Justin Timberlake wants you to work for him, it ain’t no lie, so kiss your boring job bye, bye bye.

Well, for a day at least.

LinkedIn is teaming up with Live Nation to offer one lucky person the job experience of a lifetime, working as the social media coordinator for Justin Timberlake’s Man of the Woods Tour for a day.

The winner will travel to Dallas on May 27 to join the Live Nation social media team and help manage the entertainment company’s social media accounts during JT’s concert.

On top of spending the day learning social media strategy from Live Nation, the winner gets behind-the-scenes access to the tour and a VIP seat for the show. That way you can post content on social media and jam out to “Can’t Stop the Feeling” at the same time — like the true multi-tasker you are.

You won’t get paid actual money, but you’ll get a free VIP pass to a Justin Timberlake concert, free hotel accommodations and airfare and seriously cool job experience to put on your resume.

Interested? Of course you are. Keep reading to find out how you can score this gig.
