Get a Job Instagramming for Netflix, Check “Get Dream Job” Off List
At a not-too-shabby one million followers, it would hardly seem as though Netflix needs to work on its Instagram account and yet, the insanely fast-growing company isn’t about to rest on its laurels. Why settle for one million when it could have two?
And now, it’s asking for help from Netflix fans everywhere. On March 6, it’ll select four “Grammasters” who will travel to Europe and the Middle East to take pictures on behalf of the company. While on location, these Grammasters will visit the sets of popular TV shows, films, and even Netflix original series, snapping photos for the popular social media platform. If they didn’t have Instagram cred before, you can bet they will after the on-location gig has wrapped up. But, it’s not just a future job in social media for a big-name company that one of the chosen could realistically settle upon: The pay is $4,000 for the two weeks, and all travel costs are, of course, included.
Sound like the gig for you? The deadline for applying is fast approaching, and the requested material is (ostensibly) simple: follow the Insta account (as if you don’t already), and hashtag three photos with the hashtag #grammasters3. Very few, if any, guidelines about what kinds of photos to post exist, so obviously you’ll want to flex every single creative bone in your body if you want to stand a chance.
According to the job page, Netflix is “looking for TV & movie fans with a talent for taking pictures.” You’re encouraged to show off your “passions” via the three photos. To get a sense of what other applicants are posting (and how you might be able to stand above the rest), just search for the specified hashtag.
Here’s your chance, Muse readers. Time to put your Instagram-savvy to real, functional use. Snagging one of these four, no doubt highly competitive positions could be your big break. Until now, I bet you thought getting paid to watch Netflix was the best thing you’d ever heard.
