Looking for a part-time job? Mexico has an offer that’s pretty hard to refuse. Cancun, the popular vacation resort along the Mexican coast, says it’s on the hunt for a CEO—Cancun Experience Officer. And it will pay $10,000 per month and cover all expenses of whoever gets the six-month job.
If you’re interested in applying, you’ll have to be available to live in Cancun from March to Aug. 2018 without interruptions. And there’s a surprisingly thorough job application (which requires a one minute video) you’ll have to fill out as well.
And while the pay and benefits are pretty excellent, this isn’t a six month vacation. You’ll be expected to generate videos, social media posts, and blog posts for Cancun.com. Of course, those sorts of things will require field trips and research, meaning you’ll also have to tackle such tasks as climbing a 3,000 year old pyramid or swimming with a whale shark. You’ll have to sleep overlooking pristine beaches. And odds are pretty good that a cerveza or margarita will be involved as well.
Cancun.com says it will pick the top 100 candidates in December and weed it down to the top 50 on Jan 4. Five finalists will fly to Cancun later that month for the final selection process.
We’re Hiring a Cancun Experience Officer: We will pay the right candidate $10,000/month to create videos, tell stories, and share their experiences living, playing, and discovering Cancun.
We’re looking for brand ambassador who can showcase the warmth, wonder, and essence of Cancun as one of the world’s premier vacation destinations. As CEO, you will get the chance to swim with whale sharks, explore the jungle, investigate ancient ruins, and much more. Over a period of six months, you’ll research, capture, record, and represent the destination for Cancun.com. No experience is required to apply.

Over time, it will become a comprehensive and experiential resource for travelers, full of rich, authentic content including videos, images, and articles. The stories that we tell will both inspire and inform millions of travelers as the content is published on the site and across multiple social platforms.
The selected CEO will receive a salary of $10,000 / month for 6 months. They will be housed in luxury hotels and resorts for the duration of their stay. All work-related accommodations, excursions, and equipment will be completely paid for by Cancun.com.
