Going on a spree of binge-eating cheese curds is, for a certain type of person, heaven. If that’s you, the “Curd Nerd” job is likely your dream job, and now you have a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to spend two weeks eating as many curds as you possibly can. EatStreet is looking for someone who loves cheese curds to help with its new social media campaign, which requires whoever fills the position to travel across Wisconsin eating as many curds as possible. The point? Find the best cheese curds in all the land.

If you’re lucky enough to be chosen as EatStreet’s new “Curd Nerd,” you’ll be paid $12.50 per hour (a maximum of $1,000), plus all expenses paid for travel around Wisconsin at local establishments. And yes, the stipend covers your meals, so there will be no excuse to skip out on the extra curds.

According to the application, EatStreet is looking for “someone with a big personality and a passion for storytelling, to be the face of our Curd Campaign and share their experiences through social media, video and more!” You must also be a resident of Wisconsin.

EatStreet’s Curd Nerd applications are open until October 2, and the job itself runs from October 15 to October 29. To apply, tell EatStreet why you want to be the Curd Nerd, and explain any unique skills and abilities you may have that qualify you for the job.
