Best jobs in the world / And the winners are six lucky contestants

It doesn’t get any better than this.

Six lucky thrill seekers have been given what Tourism Australia has dubbed the “Best Jobs in the World” – which range from “Chief Funster” to “Outback Adventurer.”

The winners, who were selected from a pool of more than 300,000 applicants from 196 countries were announced Friday afternoon in Sydney.

American Andrew Smith, 25,said that while his job title of “Chief Funster” is a bit vague, he’s excited to see what his future holds.


“In my opinion, Chief Funster is somebody who goes and discovers the passion behind what people do,” the lucky winner told AFP.

Much of his job will be attending VIP events and engaging users over social media, based in Sydney and South Wales.

Other winners include Brazilian national Roberto Serb, who will now work for Tourism Australia as a lifestyle photographer, and Elisa Detrez from France, who will be scouring over the continent’s national parks as a Park Ranger.
