What would you consider to be the ideal job? Everybody is going to have their own ideas, but one thing is certain, they often have a horror story or two that they are trying to run from as well. Every once in a while, you may hear about the ‘perfect job’, and today is the day.
Could you imagine moving to the Domino’s headquarters in Queensland, Australia? It would seem like a dream come true to anyone who loves pizza, and it seems as if they might just offer more than a dream, they may just make it a reality.
The job was promoted on LinkedIn with applications being requested for an official ‘Chief Garlic Bread Taste Tester’. The official offer for the position states:
“You butter believe it! We’re looking for someone a little bit crunchy, but mostly warm and soft on the inside, to help taste test our World-Famous Garlic Bread at Domino’s Headquarters in Brisbane.”
Dominos opened things up to reveal exactly what they want. They said that the candidate should have, “Never met a carb they didn’t like; Does not identify as a vampire; Understands the perfect ‘crunch to softness’ ratio; Is passionate about food, innovation and having fun.”
As far as experience is concerned, the candidate should have the following:
“(A) Minimum of 5 years’ experience in garlic bread consumption; a detailed understanding of the pizza and garlic bread relationship; working taste buds; burned their fingers at least once not being able to wait for the garlic bread to cool down; a history of reviewing other people’s food choices (solicited and/or unsolicited).”
To apply, applicants must: “Complete the survey and tell us in 200 words OR in a 30-second video why you are the perfect candidate for the job. Get creative! But no loafing around – applications close Monday 7 October 2019, so be quick!”
We don’t all love our job but it’s nice to know that there is a position out there that offers the joy of trying all the garlic bread we could eat.
