Have you ever felt that your chosen career path was lacking in something? Ever felt the strong desire to down a pint or two in the middle of the working day? Well, don’t worry, because you’re not alone. According to a recent Gallup poll, 70 per cent of US workers actively dislike their jobs.
Thankfully, Danish beer company Carlsberg are on hand to change all that, if only for a few hours. They’re offering one lucky beer lover the role of a lifetime as a Carlsberg Ambassador, AKA beer taster. The new employee will be tasked with drinking Carlsberg for four hours straight, and will receive 20,000 Singapore dollars for their hard “work”. And just in case you were wondering, this equates to a whopping $14,000 US.
Luckily for all you work shy beer addicts out there, the role requires utterly zero experience. What is required, however, is an 100 per cent passion for Carlsberg and its beers. Thanks to the boozy nature of the job, you’re not allowed to drive to and from work. Thankfully, Carlsberg have thought of that one too: they will provide you with your own personal driver.
The role was announced as part of Carlsberg’s Probably the Best Job in the World promotion, which the company is running for the second year running. If you want to get an idea of what your face could look like if you win, just look at these happy chappies from last year.
Sadly for all you non-Singaporeans out there, the role is based solely in the city-state, so unless you’re willing to drop everything and move halfway across the world for four hour’s work, I’m afraid it might not be the job for you. But then again, if you’re the kind of person they’re looking for, then you’d totally be down. And hey, one flight isn’t going to make much of a dent into the $14,000.
