MANILA – MTV Asia is looking for an individual who can be part of their social media team for 10 days leading up to the World Stage Malaysia outdoor concert. The salary: $10,000, or $1,000 a day.

Residents from the Philippines, Singapore, Malaysia, Indonesia, Vietnam and Thailand who are 18 years old and above can apply for the position of “MTV World Stage Insider,” who will be tasked to handle the music channel’s social media accounts, sharing regular updates and backstage access to fans.

Aside from the $10,000 salary, MTV Asia will also cover the travel expenses of the successful applicant, who will be given the opportunity for an internship with the music channel after the stint.

To join, candidates are required to submit a “social media resume” in the form of a blog or video telling MTV Asia what makes them suitable for the role.

The deadline of submissions is 11:59 a.m. of July 24. The winner will be announced on August 6, and he or she will be on board with MTV from August 7 to 16.

The first MTV World Stage Insider, which the music channel referred to as the “coolest ten-day job,” is Matthew Zachary Liu of Singapore.

“Being the first World Stage Insider for MTV is a lot of pressure because I’m supposed to set the bar… but I enjoyed the process because I learned a lot of things every single day. Every single hour, in fact, I’m learning something new,” Liu said of his experience last year in a video posted on the MTV World Stage website.

“It’s an experience that I will never forget,” he added.
