Who wouldn’t want to be paid for traveling and taking pictures?
That would be like the dream job for most of us.
But that dream is about to be turned into reality for a few lucky people (although for only 2 weeks)!
Netflix wants to pay you $4,000 to travel around the world and take photos.
Netflix has teamed up with Instagram to hire what they call “Grammasters.”
These “Grammasters” will spend about 2 weeks in Europe and the Middle East on the sets of Netflix originals.
If accepted, your job will basically be to hang out on the set, take pictures and post them on Instagram.
How Much Will You Get Paid?
Netflix says they will pay you $2,000 a week. And since this is a two-week position, you will earn $4,000.
And you know the best part?
All your travel setup and expenses will be covered by Netflix. They’ll do all the paperwork and hotel reservation and whatever else is involved in making this possible an d they will pay for all the expenses–plane tickets, food, hotel, etc.
How Will Netflix Pick Grammasters?
It’s really unclear what criteria Netflix will use to choose the four lucky Grammasters.
Here is what Netflix says:
We’re looking for TV & movie fans with a talent for taking pictures. Choose photos that show off your interests or passions.
Based on that, I’d assume if you are an active Instagram user with lots of move and TV shows related pictures, you have a better chance of getting this dream job.
What If I’m Late or Not Accepted?
If you are not accepted, or the program is closed by the time you get to apply, don’t be discouraged. Netflix does this, or some variation of it, every year.
In fact, I covered it 2 years ago when they had the same program in 2014.
Last year, three lucky people were sent to North America where they took pictures of sets of Netflix original shows as well as shows purchased by Netflix to be streamed on it, like “House of Cards,” “Twin Peaks,” “Gossip Girl,” and “Dexter.”
So, don’t worry if you are not accepted. You will have another chance next year.
