Each week talented candidates are chosen for a chance to win their dream job at a prestigious American company. The hopefuls go through several rounds of intense interviews, including challenges where they must prove their knowledge of the company and spending a day on the job executing deadline-oriented tasks. While the candidates are working to prove themselves, rival companies also watch, waiting for the opportunity to make a competing offer to any of the contenders and leaving the applicant to choose whether to take that position or stay in the running in hope of winning the once-in-a-lifetime job opportunity. Lisa Ling hosts.
Candidates vie for positions at prominent companies in this reality series. In the opener, an assistant-manager gig at Palm Restaurant Group is up for grabs. Competing for the job are a vegan-restaurant manager from Brooklyn; a waiter from Moanalua, Hawaii; an unemployed former restaurant manager from Rigby, Idaho; a currently jobless woman from Chicago; and a mom from Mountain Brook, Ala., who owns a catering business.
Five candidates compete for an editorial-assistant position at Cosmopolitan magazine. The contenders include two freelance stylists, a blogger, an unemployed woman and a samples coordinator for an online retailer.
