It seems like every week, you hear about another too-good-to-be-true job opportunity.
Want to earn $97,000 a year to travel the world and work as a luxury product tester? Or make $100,000 to follow a wealthy family on their vacations, snapping pictures along the way? Heck, you could even serve as a brand ambassador for some of Mexico's most gorgeous resorts; a company called Vidanta was paying $120,000 for a year for that gig.

OK, OK, let's get to the new job opportunities already! Here they are: The chocolate brand Tony’s Chocolonely wants to hire three people -- a Chocotruck captain and two Chocotruck copilots -- to drive its company truck across the United States. (The business is based in Amsterdam, but its chocolate is sold across the U.S.).
"This is not a drill. We repeat, this is not a drill. We’re looking for someone to be the captain of our brand new Chocotruck," Tony's website reads. "Say it with us: choc-o-truck."
In the well-stocked truck, you'll promote the brand, stock inventory (read: chocolate), and visit some pretty cool locations. Among them:
• Austin, Texas (based on the website, it looks like you'll be going to SXSW!)
• Phoenix, Arizona
• San Diego, California
• Los Angeles
• San Francisco
• Berkeley, California
• Eugene, Oregon
• Portland -- this is where Tony's has its U.S. headquarters
If you're hired, you'll start this spring.
"(These are) temporary, salaried (roles) for four months with the possibility to extend and evolve into permanent (positions)," the site says. "(The) salary is very competitive with lots of great perks. Chocolate included."
Say no more.
Depending which gig you land, you'll handle some of the following tasks: driving, giving out samples, event setup and tear-down, tour logistics, duties that include taking care of the truck, dealing with any and all equipment needs, working with the company's partners, posting photos along your route, helping with social media and diving into some paperwork once your tour is complete. You must be 21 or older to apply. Also worth noting: the deadline to submit an application is TODAY, as in, Tuesday, Feb. 12. So if you're interested, fill out your information ASAP!
It is worth noting, if you have the experience, Tony's is also seeking a national sales director, which is a full-time permanent position. The company also has an "open application" listed on its website, which says the following: "If there isn’t a vacancy that suits your experience and ambition, but you are sure that you’re the right fit for Tony’s, you can submit an open application here! Please mention what role you are looking for and what you have to offer Team Tony’s. And keep in mind you need to be eligible to work in the US. We'll get back to you if there's a fit!"
Tony's, by the way, is a pretty socially aware brand. The company's mission is to create awareness about the fact that slaves are currently working on cocoa farms in West Africa, many of whom are children. Tony’s Chocolonely wants to end child labor and modern slavery, so you'll be helping to spread that message, as well.
