Does getting paid to eat bacon sound appealing to you? If so, a restaurant chain in California may have just announced your dream job.

California restaurant group Farmer Boys announced their search for the first-ever “Bacon Intern,” the ultimate internship for pork lovers. Internship duties will include one day of pigging out on Farmer Boys’ signature bacon-topped items as well as rating each strip of bacon for flavor and thickness. After a day of going hog wild, the Bacon Intern will walk away with $1,000.

“We’re firm believers in customer feedback and listening to our guests, and we felt that hiring our first ever Bacon Intern would help make our food as pork-tacular as it can be,” said Larry Rusinko, Vice President and Chief Marketing Officer of Farmer Boys. “In addition to taste-testing some of our most popular existing menu items, we also plan to have the intern try some of the exciting items we’re currently developing.”

Pork lovers can apply for the internship position by posting a fun and engaging photo or video on their personal Instagram account explaining why they would be the best Bacon Intern for Farmer Boys. Applicants must tag @FarmerBoysFoods in the post and use the hashtag #FarmerBoysBaconIntern in their caption.

All entries must be submitted by Aug. 20 to be considered.

The selected Bacon Intern will be announced on the company's Instagram on Aug. 27.
