Listen Now: A Sweet Internship (Salary + Free Candy For A Year)
Looking for a summer job? Here’s something you can really sink your teeth into.
Mars Wrigley is the company behind some of your favorite sweets such as Twix, Snickers and Skittles. Now the sugar powerhouse is looking for someone to make sure its next products taste just as good.
That lucky person will spend eight to twelve weeks at its global headquarters in Chicago. Their days will be spent exploring how each brand is made and doing everything from helping with the candy-making process to social media.
To sweeten the deal, the intern will visit nearby sites where new products are being created and taste them to see if they’re ready for market. And if that’s not good enough the internship comes with the chance to create a personalized batch of gum and mix and match flavors to find the best combinations.
The gig is paid and comes with a signing bonus of a year’s worth of free candy. Applicants must be at least twenty-one and a high school graduate.
You can apply through the company website… and must have a sweet tooth.
