If you've been contemplating a career change and you're obsessed with tacos, we have good news for you: Spice brand McCormick is hiring a Director of Taco Relations for a cool $100,000 paycheck. The six-digit salary comes with some very real (albeit very fun) responsibilities that will last for up to four months. And yes, they'll provide an ample supply of McCormick's taco seasoning along the way. Not too shabby, huh?

The job description for the role outlines duties including keeping tabs on taco trends and sharing your findings with McCormick, executing regular taste tests, developing video content for social media and dreaming up taco recipes. The winning candidate will also need to travel to McCormick HQ to meet with the team and eat lots of tacos (seriously). They're looking for someone with top-notch storytelling skills, social media prowess and a 'teamwork makes the dream work' mentality.

Of course, there's some fine print you'll want to review before submitting your application: You must be at least 21 years old and a resident of the US. You'll also need to be available to sign a contract by the end of August and work up to 20 hours per week from September through December 2021.

If you're ready to quit your job and sign on the dotted line, you'll need to submit a video application that showcases your 'personality and passion for tacos and why [you] should be the first-ever Director of Taco Relations.' This might include sharing your favorite taco recipe, tossing in some taco-themed trivia and debating the perfect taco toppings. Videos should be no longer than two minutes and must be submitted by July 20 by 11:59pm EST.

Start prepping your video – and your resignation letter – you've got just seven days to put your best tacos forward.
