How to Get Paid $10,000 to Take a Month-long Vacation This Summer (Video)
If you’ve ever dreamed of spending your days soaking up the sun, traveling across the country, and getting paid for it, now’s your chance.
From April 30 through May 20, Days Inn is accepting applicants for this summer’s hottest gig, as an intern, or rather “Sun-tern,” who will traverse the nation documenting everything summer in the U.S. has to offer.
“The Sun-ternship will have you jet-set across America’s sunniest cities with pre-paid adventures along the way, from sunrise yoga in San Diego to a sunset sail in Miami, and lots of sunny moments in between,” Days Inn told Travel + Leisure in a statement. And at the end of it, they'll pay you $10,000.
Along the journey it will be the Sun-tern’s job to document the adventure, and photos from the trip will be featured in select Days Inn hotels and on Days Inn’s website and social channels.
To apply, you should be a “bright, creative, aspiring photographer,” a thrill-seeker open to new, unforgettable experiences, someone who has a passion for travel, adventure and the outdoors, and be available to travel across the U.S. for one month (with Sundays off). Unlike most job applications, you don’t need to worry about having an applicable degree, you just need to take compelling photos and be familiar with how to apply sunscreen.
Applicants can submit their best original outdoor photograph, along with 100 words on why they’re the best person for the job, at daysinn.com/suntern. Once the internship is complete the person will walk away with $10,000 and a glowing recommendation from a Wyndham exec, and Wyndham Rewards Diamond Status for five years, which is honestly a pretty amazing package for an internship that also lets you see the country.
