Forget your resume and throw out your LinkedIn profile; here’s a gig you can get with tilt-shift and filters.

If you’re addicted to Instagram, start strategizing to be one of four “Grammasters” working for Netflix.

The temporary gig pays $4,000 and includes travel to iconic European and Middle-Eastern film and TV locations — maybe even a few shooting sites from Netflix originals.

How to Travel the World on Netflix’s Tab

To apply, follow Netflix on Instagram and add hashtag #grammasters3 to three of your Instagram shots by March 6.

While the company’s hoping to stumble upon a few good binge-watchers, you’re encouraged to share your passions and personality in your selected images.

You must be at least 21 to enter, and your account must be set to public.

Twenty-five finalists of the inevitable bajillion entries will be notified via Instagram on March 11. Be sure to check your account over the weekend, because if you don’t respond in a timely manner, they’ll move on to another finalist!

If you’re on the list, your next task will be to do a slew of paperwork, and potentially “upload additional photos to your Instagram account that depict a movie inspired theme, location or scene,” with the applicable hashtag. You might also be interviewed by phone or Skype.

As you might have guessed from the hashtag, this is the third year Instagram is sending amateur photogs to shooting locations. Last year’s team of three visited locations around North America.

Our plan: Start banking vacation days at work and take a two-week working holiday on Netflix’s dime. Talk about a side hustle.

Your Turn: Will you apply to be a Netflix Grammaster?
