Making a Video To Get a Job

Paris Flea Markets - GlobesThe internet is a brilliant place sometimes. As I was mindlessly scrolling through my twitter feed the other day I stumbled across a link to a once-in-a-lifetime job opportunity. I immediately clicked through to discover the Pioneer Expedia role being up for grabs and I knew it would be the perfect job for me.

The role is to spend 12 months exploring, sampling, enjoying and sharing everything that makes the UK a one-of-a-kind country. It’s a paid role, with expenses included. My job would be to create blog posts, photos, and videos to share my adventures every day for a year. So basically the job is … have an adventure and blog about it. See? Totally my kind of job! I think I’d suit this job perfectly.

The only downside was that I found out about this opportunity on the last day of applications. Eeeeek! And I was already tied up for a half the day filming for a blog campaign I’m working on. So I literally had to find a quiet alleyway in Soho, quickly film a few words on my iphone, run into a coffee shop, quickly edit the video to under 90 seconds and get it uploaded to youtube before the 5 o’clock deadline.

It was manic!

I JUST about made it in time. Phew!

It’s not my greatest work, but I hope it shows enough about me to get me to the second round where I could be invited along for an interview. *fingers crossed*


I think it goes without saying that I would thrive in the Pioneer Expedia role. It’s like all of my crazy different skills could all come together in one place. All my travels, expeditions, passion for exploring the UK, blogging and vlogging. My passion for sharing with the internet and generally celebrating everything that is awesome, whether it is grand or simple. The job is what I was made for.

Digging Away

Sooooo…. now I just need to wait and hope that the lovely people at  Pioneer Expedia and Traveller Notes, see enough in the video to like me and invited me down to London for an interview.

Dear reader, would you be so lovely to support me by watching my video and giving it a thumbs up on youtube.

Even better if you could get your friends to watch it too! I’d be forever grateful for any support I could get.

Here’s hoping!

And after all is said and done, you have to put yourself out there to see what opportunities you can grab.

Happy Sunday everyone!
