This is a once in a lifetime gig, and the best part, it's a paid internship.

Mars Wrigley is hiring a "'Confectionery Connoisseur Intern" at their Global Innovation Center in Chicago, and it could be you.

Think about it, you've seen the Willy Wonka movies a million times, and for just one summer you wished you could be him. Well, with this paid internship, you could very well be him...for 8 to 12 weeks.

A few of the "key responsibilities" are:

  • Taste test chocolate, gum, and mints.
  • Learn how the candy is made.
  • Create your own chewing gum.

Mars Wrigley also outlined qualities the ideal candidate should possess, such as the ability to "distinguish all five fruity flavors from the Skittles rainbow in a blind taste-test."

That's not as easy as you would think.

There is a slew of other things Mars Wrigley is looking for in their new intern. As of right now, nothing about Fizzy Lifting Drinks and what happens if you drink them.
