Get paid to travel and drink wine in a can
Spend the summer living in a wine bar on wheels.
Your idea of the perfect job often changes as you grow older. But whether 12-year-old you wanted to be an astronaut, an actor, or president of the United States, there's a new opening for 21-plus-year-old you that might just surpass all of your wildest dreams.
We're talking about getting paid to travel the country and drink wine.
Now, before you put in your two weeks' notice, there are a few catches — if you'd call them that. Number one: The wine will be in a can. (Push your snobbery aside for a second and imagine the portability here, okay?)
Number two: You won't just be drinking; your main job is to promote the wine at music festivals, outdoor events, store openings, and other top attractions across the U.S. this summer.
Number three: You have to live in a van. That van, however, happens to be a pretty adorable 1972 Citroën that is also a wine bar on wheels.
Your title will be “Canbassador” of Union Wine Co., an Oregon-based company known for its Underwood Wine in a Can. They're looking for someone outgoing and flexible who can navigate a vehicle and is proficient in social media and photography. They also want to know you're passionate about wine and seeing the world. (Check...check.)
"While traveling around the country promoting wines sounds incredibly fun (it is), often, this involves being away from home for extended periods of time (1-4 months at a time), working long hours, adapting to stressful and changing conditions – all the while providing a positive attitude and memorable experience for customers encountered during the trip," the company writes in the job listing.
Canbassadors will work seasonally (four to six months a year) for 30 to 40 hours a week. Pay is commensurate with experience, according to the site.
