Dream job alert: company is looking for “curd nerd” to discover, and eat, the best cheese curds in Wisconsin

If you are looking for a job change that involves paid travel and being compensated for consuming as many (free) cheese curds as your heart desires, then do we have the gig for you!

Curds (for those who are unfamiliar) are bite-sized nuggets of curdled milk, usually deep fried with a side of ranch or marinara dressing.

The company EatStreet is currently seeking a “curd nerd” to travel across Wisconsin along with EatStreet’s social media team, to find the absolute best cheese curds in the state from the 15th to the 29th of October — which is National Cheese Month.

After consuming a variety of styles (battered with Wisconsin beer as well as a topping on poutine for example) they will then decide which curds outshine the others.

Did we mention you will get paid hourly for all this cheesy research? The curd nerd will bring in $12.50 for every hour they devote to the campaign with a maximum total of $1,000 over two weeks.

If this sounds like something you are perfect for, you can submit an application to EatStreet before October 2 by answering the following questions:

“Why do you want to be EatStreet’s curd nerd?” along with “What unique skills and abilities do you bring to the table?”

The ideal candidate is a Wisconsin resident with a “big personality and a passion for storytelling.” In addition, you should also be willing to share your adventures on social media — and if you are a true curd nerd, your friends and fans may be none the wiser!
