The Golf Blog says: Holy cow! Adidas Golf is looking for 2 people to play golf around the world in extreme conditions, and then video it and share the experiences on Twitter, Facebook, and YouTube. Afterwards, the winner of the adventure may get hired by Adidas Golf for a full time or part time job. Sounds like fun!

Here’s the job listing on Yahoo: “Interview Process for Social Media Catalyst Position. Two applicants will be selected for the job interview. The interview will take place during adidas Golf’s “Wear in the World” adventure, a 50-day trip with job candidates traveling to various countries to play golf in some of the world’s most extreme climates. Candidates will be evaluated on their ability to effectively capture video content of the trip, communicate brand messages, interact with adidas Golf tour PRO’s and build a base of followers through various social networks including Twitter and Facebook.

“After the 50 day adventure, the candidate who is determined to be the most qualified in the sole discretion of the company, may receive an offer for employment with adidas Golf at its Carlsbad , California headquarters.
