“This is a sweet job!”
A Canadian candy company is advertising for someone who will eat candy all day — and they’ll pay them 2.8 million baht a year.
Candy Funhouse is advertising for a professional taste tester, officially known as a Chief Candy Officer.
The company, which sells candy online, says you can even work from home — though sadly for Thais, you have to be a resident of Canada.
The annual salary works out to about 230,000 baht a month.
The main duty is to taste candy to see if it’s good enough to sell.
The ad was posted on Linked In and Instagram, saying applicants had to have good taste buds and be above the age of 5.
The job also comes with free dental care.
