‘I am a young man who strives for success’: Greek backpacker posts VERY enthusiastic job application for Australian farm work – and even includes a topless photo of himself
- Lukas Giakintzis posted a public call out asking for advice about farm jobs
- The Greek/German backpacker wants farm work to extend his Australian visa
- Mr Giakintzis is seeking accommodation and a ‘warm, friendly environment’
- But other backpackers told him farm work was ‘absolutely soul destroying’
A Greek backpacker has tried to secure employment on a farm in Australia by listing his skills online alongside topless photos of himself.
In a Facebook post, Lukas Giakintzis asked about starting his farm work in order to obtain a longer Australian working holiday visa.
The 26-year-old, who is half Greek and half German, said he is ‘full of positive energy and a great work ethic’, and is more than ready to start physical labour.
Mr Giakintzis is seeking accommodation and a ‘warm, friendly environment’ in exchange for three months of his hard work and undivided attention.
Mr Giankintzis call out was accompanied by four photos of himself, including this topless one
‘I am a young man who strives for greatness and success,’ he said on a post in Backpacker Jobs in Australia.
The post was accompanied by four photos of himself posing at different locations, including a topless picture where he is flexing his muscles.
Mr Giankintzis also uploaded this picture with his job application
He said staying in Australia for an additional year is a ‘crucial step’ toward his ‘personal goals and dreams’ and hopes others in the group will resonate with his desire to work in the country.
The soon-to-be traveller is fluent in three languages and holds an international drivers licence.
He said he also comes with basic farm experience and grew up in the Greek countryside, where he was raised to be fit and healthy and developed a strong work ethic.
Mr Giakintzis promised to return the favour and help future backpackers once he was settled in the country.
‘I would appreciate any help and be very thankful for any support, the same way somebody helped you when you began this journey and the same way I will offer my support in the future to the newcomers on this great adventure,’ he said in the post.
While his positivity was widely praised on the post, some people warned him not to set his expectations for farm work too high.
‘Be aware, many farmers are frustrated d**kheads,’ one person wrote back on the post.
Another described farm work as ‘the most soul destroying experience’ of her life.
