New Job


Life is good.

Just scored a IT job after 1 year of study (dip IT Networking)

A full time Salary 38K (aud) on the lovely Hamilton Island Resort in the Whitsunday Islands (Great Barrier Reef - Queensland Australia)

Just think, knock of work and go for a swim in the tropical waters, Lie on the beach, watching half naked women walk by..........

Scuba diving/Snorkeling over the reefs, Drinking in the bars.

I don't know if i can handle it - but i will sure try

Not bad for my first job in IT eh

What a good job, anyway, all the best!

Beware of marsupial lion or the tasmanian tiger revival.

That would be really nice.

Of course, I would not care too much about the women, but the dream is all good!

Actually you have to watch for the Crocs and Drop Bears.

The odd shark could be a worry, not to mention all the conefish, and stone fish etc - Australia has some of the most dangerous creatures in the world - Most are smaller than your hand.

Not to mention the sea snakes - five minutes and you are stuffed

well done!!!

Nah, sorry, I couldn't take such a drop in pay to do a job as rubbish as that!

Er, I don't suppose you need an assistant?? I don't mind counting grains of sand on the beach or something menial like that!!!





seriously, dream jobs are outthere. You have been monumentally lucky in getting your foot in the door at such a set up. A lot of us (me included) are excluded from the really good job's in whatever field we are in, often for really dumb reasons (you know what I mean, height, weight, age, nepotism, etc etc).

Grasp your opportunity with both hands and make the most of it. Again, well done and enjoy!!

regards

John

Dude, that sounds like something you would read out of a travel guide...

"And you and a guest can be magically whisked away to the lovely Hamilton Island Resort in the Whitsunday Islands, where we will pay you a sweet salary of ~38k/year to go for a swim in the tropical waters, Lie on the beach, watching half naked women walk by, Scuba diving/Snorkeling over the reefs, and drink in bars. All while playing with a computer! This showcase could be yours IF the price is right"

huh huh, Dude, awesome. I am very jealous. Congratulations!
