Dream job -  20$/hr To Travel & Instagram Dogs This Summer


    So goes the saying : if you do what you love, you’ll never have to work a day in your life ; if the idea of spending your entire summer stuck in a boring office watching people hang out in the warm weather without you sounds really crappy, there's a new opportunity that might change your mind ; If getting paid to travel, take photos, and hang out with dogs all summer sounds like your dream job . The Points Guy, Brian Kelly, who also runs the Instagram The Points Pups , is hiring an intern for a once-in-a-lifetime experience. 
    So, ha ha, people who shamed me for following an excessive amount of famous dogs on Instagram. This is the job I’ve been preparing for my whole social media life .

    According to the job posting on The Points Guy’s website, the internship focus is on Miles, Hootie and Swisher, three aggressively adorable French bulldogs better known as The Points Pups. Based in The Point Guy’s Flatiron District office in New York City, the internship will involve taking professional-quality photos of the pups, managing their dog-centric social media platforms, and documenting the experience of traveling with pets. The lucky intern will also be testing out different pet-friendly amenities while traveling and lodging. Basically, you’re getting paid to take a vacation with three dogs. It is a literal dream come true.

    Getting to hang out with dogs all day may feed your soul, but you do need money to live. The Points Guy understands that you may not be able to barter dog cuddles for sandwiches and specifies that the internship is paid. You’ll make $20 an hour working between 25 to 40 hours a week. Not bad internship pay especially when you’re already been compensated in dog quality time

    “Pet travel is gaining so much momentum and we really want to bring awareness to how to do it right,” a spokesperson for the company told Teen Vogue. “We’re so excited for the social media intern to not only bond with our adorable office mascots and create amazing social media content, but to help our editorial team build out a pet travel report that will dive deep into requirements and improvements needed in this growing travel space.”

    This sounds, simply put, like the greatest internship in the world. And! The best part is that the gig pays well.

    If The Points Guy internship interests you (because of course it does), you’ll need to put together your resume and a short video explaining why you’d be the perfect person to photograph these equally perfect pups. “Our human will be selected and announced before Memorial Day Weekend,”  the job posting states 

    Candidates will need to be located in New York City.
    According to the job description, qualifications include :

    Social media savvy with plenty of experience using 
    Instagram, Twitter and Facebook
    Major photography skills to capture our incredibly good looks (yes, Portrait Mode counts!)
    A pet lover and dog whisperer
    Veterinary education experience is a bonus
    Work out of our Flatiron District office in NYC
    18+ years old and able to legally work in the US
