(CNN) - A California burger chain is offering a way for you to bring home the bacon while eating it.

Farmer Boys says it is willing to pay someone $1,000 to spend a day testing its bacon.

The company posted an ad for a so-called "bacon intern" on its Instagram page this week.

The post lays out the job, saying, “One day - $1,000 pay - EAT BACON!”

The company calls on anyone wanting the position to post a video or photo onto their Instagram account that explains why they should be the bacon intern.

Farmer Boys says it will announce a winner on Aug. 27.
