Social Media Dream Job
Mashable reports that Murphy-Goode is offering a social media dream job. This Sonoma County winery is looking for someone to come live at the winery and learn all about winemaking. He/she will then Tweet, Facebook, blog, etc about their experience. This six month position will pay $10,000/month!
In order to apply applicants must fill out an application and submit a one minute video by June 5.
Interestingly, the applicant who is hired is not the only “winner” in this contest. Just think of the publicity this will bring for Murphy-Goode.
Mashable compares this stunt to the Tourism Queensland competition . In this competition the winner would be paid $100,000 for six months of blogging from the Barrier Reef. The contest brought a lot of media attention to Australia and is credited with helping increase tourism.
