EatStreet, a Wisconsin-based company, wants to hire someone to tour The Badger State on an all-expenses-paid trip for two weeks beginning Oct. 15, which is National Cheese Curd Day. And, it will pay you $1,000.

The assignment, if you choose to accept it, is to travel from Madison to Milwaukee and other points in search of the best cheese curds.

“This arguably is the most important position we’ve hired for. As our curd consultant you have to be on your game. You mean something to the people, to the state,” said Matt Howard, EatStreet CEO and co-founder, in a news release. “This is your time to shine — perhaps from curd grease — but that’s OK.”

Anyone can apply for the job as long as you eat cheese and love social media.
