Brittany MacLeod, or BMAC to her mates, made it to the final round in the Tourism Australia Best Job In The World competition, as one of three finalists for the position of Chief Funster. The Franklin native and Marist College senior tweeted the news, “BMAC IS GOIN DOWN UNDAAA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!” very early Wednesday morning. MacLeod, Andrew Smith, also from the United States, and Holly Easterbrook of the United Kingdom are listed on the website bestjobs.australia.com as finalists for the six-month position. The site also has their video applications for the job, which will involve promoting Sydney’s nightlife and entertainment scene on social media, and comes with a compensation package worth $100,000, according to Tourism Australia. The agency said it received more than 600,000 inquiries about the six openings in its Best Jobs in the World contest. MacLeod and the other finalists will be heading to Australia next month for a round of personal interviews.
