If you’re a soon-to-be college graduate and would rather spend the next year traveling the country than looking for a typical 9-5 job, Planters Peanuts has an exciting opportunity you may want to check out.
After his death and eventual rebirth at the Super Bowl last year, Mr. Peanut is back and is looking for a chauffeur to drive him from coast to coast in Planters’ NUTmobile: a 26-foot-long peanut on wheels.
Open to recent college graduates, the Planters Peanutter job includes — among other duties — driving the Planters NUTmobile, pitching media to traditional media outlets and bloggers/influencers, securing and executing events and managing social media.
You’ll also be participating in volunteer opportunities, like serving at food banks and delivering meals to the elderly. You’ll be traveling to a new city every week while, of course, enjoying all the Planters Nuts your heart desires.
To be considered for the job, you must have a bachelor’s degree, preferably focused in business, PR, marketing, journalism, communications or media management. You also need a valid driver’s license and, of course, must be comfortable with daily road travel.
As part of a team of three, you should also be outgoing, creative, friendly and have an appetite for adventure. The full-time paid position is for one year. You have until Feb. 19 to apply.
If you’d rather drive a giant hotdog around than a peanut, Oscar Mayer hires “Hotdoggers” every year that, if accepted, get a chance to drive their one-of-a-kind 27-foot Wienermobile to travel and “meat” Oscar Mayer fans around the country.
The Hotdoggers are employed as a paid, full-time employee of Oscar Mayer for one year between June 2021 and June 2022. The gig also includes benefits (or bun-efits, as the company calls them).
While submissions have already closed for the gig this year, you can likely expect it to reopen in January 2022, so you may want to keep a lookout early next year.
