The New, Best Job In The World?
By Pam Kruger
Every once in a while, a job comes along that sounds too good to be true -- but is 100 percent real. Take this job opening posted by U.K. resort firm, First Choice: It is seeking a "slide tester" to approve water slides in SplashWorld water parks.
The six-month gig involves traveling to SplashWorld parks throughout Europe, and a couple in Egypt, Thailand and Turkey. Your days will be spent trying out water slides, sampling food and blogging. The pay? About 20,000 pounds (equivalent to $32,000) -- plus all your travel expenses paid. Oh, and you also get a free one-week vacation for two at a First Choice resort of your choice when the gig is up.
The previous tester, Tommy Lynch, held the job for four years and called it "the best job in the world."
Of course, the job does come with a hitch: You need to apply via this Facebook page and not be shy about being seen in a bathing suit, as First Choice will expect you to be "happy to get wet at work."
