The Requirements To Become One Of Michelin's New Restaurant Inspectors Sound Insane

The Requirements To Become One Of Michelin's New Restaurant Inspectors Sound Insane

There are thankless food industry jobs (looking at you, Chipotle line workers and Starbucks baristas), and then there are ones that everyone envies. If you're into the latter, Michelin — the company behind all those star ratings — has an opening you might be interested in.

The makers of the most highly regarded guidebook in the world are hiring inspectors to anonymously traipse from country to country, reviewing restaurants. But it's not just for folks who love to eat; the gig requires some serious training. Michelin's online job posting lists thirteen different qualifications, each more hard-core than the next: a bachelor's degree in culinary studies, food studies, hotel management, or something equivalent; 10+ years of experience in the hotel, restaurant, or other relevant industry; extensive international knowledge of ingredients, culinary techniques, cuisines, and culinary fundamentals. Michelin inspector Rebecca Burr told CNN, "The ideal candidate is preferably a chef, but we also have some managers, some people that have focused on wine."

If you check all those boxes, consider one more thing: Homebodies need not apply.

As a Michelin inspector, you eat a minimum of 275 restaurant meals every year, which means you're traveling an average of three weeks out of every month. And anonymity is a major thing. Since inspectors are the people who can make or break a restaurant, many adopt pseudonyms to hide their true identities.

Power trip, party of one? Your table is ready.
