As summer approaches, many young people are thirsting for travel and looking for a job, and Days Inn by Wyndham has the perfect gig to satisfy them. The hotel chain wants to task one travel enthusiast with social media and photography skills to be its “Suntern” for two weeks this summer.
The “Sunternship” participant will pack their bags and head out on a cross-country road trip. Their storytelling and photography skills will be put to the test, taking photos and videos for Days Inn to use on its website and social media platforms. The destinations are flexible and customizable, so you can design the perfect road trip, just as long as you stop at Days Inns along the way.
“For over 50 years, we’ve made it our mission to help guests make the most out of their travels, and after more than a year of being confined to the four corners of our homes, that mission feels even more important than ever,” said John Henderson, brand leader and president of operations at Days Inn. “Whether it’s skydiving in Seattle, hiking through Yellowstone, or parasailing in Daytona Beach, we want our Suntern to have a summer they’ll remember forever.”
The “Suntern” will receive a $10,000 after completing the trip, a $250 daily stipend to spend on fun in the sun, and for the next five years, they’ll enjoy the perks of being a Wyndham Rewards Diamond level member. Not to mention hotel accommodations and ground transportation are completely covered.
Applications are due June 1, and the sun-soaked adventure will begin this August. Applicants must submit a photo and a 300-word essay explaining their dream American road trip itinerary. You must be at least 21 and a US resident to apply.
