Apparently “Tonight Show” host Conan O’Brien had mentioned at one point that he’d applied for a job with Mrs. Fields decades ago – and didn’t even receive a rejection notice. With O’Brien now on the outs with employer NBC, the cookie company says it’s ready to finally give him a job.
“At the age of 22 Conan applied for a job at Mrs. Fields, but sadly never received a call back,” explained John Lauck, President of Mrs. Fields. “We want to officially call you back, and make amends for what we now know was a huge oversight in talent recruitment.”
Mrs. Fields states that O’Brien has his pick of working at any of their over 300 stores nationwide, or at their corporate offices in Salt Lake City, UT. Details of the position as well as salary are pending negotiations and interest from O’Brien.
In addition to its iconic cookie franchise operation, Mrs. Fields Famous Brands also owns TCBY, “The Country’s Best Yogurt.”
