Dream Job? Time Inc. Is Looking for a Bacon Critic

Staff Writer
Time Inc.’s newly launched breakfast and brunch vertical is looking for a critic who can tackle the tough job of reviewing bacon

Meat your new dream employer. Time Inc.’s new breakfast and brunch-focused vertical, Extra Crispy, is looking to hire a bacon critic. Yes, you heard that right: This job calls for someone willing to eat and write about deliciously crispy, fatty pork all day. Have you got your resume ready yet?

According to the job listing, qualified candidates “need to be opinionated and thorough in their research, and will be expected to eventually decide which bacon is the best in the country.Other qualifications include serious writing chops, an unmistakable voice, a sense of adventure, and an insatiable hunger—for bacon.”

It’s a (very real!) three-month freelance position that will be snatched up in the near future. Sadly, this is more like a contest than an actual job search, so it’s not likely to beef (or pork) up your resume. But if you put your mind to it, you may find yourself heading for a satisfying and savory career.

If you’re interested and/or salivating right now, head on over to Extra Crispy’s website and send in an essay about your favorite bacon memory to be considered for the position.
