Lifestyle mag seeks beach tester
A Swedish lifestyle magazine is looking to hire a 'beach tester' to check out seaside resorts around the world.
Duties will include receiving full-body massages, drinking wine at local taverns, and reading books on the beach.
Women's lifestyle magazine Amelia posted the advertisement with the Swedish National Public Employment Service.
Candidates will be expected to spend four weeks testing beaches in four different locations around the globe.
"Included in the job assignment is going on outings, lying on beach chairs, drinking wine in local taverns, and other ordinary assignments found in a commercial beach and tourist environment," reads the ad.
"In certain areas, receiving a full-body massage, testing drinks, snorkeling, and book reading may be required."
Candidates must be able to swim, be willing to work late nights, as well as "have the capacity to rest/do nothing for long periods of time".
"The response has been huge," said Amelia's editor-in-chief, Asa Lundegard. "The announcement went up a few hours ago and we've already received hundreds of applications."
The successful candidate will be invited to travel to four different destinations - Corsica, Cape Town, and two locations in Asia - and will be expected to blog about their experiences.
