Best Job Media Coverage

In early 2009, I took part in a global competition called “The Best Job in the World“. Beating out nearly 35,000 applicants worldwide, I made it into the Best Job’s Top 50 Candidates. After a whirlwind of media interviews and campaigning for global votes, I ended up being the 15th Most Voted Top 50 Candidate in the competition. Unfortunately as those who moved onto the next round were not selected strictly based on votes, I was not chosen to move onto the next round of the Best Job.

Below is a collection of media coverage I received during my stint with TBJITW!

The links are broken into “Newspaper, Television, Radio, and Online/Other” coverage sections.

Unfortunately I wasn’t able to get links for ALL of the media coverage I received.
