Hotel seeks "professional sleeper" (Credit: Shutterstock)

Breaking news: Every person in the whole entire world is quitting their jobs and moving to Finland.

A Helsinki hotel is currently looking for a “professional sleeper” to bunk down for 35 days and test their rooms for comfort and general snooze-ability.

Hotel manager Tio Tikka told the Associated Press that they are currently looking for a “dynamic person to write a quality blog” about their daily experiences at the Finn Hotel after sleeping in each of its rooms.

So if you are fluent in Finnish, English and Russian (most people are, right?), send your CV to Tikka, posthaste. The job opens May 17 with applications being accepted until the end of April.
