Dream Job Alert - you can now get paid to eat bacon

Where do we sign up?

A company in the States, Extra Crispy, is looking for a new member of staff and the criteria for the role is simple. You must LOVE bacon and be happy to eat copious amounts of it. Sounds good, right?


They say that they are looking for a 'freelance Bacon Critic'. The 'Bacon Critic' will spend a three-month appointment 'researching, writing about, obsessing over, and critiquing bacon.'


They are quick to clarify that this is a real paid position.

They go on to specify what the job entails:


"The Extra Crispy Bacon Critic needs to be opinionated and thorough in his or her research, and will be expected to eventually decide which bacon is the best in the country. Other qualifications include serious writing chops, an unmistakable voice, a sense of adventure, and an insatiable hunger—for bacon."

Anyone wishing to apply for the role needs to send a short essay, of 600 words or less, recounting their favourite bacon-related memory to bacon@extracrispy.com by June 24, 2016.
