Everybody loves bacon. What is not to love? It’s delicious and can be prepared with a variety of foods. I myself am particular to a good BLT. However, sadly bacon isn’t as nutritious as it is delicious, but that shouldn’t matter for a great new dream job that will pay you $1,000 to eat bacon all day.

The famous West Coast-based restaurant Chain, Farmer Boys, has just announced that it’s looking for its first-ever “Bacon Intern” who will be tasting its various bacon-packed menu items for a full day and paid $1,000 for the work. More to specifics, the successful candidate who becomes the “Bacon Intern,” will spend their day trying out the Bacon Boy Cheeseburger, Farmer’s Burger, and Farmer’s Chopped Cobb Salad, all while rating each bacon strip for both flavor and thickness.

Larry Rusinko, vice president and chief marketing officer of Farmer Boys, said in a press release, “At Farmer Boys, we’re firm believers in customer feedback and listening to our guests, and we felt that hiring our first-ever Bacon Intern would add another layer to that philosophy and help make our food as pork-tacular as it can be. In addition to taste-testing some of our most popular existing menu items, we also plan to have the Bacon Intern try some of the exciting items we’re currently developing.”

If you’re interested in being the new “Bacon Intern,” then you have until August 20 to apply. The position is based in Southern California, so if you’re from further away you can still apply, but you’ll be solely responsible for getting yourself there for the day. In order to apply, just upload a “fun and engaging” picture or video of yourself to your personal Instagram, then explain why you’d be the person for the internship. You will also need to tag @farmerboysfoods and use the hashtag #farmerboysbaconintern in your caption. The winner will be announced on the 27th of August. 

Good luck!
