These days, it can be really hard for young people to break into their careers. Many have to endure long, unpaid internships to get the necessary skills and contacts for a paid entry-level position.
But not the interns at the World of Beer. This restaurant chain based in Tampa, Florida is offering to pay its interns. There's just one catch: those 3 interns must travel around the world attending beer festivals and drinking beer.
So it's a task for only the hardy. UPI reports:
The interns, who would each be paid $12,000 in addition to their food, lodging and travel expenses, would be required to write about their beer-tasting adventures for the company's website.
"Whether you're a photographer or writer, social media maverick or beer blog surfer, we are looking for you. Adventure seekers and storytellers, beer experts or novices, brewery nerds and foodie fans all open to apply. So if you want to live, drink and tell the tale to the world, get ready to apply for the chance to share your experience as a Drink It Intern," World of Beer said on its website.
Here's the official job posting. Get cracking, ambitious young people.
