Grab Your Valentine, This Company Wants To Send You to the Most Romantic Places in Europe for Free
A new Kayak survey shows that 59% would rather travel somewhere with their partner than exchange gifts to commemorate Valentine’s Day. So I’d like to politely direct those respondents to this dream job posting—to become “Proposal Ambassadors” and go on a free European getaway of your choosing this lovey-dovey season.
Engagement ring company Robbins Brothers is searching for a couple who would love traveling together—and are willing to document everything along the way (which many people do regardless). But we’re not just talking travel to one destination in Europe, turn around, and come home. The pair is expected to identify 20 of the best proposal spots—so that means checking out at least 20 places in Europe—for others who are planning grand gestures.
“It’s important for Robbins Brothers to find new and unique ways to assist couples who want to create an impressive romantic milestone,” Chris Weakley, VP of marketing for Robbins Brothers, said in a statement. “We realize that the proposal location is an important factor as the photos and videos captured are memories that live forever.”
One of the best parts of the gig is that you control when you go, not the company, so no quitting your day job required. The only qualifications for the dream job are to be in a relationship—which means seriously dating, engaged, or married, according to the official website—be active on social media, create content revolving around their experiences, and the most obvious task, travel a lot.
So now, the application process. To apply, the couples must answer a questionnaire and submit a short video explaining why they deserve to be the 2020 Proposal Ambassadors, according to Travel + Leisure. Interested candidates can throw their hat in the ring one of two ways: attend one of the limited in-store events that allows you to send in your application early, or send in your online application when the contest officially opens February 14, 2020, through February 28, 2020. See here for everything you need to know and where to apply.
Finalists will be announced on March 16, 2020, and voting to choose the winner will be open to the public March 26, 2020. The big news will be revealed on April 6, 2020, and they’ll have the rest of the year to complete their travels. Bon voyage!
