Travel around Asia, sampling the exotic cuisine of Thailand, Vietnam, China, Japan and Korea, and get paid $10,000. It’s a dream “job” that one lucky person will be selected to do on behalf of Pei Wei Asian Diner. The chain restaurant is searching for someone to follow along with the executive chef as he travels to five countries over two weeks, looking for inspiration for new menu items.
The person chosen will taste their way across Asia while blogging and posting photos and videos about the experience. In return, they get an amazing trip and the tidy sum of $10,000. According to the site, requirements for the job are “a talent for writing, a boundless appetite and willingness to experiment with the unknown, an eye for the unforgettable image and the ability to capture it, comfort both on-camera and behind the lens, a spontaneous spirit but a grounded work ethic, and a passion for Asian cuisine.”
Think you have what it takes? You’ll need to go to the site and create an account, build a profile, and post at least one (and up to five) blog posts, plus up to five photos and one link to a video on YouTube. Five finalists will be selected in early January, with a winner picked on Wednesday, January 19. All profile submissions must be received by Monday, December 20.
