They say that if you love your job, you'll never work a day in your life—Vidanta, a luxury resort company, is hiring for a position that surely will confirm that cliché. The leading luxury resort company throughout Mexico and Latin America is hiring for the "World's Best Job," which is essentially a paid year-long vacation across beautiful resorts in Mexico. Oh, and you have to document your experience for social media. What. A. Draaaaaag.

I know, I know. It sounds far too good to be true — outlandish, perhaps?! But, really. Vidanta is going to pay someone $120 THOUSAND dollars to "leave the office life behind and make some of Mexico's most impressive resorts their new workplace," according to a press release.


The very, extremely, unbelievably lucky brand ambassador will spend their days "acting as Vidanta's on-location social influencer, gathering content by experiencing all of the comfort, relaxation, adventure and luxury they have to offer." The new "office" locations? Nuevo Vallarta, Riviera Maya, Los Cabos, Acapulco, Puerto Peñasco, and Puerto Vallarta.

Iván Chávez, executive vice president of Grupo Vidanta, notes that considering the resort amenities (gourmet dining, high-end spas, partnerships with Cirque du Soleil, etc.), the "perks" of the position are "endless." He says that the candidate will "fully immerse themselves" in each of the resort destinations.

Such immersive experiences might be "uncovering ancient Mayan ruins" or "discovering the hottest new restaurants and nightclubs" and also "attending the biggest shows and entertainment offerings in the area." To sum things up, Ivàn says, "this is truly the opportunity of a lifetime."

The press release notes that there's not a "typical work day" for this position, but each day will entail creating engaging content that will inspire travelers worldwide "by experiencing both the local culture and Vidanta resort life." Apparently, that means breakfast in bed, spa days, golf, and "fist pumping to the world's biggest DJs ... soaking up the sun poolside, margarita in hand." I can't make this stuff up!

On top of the one-year salary of $120,000 (in case you forgot!), the job includes "travel expenses, dining credit at each of the resorts, and resort accommodations at Vidanta Nuevo Vallarta" (the most expansive Vidanta destination, comprised of five resort hotel brands).

The lucky winn-I mean candidate will go through "extensive employee training" that will provide "valuable insights and life-long skills" to set them up for a successful career. All applicants must apply online, and submit their resume, plus an optional 1-minute video. The final deadline is Sunday, October 21 at 11:50 P.M. CDT. Vidanta notes that while former experience is not required to apply, the ideal candidate will be good at:

  • talking to people and making connections
  • communicating things they're enthusiastic about in a way that gets others on board
  • documenting the journey through social media
  • brainstorming new creative approaches to campaigns
  • staying on top of trends, technologies, and other influencers

    According to the website, Vidanta's marketing and social media team will reach out to some candidates for video or phone interviews. The Chosen One will be announced on November 1 via Vidanta's social media channels. May the odds be ever in your favor.
