Paid Internship With Mars Wrigley Includes Year's Worth Of Candy

Say, are you in the market for a paid internship? A nice 8-12 week program through which you can get a glimpse into the wide, wonderful world of confectioneering? Mars Wrigley has just such a position open, and it comes with a "signing bonus" of a year's worth of candy.

We're no stranger to flavor-related dream jobs around these parts— such as being a Chocolate tester, yogurt-flavor finder, chicken-nugget connoisseur, or gin taster—but this Chicago-based position comes with the double advantage of being a short-term commitment and supplying a long-term amount of candy. Should you throw your hat into the slightly sticky ring, know that your potential responsibilities include:

  • Lots and lots of sampling, of the "chocolate, gum, and fruity confections" Mars Wrigley ships around the world
  • Travel to various manufacturing sites "to understand how the world's most beloved candy brands are made"
  • Personalizing your own gum (the snozzberries taste like snozzberries, just a suggestion)
  • Working with other interns to coordinate the global Mars Volunteer Program
  • Lots of social media and public relations duties
  • This is the second year the company has offered the World's Sweetest Internship Program. The big difference this year is that the role includes working on the company's #BetterMoments initiative, which seems to involve using brand activations "to make the city, and world, smile."

    If this seems like your bag and/or you want a year's worth of candy real bad, you can apply here; the internship will run from late May through August.
