Dream job? Cadbury wants to pay YOU to eat chocolate all day long

Mondelez International, the owner of Cadbury, Oreo, and Milka, has opened applications for chocolate tasters. No, this is not a drill, now you can cave into that sweet temptation and get paid for it.

The giant food corporation is currently seeking for one full-time chocolate taster, two part-time chocolate tasters, and another part-time chocolate and cocoa beverage taster.

The positions are based at Reading Scientific Services Ltd on the Whiteknights campus of Reading University, with part-time vacancies only 7.5 hours a week. Why didn’t this ever come up when I was in college?

Compensation will be around US$12.45 (AUS$15) an hour to be a sensory panelist, and your task will be to help Mondelez launch new products all over the world by stuffing yourself with all the chocolate you can handle and giving your opinion in return.

The position includes training to develop your taste buds and get you acquainted with the technical vocabulary you need to give them feedback they can use. So no, just saying “delicious” or muttering a muffled “hmm, hmm” is not accepted.

The job doesn’t require any specific experience though, so no need to put in your CV that time you stuck Oreos up your nose when you were a kid. It does obviously require that you don’t have any allergies or diet restrictions.

You think you have what it takes? Ready to go into the heart of paradise and come back with a serious sugar problem?

Here is all the info you need to apply. First, hand over your CV to Mondelez. If they fancy your set of skills, you’ll be required to attend an assessment day which involves tasting up to 10 samples per day and sharing your thoughts with a group of experts.

If you get past that filter, you’ll be asked to go back for a second time for the final stage of selection, in which you’ll have to go through a short competency-based interview.

So let the hunger games begin!
