I recently submitted a job application, bringing my total for the past three years to three applications, none of which have been successful!!
ParadiseHunter.com sent me an email yesterday to regrettably inform me that I didn’t make it through the first part of the selection process, and they have now selected 40 semi-finalists.
There were ten applicants chosen by public vote, and thirty more selected by a panel of judges/employers. I was obviously not going to make it in by public vote, as I entered at the last possible second, but I had hoped I might make it through as one of the thirty.
Unlike the original Queensland “Best Job in the World”, which received over 40,000 video entries, there were only 697 for this one. I thought I had a decent chance, and my hopes were raised a few days ago when they emailed me for some further information.
Oh well – I’ll just have to go in search of paradise myself – Panama in January, I think! Thanks to all who voted for me.
For the record, here is the video I submitted for my entry:
