Dream Job Alert: Time Inc Is Now Hiring a Bacon Critic

Your job hunt has finally come to a close. Time Inc.—the prestigious publishing company behind magazines including Fortune, Sports Illustrated and, of course, Time—is looking for someone who can be the company’s bacon journalist.

The company has just launched a new, breakfast-themed website called Extra Crispy, and what breakfast-themed website could possibly operate with any sort of credibility if it didn’t have its own Bacon Critic? Are you the right person for the job? Here’s a brief peak at what they are looking for:

Extra Crispy is seeking a freelance Bacon Critic to cover the bacon beat, spanning bacon’s role in food, drinks, and culture. Our Bacon Critic can live anywhere in the U.S. and will spend a three-month appointment researching, writing about, obsessing over, and critiquing bacon. Yes, this is a very real paid freelance position we’re looking to fill in the near future.

The Extra Crispy Bacon Critic needs to be opinionated and thorough in his or her 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.
