Are you a modern-day Marco Polo with a talent for reporting and filming, while putting an airline’s products and services to the test at the same time? If you can answer with a resounding “yes”, you could be precisely the person SWISS is looking for to fill what must surely qualify as a “dream job”. Fire up your creative engines and grasp this incredible opportunity to become the SWISS Explorer.
Travel the world and get paid for doing so.
What might at first sound like something too good to be true is in fact both as real and fantastic as the Matterhorn itself.
SWISS is inviting an adventurous spirit with plenty of drive to travel the globe on its behalf for 6 months and share his/her memorable experiences with a worldwide audience.
You’ll visit vibrant cities and their surroundings, experience cultural and culinary highlights, try out some of the travel tips posted on our redesigned website, and add your own insights to one of the most frequently visited websites in Switzerland. Your assignment will be to document your adventures by writing blog reports, taking photographs, recording videos and sending Tweets via Twitter about the who, what, when, where and how of your roving encounters.
If you would like to be a SWISS Explorer, send a letter of application (including salary requirements), your CV, a travel report and a video portrait of yourself. The video is your opportunity to win points with the jury and at the public vote. You’ll also be able to share your application video with your friends on Facebook so they can vote for you. The three candidates with the most votes will receive a wildcard, and will go on to the next round. For that, they will be invited to an official job interview with SWISS in Kloten. Every voter will also have the opportunity to win one of 10 European flights for 2 people.
In addition to the 3 direct candidates, the jury will select 7 other candidates who will also be invited to a personal interview.
In the final stage of the application, the 3 finalists will be given a task to perform to demonstrate their skills and abilities. The SWISS Explorer will then be chosen by means of a final public vote, where once again there will be European flights to be won.
