Just like finding a full-time lover who doesn’t emotionally manipulate you, dream jobs are damn well rare. That’s why when we let y’all know about our Gold Coast Travel Editor position, it was as if we told you Ed Sheeran was doing a surprise performance in a Melbourne laneway or something – you hotfooted it.
I mean, we don’t blame you. Who wouldn’t apply for a paid gig that involved five-star accommodation at the one, the only, QT (as well as Kirra Surf Apartments), trialling food and bevvies at top-notch cafes, restaurants and bars, and just generally soaking up the sunshine + chillaxing?
Yep, Destination Gold Coast made that a reality for one of our lucky readers, and there’s a 9/10 chance you’re not them so sorry for that. Florence Falkiner, whose application was equally as good as her parent’s decision to use that alliteration for her name, will be heading up to Sunny QLD today to lap it all up, writing and producing content for our channels that’ll reflect her A+ experiences.
Keep an eye out for Florence’s spicy yarns and feel extremely, extremely jealous that you are not her. Even I’m green-eyed over this one. Did we mention it’s a paid gig? That’s cooked in like, the best possible way a thing can be cooked. Her flights, accom, food and travel is all covered too, if that knife needs further twisting.
Better luck next time.
