You Could Get Paid $10k to Eat Cheese for a Year

Calling all cheese lovers—a company is looking to pay someone $10,000 to eat the stuff for a year.

Whisps, which makes cheese crisps, is on the hunt for the next "big cheese" to join the company as its "cheese content officer" (CCO).

The new honorary staff member will brainstorm with the brand's marketing team to create content for their social media platforms twice a month.

As part of the package, you'll be sent a year's supply of cheese crisps, which come in seven flavors—parmesan, cheddar, asiago and pepper jack, tangy ranch, nacho, barbeque and tomato basil.

If these don't tickle your tastebuds, fear not as you'll also get to test out new "secret" flavors that will be delivered straight to your front door.

Describing the dream job, Whisps said: "You know you spent all of 2020 on TikTok and Stories. Now let's put your quarantine skills to good use: for one year, you'll join our marketing team to add your special cheesy sauce to our creative.

"Your reward? $10,000 to get noticed and unlimited Whisps for a year. Because what dream is complete without an abundant amount of cheese? We want you to create the cheesiest—and most creative, hilarious, gorgeous, or innovative snack-sized social content on the internet."

The work will equate to roughly 30 hours of commitment over 12 months, and apart from the money, the lucky applicant will get "swag and gear" related to cheese.

Explaining more about the role, Whisps said the applicant will need to: "Collaborate with the Whisps team who will help refine the CCO's content-creating skills through direct feedback. Work with the brand to secure national exposure for the produced work through paid advertising across multiple platforms like Facebook and Instagram."

To be in with a shot of landing the CCO role, you'll need to send in an application form, telling the team your "cheesiest joke."

You'll also need to weigh in on a very serious debate, answering "is a cheesesteak a sandwich?"

Finally you need to wax lyrical about what's the best cheese out there, and why.

You can also send in photos and videos to support your argument, with the panel judging submissions equally on creativity, fun and cheesiness.

Applications open on June 8 and end on July 17, with the chosen one being announced on July 27.

Anyone over the age of 18 from the 50 U.S. states, and the district of Columbia, can apply by clicking here.
