealand!! You don't have to attend social events if you don't want to, but I figured that 3 months of travelling around on your own wouldn't be much fun at all and anyway the kind of person we had in mind for the job would probably want to party a little anyway.
If you have any more questions, feel free to ask me
Otherwise, I hope you guys consider putting in an application!

^Thanks for clarifying that. Sounds like a great opportunity!

Y'all would be crazy not to enter this. I know a lot of TPunks on these boards would be great for the job.

P.S. What exactly are the age requirements?

Minimum age is 18 years (for health/safety and car rental reasons). If a resident or national to NZ there is no maximum age - hey if your 90 and think you can do it I'd be keen to hear from you! But for those that need to apply for a work visa you will need to check based on your nationality via
the New Zealand immigration website - sorry I am not allowed to post a url apparently.
For most I think the maximum age is 30 years. Sorry, its not my rules its the governments!!
To apply simply email a video explaining why your the best candidate for the job to worldfamous@entirelykiwi.com

Let me know if you have any more questions!
Btw, one question I have been asked is can the winner bring someone if they pay their own way - and the answer is yes.

Okay everyone, how much better are your chances when the very person offering this great opportunity is posting on our boards?!

If you've been planning on going to New Zealand, this is your chance to get a free ride and perhaps even become a little famous while doing so.

Get out your camcorders and submit a video!
