Yes, this is a real job posting. “As the Director of Taco Relations, you will be McCormick’s resident consulting taco expert,” the posting says. “You’ll advise and collaborate with the McCormick Creative and Social teams on how to creatively celebrate taco-themed moments, such as National Taco Day, National Margarita Day, and make sure nobody ever misses a Taco Tuesday. You’ll additionally develop engaging taco content for social media to help taco lovers across the country answer hard-hitting taco questions, such as, ‘Which are better, hard shell or soft shell?’, ‘Is there a way to turn any dish into a taco?’, ‘How taco spice flavors can be used to outside of a taco?” and ‘What does the future of tacos look like?’
“The ultimate responsibility for the Director of Taco Relations is to bring together and unify all taco lovers, young and old, in the name of tacos!”

The listed pay is “$25,000/month not to exceed $100,000,” so it’s a four-month gig that pays a hundred grand. You can do the job from anywhere. Though you have to travel o(on your own dime) to “Visit the McCormick HQ in Hunt Valley, Maryland to become familiar with the team, have taco immersion (and eating) sessions, and be provided with an assortment of McCormick Taco Seasoning and other McCormick products.”

And it sounds like you have to be a skilled video creator and kind of a TikTok type to get the job. The posting says, “To be considered for this opportunity, taco lovers across the United States will be asked to develop and submit a creative video showcasing their personality and passion for tacos and why they should be the first-ever Director of Taco Relations. Get creative!”
The total idiots at @mccormickspices somehow think it’s a good idea to drug test candidates for the new, actual job they just posted for "Director of Taco Relations."https://t.co/5R3wDfwyTe pic.twitter.com/e2RKgWh8fJ

But most of us would probably be turned down for the job. According to the posting, applicants must “pass a background check and drug screening.”
