Since I retired, I don’t pay any attention to job offers. I left the working world back in 2015 and since then, I’ve been living a stress-free existence in a Caribbean paradise here in Mexico.
I have no regrets and absolutely no desire to return to a world of deadlines, meetings, long hours and stress. Nowadays, the only person that I have to answer to is my wife — and she’s great boss.
Over the last week or so, I have been inundated with emails and messages from people recommending that I apply for Cancun.com’s position of CEO (Cancun Experience Officer). I guess I look bored in my photos and people think I need something to keep me busy.
Although I have no interest in working a full time job again — not even in paradise — I thought that maybe some of our readers would be interested in applying, so here’s some information about it.
According to their web page, Cancun.com is looking for someone to serve as their brand ambassador and showcase the warmth, wonder, and essence of Cancun as one of the world’s premier vacation destinations.
Their job will be to immerse themselves in everything Cancun—from activities, accommodations, food, and beaches to kitesurfing, museums, ancient ruins, and more. During these experiences, they will create content (videos, images, social media posts) for Cancun.com and its social channels.
The person selected would be required to live in Cancun for six months and work a 40-hour work week (they lost me on that last requirement).
The job pays $10,000 USD a month — yep, you read that one correctly, 10K a month. That’s a lot of money for playing tourist for six months.
How to Apply
Go to https://ceo.cancun.com/
There is a pretty extensive selection process which starts with the applicant creating a one minute video saying why he or she should be selected for the position. The videos are then posted on either Youtube or Vimeo and people can vote on them.
If you would like to see the videos of the people who have already applied, click HERE. After all, it never hurts to check out the competition.
December 17 is the deadline for applications.
