This summer job pays you to travel to find and name new paint colors

Behr is offering to send someone across the U.S. and Canada to help them come up with some fresh paint ideas.

Behr Paint is offering up a summer job to travel North America to seek out inspiration for new paint colors.

The company said its first Behr Color Explorer will scour the United States and Canada "to source inspiration from colorful destinations, wild and whimsical adventures and bold events" which they will use to create and name new paint colors.

The job pays $10,000, but Behr says it will also cover flights, lodging and experiences for the lucky color ambassador. The Color Explorer will be expected to blog and take detailed field notes and photos.

Some of the experiences offered include kayaking on Lake Louise in Banff, people-watching at a music festival and taking in the colorful buildings on Rainbow Row in Charleston, S.C.
