Not too many people work in a profession they would call their "passion." Your dream job would not have you prying your eyelids open during weekly meetings, taking luxurious bathroom breaks, counting tiles in the breakroom ceiling, or sneaking out a few minutes too early to escape the 40-hour-a-week drudgery.
But if you're up to a new challenge this year, the retail store B&M just might have the job for you (unless you're a vegetarian). Keep reading.
B&M posted a job opening for a "Chicken Nugget Connoisseur" on the company's website, according to Metro. The website is calling on all hungry individuals with a bona fide passion for chicken nuggets to provide feedback on fresh and frozen food products. The role appears simple: eat and talk about what you ate.
But not all chicken-tasters are created equal. To be a cut above the rest, applicants must have "relevant experience," including a ferocious appetite for chicken nuggets. Qualified experience, according to B&M's website, means "getting the 20 share of nuggets from McDonald's and keeping them all for yourself." If you are the first one in the kitchen when someone shouts "Cake!" you're also qualified for this coveted position; continue reading.
The qualifications for Chicken Nugget Connoisseur all sound obscure, vague and very likely applicable to most of the human population (don't kid yourself). Who hasn't gone to an event because there would be free food? Or entered into a lengthy debate on curly fries versus regular fries? This job is for the Everyman, the poor soul concealed by gray cubicles and photocopies.
If hired as Chicken Nugget Connoisseur, you'll take on a temporary, part-time role eating nuggets. Although B&M does not offer a benefits package, medical, dental, paid time off, and the likes, you can say, at least, that you were paid in B&M vouchers to eat chicken nuggets.
Successful candidates, as per the company's site, will receive monthly vouchers to spend at the store. B&M is currently only accepting U.K. applicants who submit a CV and cover letter explaining why they deserve this opportunity.
