Everybody stop what you're doing and listen up: We have the sweetest news ever to share!
It turns out that Mondelez International is clearly not only in the chocolate business -- it is also in the business of making our gosh dang dreams come true, because it is offering up a position on its team for a professional chocolate taster.
That's right. If you've ever bitten into a Cadbury, Oreo, Prince or Milks bar and fallen instantly in love with the lush, chocolatey profiles of those candies -- and let's face it, who among us hasn't? -- then you probably don't want to pass up the opportunity to snack on those bad boys for a freaking living. And now one lucky person can!
The position is part-time, according to the Linked In posting, and will have the lucky employee working 7.5 hours a week Tuesday-Thursday. Just check out what qualifications Mondelez International requires of its pick:
- A passion for confectionary and taste buds for detection
- Honesty when it comes to giving an opinion
- Eager to try new inventive products
- A communicative personality to build great relationships with your panel
- A firm grasp of the English Language
Unfortunately, we have a bad feeling that we're ineligible for the position, as one of the key responsibilities Mondelez asks of its future employee is to "use a clearly defined vocabulary to describe products and aid in the discrimination between products." We can already foresee ourselves biting into various chocolates and simply losing all of our words as we just drool in pleasure.
If you are a cocoa lover and more eloquent than we know ourselves to be, don't hesitate! Mondelez International is taking applications now and we're sure it's going to be a very competitive process, especially considering that Mondelez offers, according to its Linked In, "financial rewards and resources, including bonus scheme, contributory pension, life assurance, generous holiday allowance and a flexible benefits program."
