Get a Job: Apprentice for Jim Lahey of Sullivan Street Bakery
Here's a great job we spotted on Craigslist: an apprenticeship with Jim Lahey of the famed Sullivan Street Bakery and the pizza restaurant Co. (that just got a one-star review in The New York Times). The job description reads:
The right candidate will have a culinary background, be passionate about food, able to follow instructions, anticipate his needs and be proactive in executing tasks. He/she must be responsible, focused, hard working, organized, savvy, and ready to hit the ground running. Knowledge of Manhattan and a willingness to travel are also expected. This is a great opportunity for the right individual to get hands-on experience working at one of the best bakeries in the city, as well as a popular, quality-driven, new bread themed restaurant.
Compensation is "open" — we're not entirely clear what that means, but who cares? Even if there's no money, this is an awesome opportunity to learn a real, artisan trade.
