Here's How to Get Paid to Travel Around America Eating BBQ
This article originally appeared on TravelNoire.com.
One thing has been clear over the last few weeks: There are companies willing to pay you to travel.
Bumble, the dating and social networking app that boasts more than 60 million users in 150 countries, announced they are looking for one lucky person to make connections across the globe. Now, Reynolds Wrap is following their footsteps.
The brand, widely known for its aluminum foil, is looking for someone to help find the best barbecue in America.
Reynolds Wrap is bringing back its Chief Grilling Officer position just in time for summer.
The two-week position not only pays you $10,000 to travel to “some of the most notorious BBQ cities,” but they are also letting the lucky person bring a friend along for the journey.
Travel expenses and lodging will be covered for both parties.
Reynolds Wrap’s CGO in 2018 was Oklahoma-native Kari Blanks. As the first person to hold Reynolds Wrap’s prestigious position, she ate her way through Nashville, Memphis, Kansas City, Dallas, and Austin and documented her experience in each city.
This year’s BBQ expert will do the same. You will be responsible for documenting your experience in each city and passing along grilling tips for readers.
To apply, send a photo of you “grilling your favorite recipe” along with 100 words about why you’re the person for the job to careers@ReynoldsWrapCGO.com.
The deadline to apply is June 19 at midnight. Click here for a full job description.
