A company is paying five people $1,500 to take naps
Yes, this may very well be your "dream job." The team at Each Night wants to pay you to take naps for thirty days. Applicants from all countries are welcome, as long as they're over the age of 18. Their ultimate goal is to hire five professional nappers, each paid $1,500 for one month of work.
Each Night describes their application as follows: "We are sleep obsessed, and our main goal at eachnight is to give you all the assets and information you need to get better sleep each night. So, we wanted to test a few theories behind the pros and cons of napping to provide our community with some valuable insight. We know that in general different length naps have different benefits, but we are keen to put this to the test, and we need your help!"
They then continue to explain: "The team of ‘Nap Reviewers’ will need to be prepared to start work straight away, as well as being committed to napping everyday for 30 days. Applicants must be able to sleep alone during the testing period to ensure that the naps are undisturbed. All applicants must also have strong English writing skills in order to accurately carry out the reviews of their naps and follow any relevant instructions."
You're not going to be left to your own devices to keep a journal and tell them about your naps after the fact. Instead, you'll be coached through every nap you take -- with a video conference call before and after.
Their final words on the matter are as follows: "Over the course of 30 days, our dedicated nappers will be required to take part in a variety of experiments testing out theories such as the best nap duration for feeling refreshed, the effects of napping on overall levels of fatigue, and the effects of napping on memory, motivation and productivity. The individuals will be required to take part in a video call before and after each experiment, to ensure they understand their tasks fully, and to complete a verbal questionnaire detailing their experiences and results. In return for their participation, each ‘Nap Reviewer’ will receive a payment of $1500 at the end of the testing period."
There are surrly several applicants fighting to be paid to sleep, as this is a worldwide promotion. The application just take a couple minutes of your time, however, so why not give it a try? Perhaps you could be paid to sleep.
