Attention Chocolate-lovers, Nutella Is Looking for Taste Test Volunteers!
Where do we sign up?
Have you ever dreamed of getting paid to eat chocolate? What a time to be alive! The iconic hazelnut spread is actually bringing you one step closer to your dream job!
According to The Local Italy, The Ferrero company which produces Nutella, Ferrero Rocher, Kinder Bueno, and Tic Tac is currently looking for 60 “sensory judges” who will get to taste their products. The job opening was published in Openjobmetis for Soremartec Italia, which is Ferrero’s research and development company.
It sounds like a good deal, right? But this also raises the question, “Am I qualified for my dream job?”
This is the first time ever that Ferrero is hiring “non professionals” to do the taste tests. Additionally, you just have to have no allergies and that you are familiar with using a computer. And what better way to make this experience more gastronomical than spending a few months in Ferrero’s headquarters—located in Alba, Italy, a land known for its white truffles!
The lucky volunteers will be tested by a three-month training course that is scheduled this coming September. This training course will help the volunteers in sharpening their sense of taste and smell—and the correct terminologies to describe their reactions.
By the end of the training, Ferrero will pick 40 recruits for two tasting panels. These finalists will be offered part-time positions that would allow them to seek other work on the side. Where do we sign up?
