(Scroll down for video) It might be extremely hard to find a job in the United States, especially a good paying one. Now, Australia has announced that it is offering tourists several high paying jobs, according to press reports in Australia.

Want to get paid $100,000 to take a work holiday? If so Australia has a deal for you.

Tourism Australia has announced a contest called “The best jobs in the world”, in which six winners will each get a job for six months. Positions range from the park ranger to lifestyle photographer. Every job comes with a salary package of $101,000, including living costs.

The campaign is aimed at travelers aged between 18 and 30-years-old, but anyone of any age and from any country can apply either through Facebook or a dedicated website. The application deadline is set for next month in the United States. The winners will be announced in 3 months and the six jobs will begin by mid summer.

Australia is not alone in offering a holiday program work visa. Experts say similar travel programs exist in at least 34 other countries, but not in the U.S. because the U.S. is not involved. Most countries have programs that exclude the United States. Australia is the exception.Mobile video not loading? Click here to view
