Best Job in the World-Tourism Australia's contenders!

Post by CielOnTap » Sat May 18, 2013 2:14 pm

Today marked the release of the names of the 18 finalists in six categories seeking to represent Australia's tourist attractions and products! Tourism Australia has parlayed its "Best Job in the World" into an annual social media/video campaign for young adults to apply to work in hospitality and blog/record/post about their experiences.

It's spring here and fall there. Good publicity for Australia, the tourism section setting up the jobs.
Question-don't Australian youth want the social media/tourism jobs? Or are they having enough to do actually waiting on tables, guiding tourists, and creating experiences? Find it odd that no one from Oz is on the final list.
Frozen? Not I. Love hot drinks and ice rinks.

A Canadian has won the job competition for wildlife wrangler. He begins his new job on December 1. Lots of competitors were in the field to get one of the six job categories. Thought there would be six new jobs but alas, it seems not to have been the case.
