Today is the last day for people to apply for the Transat Holidays Vacationer job, the deadline is November 7th at 5pm EST and I am happy to say that I am an applicant. (more details about the job here) The minute I heard about this position and I started making a video for my application.

For the past year and a few months I have been working towards living my dream life of living on the road and making Travel videos and/or my own Travel TV show. I have decided that the only way to live life is to live it the happiest you can be. I majored in Film in

University and (thanks to my parents) have had the travel bug since I was a little kid. Naturally the idea finally came to me β€œWhy not put your two biggest passions in life together?” and from that came Travel Yourself. Since that day I have spent thousands of dollars of my own money to do just that, to create Travel Yourself and get on my way to making myself the happiest

possible.

This isn’t the easiest thing to do but thankfully I have a supportive family and have found freelance jobs that allow me to work off and on and travel in between, however I have yet to be able to work on Travel Yourself full time. This could possibly all soon change. The Transat Holidays Vacationer position would allow me to travel for two weeks out of every month in 2011, traveling to 12 different countries, blogging, vlogging and using Social Media every way possible to promote Transat Holidays and Air Transat whom currently serve 60 destinations in 25 countries. THIS IS EXACTLY WHAT I HAVE SET OUT TO DO WITH MY LIFE! And now this opportunity sits in the hands of Transat Holidays. I have submitted my two minute video with the first minute being about a local tourist attraction here in Halifax and the second minute being about myself and why I think I am right for the job and hopefully they agree!

I am capable of filming and editing my own videos. I use to be a tour guide here in Halifax. I like to think that I am amusing and entertaining. I’m not afriad to do almost anything. I have all of 2011 free to do this job. I speak a little bit of Spanish. I have a BFA with a Major in film from the Nova Scotia College of Art and Design University (NSCAD U). I LOVE TO TRAVEL. I just had my passport renewed and do not have any flying restrictions. People like my dimples. I am very independent and enjoy traveling by myself. I love making new friends, meeting new people and learning about their cultures. I enjoy giving travel advice and recommending places to other people. I love laying by the pool and getting a nice tan. I AM ADDICTED TO SOCIAL MEDIA and I actually have three twitter accounts. Oh and the list could go on and on and on. I know that everyone would love to have this job but out of all of those people, how many of them are actually attempting to do this job already by themselves? How many of them actually want to live their life like this and have actually already traveled like this and are ready to spend this much time on and off the road. How many of them actually have the skills already to do it with out learning how?

I will post my video on the site after I find out how I do, so everyone can enjoy it too, I had a lot of fun making it and don’t want it to go to waste!
Wish me luck!!

** UPDATED

I didn’t get selected for the job πŸ™ But good luck for everyone still in the running and everyone should go check out the site and pick their favorite. Here is my video. I hope you all enjoy it, I’m going to expand the Halifax Farmers Market portion and make a full Travel Yourself video out of it. Thanks again for the support everyone, I’m just a little disappointed right now, click here to read my post about that! πŸ™‚
