No joke, when I was between 5-10 years old, my dream job was to drive the Oscar Mayer Wienermobile. It’s not something you can really go to school for or pursue, so that dream kind of faded over time, but it has suddenly come back to me.

That is because it seems like a real possibility now.

Oscar Mayer is looking for “Hotdoggers.” The year-long “Hotdogger” gig is for “outgoing, creative, friendly, enthusiastic, graduating college seniors who have an appetite for adventure,” an online job posting says. To cut the mustard, candidates need a bachelor’s degree, preferably in public relations or similar fields.

Even if you meet those qualifications, it might be a longshot. 12 positions are available and less than 1% of applicants were hired in past years.

Aspiring “Hotdoggers” can apply on Oscar Mayer’s website before Jan. 31.
