Want an easy way to make this summer your best one? Snag a gig as Hotels.com's official "Poolhop" and travel to six hotels across the U.S. in August, all on the company's dime. For those of us who love nothing more than snapping some Instagrams by the pool, it's truly the perfect job. Better yet? It pays a $10,000 stipend.

As Hotels.com puts it in the job description, "The Poolhop's responsibilities are simple; travel to some of the most incredible hotel pools across the country, sip on fruity drinks, snap some photos, sport a hotel robe, and report back to reward-loving Hotels.com fans."

Oh, and by the way, you won't be staying at little budget motels on the side of the highway. The hotels the lucky Poolhop will be visiting are Hawaii's Four Seasons Hualalai, the Mondrian Los Angeles, the SLS Las Vegas, Colorado Springs' Garden of the Gods Club and Resort, Brooklyn's William Vale Hotel, and Miami's National Hotel.

Interested sun worshippers must be 21 years of age and a resident of the U.S. Head to this page to learn more before the June 25 deadline.
