I almost never talk about work on my personal blog, but this opportunity is so fantastic that I really wanted to share it here.
For the past six months I’ve been working with Expedia on a really exciting project called Expedia Pioneer. Expedia is looking for one person in each of the included countries (UK, Spain, France, Germany, the Netherlands, and Italy) to travel around that country for a year. Straight from the Expedia Pioneer website: “We want you to connect with travel destinations large and small to find out what they do and how they do it. We want you to learn, taste, hear, explore, and experience your country and for you to tell the world about it in a way they’ve never heard before.”
The chosen applicant will blog, vlog, photograph, and use social media to document the country. You do not need to be an expert blogger or even know how to use social media, as there will be a series of training sessions/Boot Camp held in London this August. Oh, and did I mention the compensation for this job? In the UK, it’s circa £105,000. Not bad.
If this is something that interests you (and, frankly, why wouldn’t it?!), I hope you’ll apply! Make sure to read about the role, the FAQs, and the Terms and Conditions before sending in your application. Then, you can start your application, which consists of a 90-second video and a few written answers.
So, just to go over the Expedia Pioneers role, at least for those in the UK: you travel around the UK for a year to document it, you receive £105,000 compensation, AND you get to work with me. Okay, okay, I’ll admit. One of those things is not as exciting as the other two.
