The Winner of the Best Job in the World
Do you remember this contest buzzing in all medias several months ago ? You could get the Best Job in the World : all you had to do was to become the Caretaker of tiny islands along the shores of the Queensland Area, in North-West Australia.
The job was paid some US $ 111.000 (about € 83.000) for six months. It consisted mainly in exploring the islands of the area and reporting to a blog. Ben Southal, the winner, has been elected out of 34.000 applicants from the whole world.
Ben started his best job of the world on the 1st of July 2009 and is living his last days in paradise. But is it really a paradise ? Not so sure since Ben has recently been stung by a tiny jellyfish along the Hamilton Island shore and it almost cost his life.
If you sit down at the terrace of a “café branché” in Paris, you will hear people talk a lot about their “carte bleue”, their “blue card”. This magic word is simply the name French people gave to their Visa Card according to the colour it bears there…
But Europe is trying to give a little bit more of magic to the expression Blue Card. The European Blue Card was adopted by the European Council on the 25th May 2009. It aims to attract and retain high skilled workers from outside the European Union.
But there is still a long road to go before the first immigrants get this card since the Member States have two years to implement this legislation into their national law, till 19th of June 2011.
Let’s have a look on this Blue Card and the changes it will bring to the European labour markets.
