“Well, I always say that if you eat what you love and drink what you love, your brain will find a way to make them go together. And frankly, if you’re sticking with beer and barbecue, it’s gonna end pretty well for you.” and on Tuesday Reynolds Wrap announced it will be hiring a “Chief grilling officer” whose sole duty is to travel the country tasting delicious barbecue!
In life, we need to eat and we need money to eat. So how about combining the two with this dream job. You travel the country, eat as much delicious barbecue as you can, you take pictures, post reviews document your experiences on Facebook and social media…. And you get paid to do it!
That’s right, although this isn’t a full job you will be paid a stipend of $10,000 for your two week walkabout. Your lover comes for free, or you can take anyone you choose to help you on your barbecue fuelled journey. Part of the deal is to identify best grilling techniques and to share those techniques, tips and tricks on social media. Better still your travel and lodging is taken care of so the little wad of notes is yours to do what you want with.
Here’s how Reynolds described the ideal candidate for the job: “If you don’t mind being paid to taste test some of the most delicious grilled dishes from across the country, posting envy-inducing pictures of your finds and falling asleep every night dreaming about your next meal, then you could have what it takes to be Reynolds Wrap’s, Chief Grilling Officer.”
To apply for the CGO position, submit 100 words about why you think you’d be the ideal fit, plus a picture of your favourite grilling recipe to ReynoldsCGO@gmail.com between July 31 through August 13.
