Australia’s ‘Best Job’ finalists get close to nature

Three of the 18 finalists competing in Australia’s Best Jobs in the World competition have been snapped playing with sea lions, greeting koalas and getting up close and personal with a two-metre python. The three hopefuls are all competing for a chance to become a wildlife carer, spending six months in South Australia looking after different kinds of animals.

The trio, who flew to Australia to compete to be selected for the dream job, are Nick Tilley, 33, who’s a blogger from America, Greg Snell, 27, from Canada and Hsin-Hsuan “CC” Hsieh, 25, who is a social media expert from Taiwan. One of the three finalists will be picked for the role on Friday, getting an AUS$100,000 salary package from the South Australian Tourism Commission and Tourism Australia.

Ms Hsieh, the youngest hopeful out of the three, told reporters she felt like “the luckiest girl ever” following the groups swim with sea lions at Seal Cove in South Australia. “It’s an experience ... it’s going to change your life...The sea lions swim just in front of you, they twist and turn and enjoy the water.”

The three will now take part in a series of challenges this week before the final winner is announced on Friday. Tasks are reported to include swallowing a 1 kg oyster, caring for kangaroos and holding a huge python, according to a local newspaper.
