Beach bum job ad gets hundreds of applications

275x250.jpgA Swedish magazine has been bombarded with hundreds of job applications after advertising a for a 'beach bum' position. And we can't say we are surprised.

Amelia magazine last week launched their search for a "beach tester" who would be charged with spending four weeks touring the world trying out different beaches.

The ad stated: "Included in the job assignment is going on outings, lying on beach chairs, drinking wine in local taverns, and other ordinary assignments found in a commercial beach and tourist environment.

"In certain areas, receiving a full-body massage, testing drinks, snorkelling, and book reading may be required."

Despite many people thinking the stunt was an April Fools joke, the Swedish National Public Employment Service received a fair few applications… including ours.
