A candidate from Australia’s Best Jobs in the World competition who failed to get through to the finals has managed to secure herself a top job in the country nonetheless. Ellenor Argyropoulos, 22, has been offered a job on Tourism Australia’s social media team.
The young candidate will now fly to Australia to use her photography skills to deliver content for Tourism Australia’s Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and Google+ pages, as well as on other social platforms. Argyropoulos’ first task will be to document the final week of the top 18 finalists still in the Best Jobs in the World competition.
Speaking out about why Argyropoulos was offered the job before the competition finished, Tourism Australia’s MD, Andrew McEvoy, said that she showed an ability to create buzz online using her photographic skills.
“Choosing the 18 finalists has certainly proved to be one of the hardest jobs in the world. The standard of the candidates, their passion and creativity in applying for these six dream jobs has blown us all away,” added McEvoy. “Such has been the quality of the candidates that Tourism Australia has created its own Best Job working for us in our social media team.”
“We needed someone to help us document the 18 finalists as they undergo their exciting final challenges in Australia and, amongst such a talented field of candidates, we were able to find exactly the person we were looking for in Ellenor.”
The six winners of Australia’s Best Jobs in the World are expected to be announced in Sydney on the 21st June. The six jobs that candidates are fighting for are Wildlife Caretaker in South Australia, Chief Funster in New South Wales, Park Ranger in Queensland, Taste Master in Western Australia, Outback Adventurer in the Northern Territory and Lifestyle Photographer in Melbourne.
