I’ve been perusing the job sites this afternoon, and I came across two positions that are particularly cool. One of my dreams is to live on the road for at least a couple months of my life. This summer isn’t conducive to that, unfortunately, as I have three weddings to attend, but that’s totally fine. Besides, I’m not really qualified for either of these.

Just think–you could literally run away with the circus! This next one I guess I could be qualified for, but I’m not sure I have the temperament for:
Private large Motor Yacht based in Jersey City is looking for a friendly, reliable, professional stewardess who can bartend, waitress and keep the yacht clean and tidy. Experience and interest in preparing and presenting food will be very beneficial to the successful candidate.
This is ideally a live aboard position as the yacht travels from Newport RI to Cape May NJ all summer long. Hours are not set but determined by the owner’s use of the yacht.
This is a great opportunity for those looking for a summer of fun and travel along with the opportunity to save their earnings as food and accommodation are provided when living on board.

They even provide a uniform! Which is one reason I’m not sure I’d be a good fit–I don’t much like khaki. Or yachts, if I’m really honest with myself. I want a grungey tour bus compartment to sleep in, not an oak cabin compartment. And they use the term “stewardess.” Which makes me think that’s what this rich chauvinist still calls the female flight attendents on his private jet!
Sigh. Some people.
I did apply for one job today that I’m really excited about. And really qualified for, I think. But times are tough. The ad was posted at 9:22 this morning, and I’m sure by now, 6:30pm, they’ve already received countless inquiries. Feel free to do this for me:
