A Dream Summer Job for Digital Content Creators!

Soul Society 101 Family! Here’s a dope opportunity to start your week. Would you or someone you know love to live downtown NYC for FREE this summer and get paid to create digital content by being an official Explorer In Chief? It sounds like an unreal opportunity but it's very real.

The Alliance for Downtown New York is accepting video submissions from content creators for the Lower Manhattan Explorer In Chief Dream Job contest, a chance to spend a summer of adventure-filled days and nights in New York City as Lower Manhattan’s dedicated storyteller. The winner will live in an extended-stay hotel just off Wall Street and be paid to explore and cover the neighborhood.

When: June 1 - August 30

Who: The Downtown Alliance seeks an urban explorer with a camera-ready personality, a keen eye, a distinctive voice and the chops to produce compelling, entertaining content. Ideal applicants will have a nose for hidden gems, and the ability to truly get inside a place, its people and attractions; they will be someone who is charismatic and comfortable as the center of attention but who knows that the location is, ultimately, the star.

Where: For three months, the Explorer In Chief will stay, rent free, in an extended-stay residence at Sonder Stock Exchange and other accommodation partners.

You do not have to live in the United States, but you must have the legal right to work in the United States.

If you are selected as one of the three finalists, the Downtown Alliance will pay your round-trip travel expenses to New York City for the final job interview. If you are our lucky winner, we’ll also cover your round-trip travel expenses for your once-in-a-lifetime summer in New York City.

You must be 21 years or older to apply.

Submissions for the Lower Manhattan Explorer In Chief contest will be accepted from March 2 to March 15, 2020, at 11:59p ET
