Be a Summer ‘Poolhop’ by Swimming and Lounging Around the Country—and Get Paid $10,000 for It
"Dust off your favorite pool floatie, and grab the sunscreen! This summer, we’re hiring our first-ever 'Poolhop' to travel across the country researching the most epic hotel pools from coast to coast," the ad reads. "It’s a tough job, but someone has to do it." Indeed. What a sacrifice.
Apart from being at least 21 years old and a resident of the United States, there's only one real job requirement: You have to be (or be willing to become) a connoisseur of swimming pools who can write up a snappy Instagram review faster that it takes to yell "cannonball!"
And, to be clear, becoming a summer-season influencer is well worth your while: In return for your services, you'll receive the $10,000, an all-expenses-paid trip to six different swimming-pool-bedecked hotels, one year of Gold Rewards member status on Hotels.com, and—duh—bragging rights that'll last a lifetime.
Sounds like a pretty sweet gig to me, but in case you still need convincing to apply for the best summer job (who are you???), it's worth mentioning that the application is but a glorified Google Doc. It consists of five questions (like, "What makes you the ideal Poolhop candidate?") that you could literally answer in less time than it takes to properly apply sunscreen.
If you win, don't forget to pack tinted SPF moisturizer and sunglasses in your pool bag!
