Victoria Foodblogger Needed

Shakespeare blogging

Yes, looks like a paid gig (or I wouldn’t post it). Got this from Craigslist, via Twitter. EAT is very high-profile, and they do make money, so ask for some. The “Internship” is a red flag, but they do put a dollar down, so obviously they’re open to negotiation, depending on what you can do for them.

EAT Magazine is looking for a food blogger for our website to write about Victoria events and news. This would include attending new store and restaurant openings, winemaker dinners, following-up on press releases, assessing new product launches, finding industry news, being proactive and keeping an ear to the ground for what’s new.

The right person will have:

• A strong network of contacts within the Victoria food, hospitality and restaurant scene
• Good writing skills
• Flexible hours (many events happen at night and on weekends)
• A love of food
• Posses a deep understanding and knowledge of all things culinary
• Good people skills
• Basic camera skills
• Wine knowledge would be an asset
• A desire to build a writing career

Note: this not a full-time job. It is also not a posting for a restaurant critic.

Please write the editor expressing your interest. Tell us a bit about yourself and include the reason why you’d like to be an EAT blogger, your expectations, samples of your writing and your resume.

  1. Well, good luck! Emailing the editor when you get a bounce from Craigslist is all you can do. I think it got more exposure than they were expecting (I rt’d it a couple of times, and I have 6500 Followers).
