Even if you are happily employed, every once in a while you run across a job posting that may be worth throwing your name in the hat for. Surprisingly, spice manufacturer McCormick (NYSE:MKC) recently posted a position that might grab your attention. If you love tacos and know your way around social media sites, this just might be your dream job. On a Motley Fool Live video episode recorded on July 14, Fool contributors Toby Bordelon and Brian Withers discuss McCormick’s search for a Director of Taco Relations.
Toby Bordelon: Well look, I want to talk briefly about something they released, I think it was yesterday. Where we talked about this on The Wrap yesterday, Brian. They’re looking for a new team member, someone to be the Director of Taco relations, which seems fun. You get like $25,000 a month for up to four months. It’s an awesome pay for what seems to be a fun job.
This is like a PR stunt, but it’s getting people talking about this. When you look at things like the labor crunch, is this the way to get people excited about the company as a place to work potentially? Is this a way to give you were talking about the brands that help deal with some of those increased advertising costs we’re seeing. Whatever it is, it’s created a little bit of buzz at least on Twitter and social media about, you could be the director of taco relations and travel the country talking about taco and taco seasonings, which seems fun if you need something to do for the next few months.
I would really like one of our viewers to apply. So if you’re listening and this seems like a good idea, do that, and if you get the job, we can interview you on Fool Live. I think that would be awesome. We could get an inside look at what the Director of Taco Relations does day-to-day. But a great little company, fun company, a lot going on because something a lot of people don’t talk about a lot, and maybe this is getting people to talk more about a relatively boring company compared to some of the big tech stuff we talked about more often.
Brian Withers: Toby, I think we’re going to have to brush up our TikTok skills for this Director of Taco Relations job. It’s very socially forward, and I know you’ve appeared in a TikTok video, so you are a little ahead of the game than I am.
Toby Bordelon: Yeah. I got to up my game though. I had someone else, I was in someone else’s video. I think you’re going to need some make a really big splash if you want to be taco relations guy here, I feel like we can get a lot of applications.
Brian Withers: Yeah. It could be quite creative with this one. That sounds like a lot of fun.
