Jauntaroo Picks the Top 5 Candidates for Best Job Around the World
Final 5 Potential Chief World Explorers Now Prep for In-Person Interviews
New York, NY - (NewMediaWire) - October 22, 2013 - Vacation Matchmaker travel website Jauntaroo has picked five candidates who will move on to in-person interviews as they vie for the role of Chief World Explorer (CWE). More than 3,000 people from 99 countries applied for the “Best Job Around the World” that will take the successful candidate on a year of all-expenses-paid travel around the globe.
The five leading candidates comprise one Australian, Tyson Mayr, and four Americans: Regina Busse, Jon Carmichael, Annie Cheng, and Cody Easterbrook. All five currently live in the US, hailing from California, Nebraska, Nevada, Washington, and Hawaii, respectively.
“This was so much tougher than any of us expected,” said Tom Wilson, Jauntaroo’s Chief Commercial Officer. “We wanted to hire dozens of applicants - we liked them all so much but we only have one position to fill. It all came down to how engaging our team thought the candidates were, how they incorporated the Jauntaroo brand, and the creativity they showed in each video production.”
Jauntaroo’s hiring team reviewed the candidates based on their initial introduction video and a second travel webisode submitted later. The top five candidates’ videos can be viewed via these links: Annie Cheng, Cody Easterbrook, Jon Carmichael, Regina Busse, and Tyson Mayr.
Each will fly to as yet undisclosed destination for interviews. The successful CWE will be announced in mid-November and begin the role in January 2014. They will earn a $100,000 salary to share their travel experiences via social media, participate in VolunTourism activities and create webisodes of each destination visited for Jauntaroo’s registered members, or Jauntaristas.
The final itinerary will comprise as many as 50 destinations, including Berlin, Calistoga, Costa Navarino, Denver, Fort Worth, the Maldives, Jacksonville, Nassau-Paradise Island, St. Lucia, Jamaica’s Negril and Montego Bay, and Puerto Rico’s San Juan, Ponce and Aguadilla.
