Since the launch of our Win Your Dream Travel Job contest at the end of February, we’ve received dozens of amazing video submissions from people around the world wishing and hoping to be selected as one of the four Dream Travel Job finalist. Our moderation team has been watching, judging, and rating each and every entry video we’ve received. It was tough, but we’re very excited to be announcing the first of our four finalists today!

Don’t worry, though, there’s still 3 spots left –  but hurry! We’ll be announcing our round 2 finalist on April 2, 2012. In order to be considered in the second judging period, submissions must be in by March 29, 2012, so the sooner you submit your video the higher your chances of being selected. Oh and remember – votes matter! At the end of the contest, the 10 contestants’ whose videos have the most votes will be guaranteed to be interviewed by the Viator team for the 4th finalist position.

And finally, the 1st Dream Travel Job Finalist is… *drum roll, please*

    You have to be really in love with traveling to be able to accept some of those jobs and those working conditions. I appreciate all those who can.

    I am willing to travel to just about anywhere and DO just about everything. I’ve slept in some of the worst conditions, lived with hundreds of others, and gone longer than I should admit w/out a shower. I am really looking forward to this opportunity. WooHOOOO!!!!!
