    A Connecticut woman is a finalist for the best job in the world contest.

    A Bethlehem woman hopes to be the one to “Good Day from Down Under.” 

    Sandra Crane, 21, is one of 50 people competing for “The Best Job in the World.” 
     
    She applied for the position of “Island Caretaker” from Tourism Queensland, Australia, along with 34,683 other applicants from around the world.
     
    The job pays $150,000 Australian, which converts to $98,820 in U.S. dollars.
     
    So what makes Sandra Crane a good fit for the job, the UConn student says she's a 6th semester marketing major and she wants to become a marketing manager of a travel agency when she graduates. 
     
    Crane studied abroad at James Cook University in Queensland, Australia in fall 2007. And, she's certified in SCUBA.
     
    It is a six-month gig that begins on July 1 and ends on Dec. 31. The lucky chosen on will get a schedule of events and activities during their stay on the islands of the Great Barrier Reef. They’ll report their impressions of the experience in a weekly blog, video diary and photo gallery, the Daily Campus reports.
     
    This week, Crane will fly to Los Angeles for a series of press events. Next week, Tourism Queensland will select the finalists.
     
    The applicant who receives the highest number of votes by 11:59 p.m. on March 24 will receive the 11th Wild Card spot and take part in the final interview event.
