Oakley's Minister for Fun

Posted By: Thomas Shaw, 6:39pm Tuesday 23 November 2010    Print Article

There has been a plethora of job competitions over the past 12 months; you could forgive all media publications for not mentioning them ever again. Queensland's Best Job in the World was a mighty success, but on the flip side much can be said about Drake's The Ultimate Job comp.

Oakley Australia is currently looking for someone to join their marketing team. The prized role is the Online Marketing Assistant with an $110,000 package includes salary $45,000pa, Oakley clothing allowance $5,000, rent-free accommodation in a St Kilda apartment and travel expenses to Oakley events for one year.

There are 5 challenges candidates need to go through. It may seem like a lot of hoops to jump through, but what would you do for $110k? Interesting morphsuit video by contestant Chiquito

The competition has been promoted through an integrated website/Facebook marketing campaign. 100% Gen Y.
