Forget about your career. Forget about your responsibilities. Forget about EVERYTHING! Drop what your doing (at least for the summer) because Icelandic budget airline, WOW Air, is looking to hire a ‘travel guide’ to move to Iceland for three months and travel while creating videos for the airline.

Did I mention, you get to bring a friend?



From June 1st to August 15th, the winning pair will get paid a monthly salary (about $5200), move to an apartment in downtown Reykjavik (pictured below), and use the place as a base to travel to destinations served by WOW Air across Europe and North America (and of course explore Iceland). Travel and living expenses will also be covered by the airline while the pair are visiting other destinations.



The winners will be allowed to pick where they go, a representative for the airline told Business Insider, which could include places like Barcelona, Los Angeles, Stockholm and New York.

The successful applicants will be required to document their trips, capturing short videos and writing budget-friendly travel tips to create guides for the destinations they visit. Their content, which will include videos, GIFs and blog posts, will be posted to a section on the WOW Air website called Travel Guide.



To apply, candidates must upload a two-minute clip offering travel tips for their hometown, and it’s open worldwide!

The deadline for entries is 14 May, after which a panel of judges will select the winners to be announced on social media on 18 May, in time for the adventure to begin on 1 June.
