Get paid to write

Want to literally bring home the bacon? You could get paid to eat, write and dream about your favorite crispy treat.

Even better: You’ll get to work from home.

Extra Crispy, Time Inc.’s new website about all things breakfast and brunch, is hiring a Bacon Critic.

Yes, a Bacon Critic. This is a real job.

This writer will spend three months being the envy of the journalism/foodie world — or just America in general.

Bacon Critic Job Perks

To truly capture the spirit and art of America’s favorite mealtime, you obviously need to study bacon.

In addition to its clear upsides (living, breathing and writing about bacon), this three-month freelance gig is remote; no big, stressful move necessary.

At the end of your tenure, you’ll declare “America’s Best Bacon” — and have the most interesting resume around.

Bonus (or challenge): You get to negotiate your pay.

How to Apply to Be a Bacon Critic

Who doesn’t love some healthy (or artery-clogging) competition?

If you’re over 21 and want to apply, submit an essay detailing a bacon-related memory (be it funny, quirky or engaging) in under 600 words, along with your name and phone number, to Bacon@ExtraCrispy.com.

This contest is open until June 24.

In the meantime, we Penny Hoarders will be eagerly awaiting an influx of bacon news and information.

Your Turn: Will you apply to be a bacon critic?
