Have you found yourself in a social media slump? Do you let hours and days pass you by with nothing to show for it but endless scrolling and double taps? We know just the solution for you. There’s a study happening right now that’ll pay you to ditch Instagram in favour of learning a new skill. If you’re selected, you’ll be given all the resources you need to kick that all-consuming social media habit to the curb.

So here’s what you need to know. The study is being run by HowNow, a UK-based intelligence workplace learning platform. They’re looking for 3 individuals from anywhere in the world to fill the Study Contractor positions.

If you’re chosen, you’ll work remotely for 58 minutes per day. Apparently, that’s how long the average person spends on Instagram. But instead of scrolling, you’ll be dedicating that almost-hour to a new skill. You get to select the skill of your choosing, as long as it’s nothing you’ve learned before, and HowNow will provide all the materials you need to make the dream a reality.

For example, if you decided to learn the guitar they’ll deliver the instrument to you and provide lessons. Not too shabby, eh?

Even better, they’ll pay you £500/month (roughly $865 CAD) to do it! You’ll submit weekly progress reports and at the end of three months the program will assess what skill level you achieved by subbing out scrolling for studying.

The ideal candidate is 18 years or older, a self-starter, ambitious and eager to learn, and of course active on Instagram. If this sounds like you, you can submit an application at the official website right here.

Applications are due by Friday, May 7th, with contractors expected to start on Monday, May 24th.
