You can now become a professional Oreo taste tester. Mondelez international, the parent company for Cadbury Treat & Oreos, is hiring three chocolate tasters and one chocolate and cocoa beverage taster to work at its UK location for about $12 an hour.
Qualified applicants have a passion for confectionary, give honest/objective opinions, have an eagerness to try new products, have a communicative personality and have a firm grasp of the English language.
Per the job description, the chocolate tasters will be in charge of tasting the company’s new products, then reporting back with their honest and objective opinion regarding how they tasted.
Those may seem like pretty simple qualifications for most people’s dream job, but landing the job won’t be a piece of cake, considering that over 1,500 people applied when the company was hiring for it last year. It was also the 5th most viewed job listing on LinkedIn in 2017.
The deadline to apply is February 16, so you might have to forgo those intricate Valentine’s Day plans, in order to make your application stand out. But your Valentine will surely understand, considering that it’s for the prospective chance to get a paid chocolate-eating job. So if you have a major sweet tooth and are in the market for a new job, this could be your perfect opportunity.
