It’s a pretty fantastic gig: Your title would be the “Murphy-Goode Wine Country Lifestyle Correspondent,” and you would be expected to taste lots and lots wine, then blog/tweet/Facebook about it (as well as play plenty of poker and Liar’s Dice).
The only part that sounds even remotely like work is where they want you to participate in tracking the local owl and raptor population (?); however, you’re also expected to scout out new picnic locations, so I can’t imagine you’ll be too terribly taxed.
They want you to be over 21 (duh), and you’ve got to create and upload a 60-second (and not a second more!) video, plus writing samples. Presumably, you can learn raptor-tracking on the job. They’re basically hiring you for six months of fabulous PR, at a sweet $10K a month.
Oh yeah, they’re also putting you up in a deluxe private home in the heart of Wine Country within walking distance of their tasting room on Healdsburg Square. If that wasn’t enough, you’ll also get a computer, PDA, and digital and still camera access. The contest entry is open until June 5, and the gig starts August 1.
