A Kid’s Dream Job: Canadian Company Is Hiring A Chief Candy Officer
Someone tell Canada or New Jersey to make every kid’s dream come true and create an exemption to their child labor laws. Canadian candy manufacturer, Candy Funhouse, intends to hire a Chief Candy Officer to work out of its Canadian or New Jersey locations. Where was this job when I was a brimming genius of ten?
The Chief Candy Officer will serve as the head taster for Candy Funhouse, and he or she will be paid $78,000 to taste about 113 candies per day. Well, not just for tasting candy. The CCO will also be expected to run candy board meetings and lead the development of Candy Funhouse’s product strategies.
I still have a notoriously ferocious sweet tooth, but even I cannot fathom tasting 113 candies per day. I wonder if Candy Funhouse will build an internal trampoline park for the CCO so he or she can work off the sugar highs. On another note, I wonder if increased health benefits are part of the deal too. Were I a gambling man, I would start pools on how long before the CCO developed an ulcer, became diabetic, and had his first sugar diarrhea attack. I am sure I could get enough takers for additional pools on monthly and annual weight gains.
I wonder if the CCO will sue Candy Funhouse some day for undisclosed work hazards after so much required candy consumption. Thereafter, we will witness the rise of workplace regulations for candy tasters because Uncle Sam and the many little Sams called states will dump cold water on the fun.
Tongue-in-cheek comments aside, good luck to everyone applying for the dream job! Every kid will be living through you!
