The job description reads:
We are looking for the world’s first and only Chief Candy Officer! This opportunity is work-from-home with the option to work out of either Toronto, Canada (Canadian Residents) or Newark, New Jersey (American Residents), paying up to $100,000 annually to lead the “FUNhouse” Candy Strategy.
Candy Funhouse retails various kinds of candy online, including licorice and chocolates. It received a brilliant response from people of all ages to the job offer that went viral online with several clips of children applying for it.
Its CEO, Jamil Hejazi, was unfazed by the number of job applications, and remarked,
Imagine your best memories around candy, and having that every day at work.
He denied the rumors of applicants having to eat 3,500 pieces of candy a month, and said, “That’s 117 a day, that’s too many”.
A similar offer was previously made by an American company called FinanceBuzz to watch 13 different horror movies for $1,300. However, the viewer, working as a ‘Horror Movie Heart Rate Analyst’ would have to have their heart rate recorded in the process.
Besides receiving a Fitbit to record their heart rate, the employee would also get a $50 gift card to cover the expenses of watching the selected movies.
