Default Bill Burke/FJCruiser

After picking up Bill Burke's "getting unstuck", I went to his website and signed up for his email list.

See Below!!!!!!!


To members of our email list - a message from Bill regarding an opportunity with
Toyota:

Hello out there in 4-wheel drive land!! Toyota is looking for a few great
drivers with
good people skills for the introduction tour of the new FJ Cruiser.

Those that are chosen will be paid to drive a new FJ Cruiser around a region of
the USA
to many 4-wheel drive events and Toyota dealerships. They will be responsible
for daily
driving and getting to the 4WD events like the TLCA and TTORA as well as other
club
events in that region. Have you been to Paragon, Tellico, Moab, Las Cruces,
Tillamook,
Ma Bell.? You get my point!

There will be a training event and orientation for those that are chosen. It
will cover
all
the basics and how to handle the new and very capable rig. Traveling will
include
camping and hoteling, as well as shaking a lot of hands and safely demonstrating
how
the new FJ Cruiser handles the tough trails around the USA.

This is a lifetime opportunity to get paid to 'wheel!! How cool is that??

Initial qualifications include excellent 4-wheel drive skills as well as an
outgoing/sociable
personality. Please let me know via return email if you are interested and
include your
phone number and best times to reach you. Serious inquiries only please!!

Best regards,
Bill Burke

I did contact them regarding this and Racheal was a little miffed that people are cross posting this into different chat boards. I did read the letter and no where did they request that you not do this(bummer for them). They are trying draw from their client list at this time. I was able to talk my way into getting my resume accepted at this time. Any how for what it is worth they really do not want outside(meaning not from their client list), requests for the job.
Hopefully this thread will not get linked to other chat boards.
That is all for what it is worth. good luck if you try. later robbie

I am not trying to hurt your feeling Shawn or create anything problems for any one. I Just know that Rachel was a little miffed when I contacted her. Maybe I am oversentive to others at times. I would also not like to have any negative feed back on the club if some cross post or links this info on our general forum to another forum. I am only passing on info that was given to me. Yes I am trying to be considered for this position, but this is not why I am asking what I am asking about the cross post.
As for the orginal info, what a great chance for the right people( more than 1) to get a opportunity to repersent Toyota and the new FJ Cruiser. Interesting that Bill Burke(no suprise really as he is the #1 4x4 trainer in the US) is handling this. He wants the chance to pick the crew from people that he has trained. If he does not get enough people then he will open it up to other avenues. At least that was conved to me in the e-mails I have gotten. Their was also another post about how it will be up to a 8 month gig and you could be on the road for 6-7 days at a wack. Hotels and camping, helping people drive the crusier at events. etc
Again I was not trying to be a downier or hurt your feelings. later robbie

I emailed them also, out of curiosity. Rachel's first question was if I could commit to 8 1/2 months. Of course, with a real job I said no.
