We're back in mahi season and, if you're like me, it's a tough time.
According to Trademe, heaps of people feel that way, with job viewings on their site reaching a peak in the last week of January. So, they’ve sussed some dream gigs that would actually have you keen af to get to work.
One of the straight-up dream jobs is a friggin' 'Wicked Wing Taste Tester' for KFC. It's only a five-day contract, but those five days would be spent chowing down on the fast-food delicacy and getting paid for it.
“KFC is looking for a crispy chicken connoisseur to travel around Auckland KFC stores, tasting the Colonel’s finest Wicked Wings to ensure they are always fresh, crispy and delicious,” the listing reads.
“The successful applicant will get a sneak peek into the iconic bucket and what goes into making deliciously crispy KFC Wicked Wings, before heading out around Auckland KFC stores.”
If your New Year's resolution was all about eating healthy, then that's probably not the job for you. You might be more inclined to get the crowd at a Super Rugby game nice and rowdy.
Fijian Drua is looking for a 'Chief Hype Officer' to work a couple of days in February. If you're a fan of them (or just hate the Blues), this is one sick opportunity.
"The ideal candidate will be someone who can chant, sing, stomp and cheer, and ensure the roar of fans will leave the Blues trembling in their footy boots this February," the listing reads. "This Hype Queen/King will work closely with the Fijian Drua, owning the pre-game hype and generating buzz with the crowd."
"They will act as the ultimate team mascot - and give the Fijian Drua team and its fans an unforgettable experience."
If you're not quite ready for a career change but do need a break, suss yourself 24 days off from just six public holidays using this annual leave hack.
Good luck with your applications (but not really because I NEED these on the CV).
