They tell you to dream small, and that you can’t make money off big dreams. But come 2019, and you can prove them wrong – here’s a job where you can do what you love and make money off it! Cadbury and Oreo are hiring people to taste their chocolates and you too can apply, until March 8th.
Yes, you read correctly. Mondelez International, that owns companies like Cadbury and Oreo, are looking to hire 12 people to taste their chocolates. They actually want to pay you for a job you’d gladly do for free! The job will be to taste the new products before they go out in the markets of the 150 countries the brands cater to. The part-time job will pay you £10.75 ($14.32) an hour for up to eight hours' work a week, as part of a 12-strong team based in Wokingham, Berkshire, UK.
Requirements? No dietary allergies, fluent English speaking skills, and honesty in your opinion!
You have to be able to understand and communicate the differences in chocolates, no matter how subtle. Can you tell between different textures and how they vary in the way they melt in your mouth? It sounds easy but it sure is work! Some of the deciding factors will be ‘choco challenges,’ which will test your ability to point out the subtle differences in the chocolate. But don’t think this is going to be a piece of cake (or chocolate.) Last year, a similar job at Mondelez International saw over 6,000 candidates apply for the post!
Eight hours of your week will be booked to test the tastiest chocolates, and you will get to decide whether or not they’re the best of the best. That almost sounds like too much pressure – who am I to deprive the world of any kind of chocolate, really? I’d just give them all the thumbs up! The world needs fewer broccolis and more chocolates, am I right?
