You Could Get Paid to Do Absolutely Nothing by This Travel Company (Video)
For those who spend their days looking for ways to avoid work, here’s a job that will actually encourage you to slack off on the clock.
Travel agency TUI is looking for four “Professional Slackers” to basically sit around and do nothing at all.
These “Fakeation Specialists” merely hang out in a “cozy” office that’s decked out in Mediterranean beach decor, in summery attire with their feet in the sand. During the day, their “workload” consists of lounging about and “[ignoring] stressful bypassing commuters and [focusing] on your own relaxation.”
Among the “qualifications”, applicants must “not at all able to think outside the box,” hate things like “productivity” and “deadlines,” be lovers of sitting and lying down, and be true connoisseurs of relaxation. Experience taking naps at work is a huge plus.
The “primary responsibilities” of the job are listed as “None.”
One drawback might be that the job is in Stockholm, Sweden. However, the job is only for a fixed term between January 22 and February 4. So, yes, this is basically a paid vacation.
The four professional slackers will be paid hourly, and part-time shifts run between 7 a.m. to 1 p.m. and 1 p.m. to 7 p.m. Trust us, this will be a job you won’t mind getting up early for.
TUI is accepting applications through January 14. You don’t even need a resume or cover letter, just write a few sentences on why you’d be the best slacker for the job and take a picture of yourself in your most relaxed position.
