The last time an interviewer asked me ‘Where do you see yourself in 5 years?’, little did I know my answer would be lighthouse caretaker!
An island in California is offering a gigantic salary of $130,000 to serve as a lighthouse caretaker, according to CNN.
The sum equals to ₹91,70,850 (according to the current exchange rate).
Sadly though, this news has a huge *conditions apply* tagged along with it. Turns out, only couples can apply for this job.
East Brother Light Station is located in the San Pablo Bay. According to News 18, the historic lighthouse, that dates back to 1874, is turned into a bed and breakfast inn.
The responsibilities include taking care of and operating the inn, which is open 4 days a week, only. It also includes ferrying the guests from the mainland to the island.
The position has opening for two candidates, only. The requirements are a slight bummer though. A) You gotta be a couple (well, there goes my chance at it). B) Past experience in hospitality. C) You need to have a Coast Guard commercial boat operator’s license.
What is that you ask? It is a qualification for lowest levels of deck officer, issued by United States Coast Guard. It is given to mariners, commanding a small commercial vessel as a master or a captain.
Hello, Mr. Career Counselor, why exactly was I not informed of this career opportunity?
You can apply here.
