How to Get Paid to Play With Baby Pandas All Day Long
Would you be interested in a job that pays more than $30,000 a year, gives you a free SUV to get around, and provides you with room and board? Oh, and what if we throw in that the only “work” you have to do is play with baby pandas all day long?
Yep, we think that would be just about the most amazing job ever, too. And luckily, it’s also a real one.
According to Chinadaily USA, the Giant Panda Protection and Research Center in China’s Sichuan province is hiring full-time panda cub caretakers. We repeat: full-time panda cub caretakers!
“Your work has only one mission: spending 365 days with the pandas and sharing in their joys and sorrows,” the article reports. You also have to be over age 22, have writing skills and the ability to take photos, and know a lot about pandas. (Um, they are black, white, and adorable. Enough?)
Here’s a short video that explains more about the job:
