For many people, the idea of being able to eat chocolate all day while getting paid for it sounds like a total dream . Thanks to Mondelez International , the minds behind Cadbury treats and Oreo cookies , that dream is now officially coming true.
Four new roles have opened up at the company, including “Chocolate & Cocoa Beverage Taster” and “Chocolate Taster.” All of the positions are paid and part-time, totaling at just 7.5 hours per week and including necessities like holidays and pension. Though not quite every single day will be a cheat day with this job, you’ll still be getting paid to eat chocolate.
Don’t hand in your two weeks just yet, though. The company is asking for applicants to not only be able to provide “objective and honest feedback,” but also to collaborate with a panel in order to forge an agreement on taste, to accurately describe the taste of the treats using strong vocabulary skills, and to understand the company’s ethical requirements, therefore ensuring quality.
They list “a passion for confectionery and taste buds for detection” as well as “honesty” and a “firm grasp of the English language” as necessary qualifications for the job.
