Get a Job: Use Your Experience Edition
Still floundering at the mercy of the recession? A couple of food-related editorial and teaching jobs have popped up recently, but they're for people with experience:
Mediabistro.com Food Writing Instructor (job listing):
mb LEARN is looking for a dynamic, spirited instructor to teach our Intro to Food Writing class in New York. This class meets for 8 weeks and will take students through the process of drafting food articles and pitches. Ideal candidate will be a highly experienced food writer, editor, or freelancer with a passion for teaching others. No previous teaching experience required.
The real story: Those who can't, teach. Those who can't make money writing about food, teach writing about food (kidding!).
Executive Editor - AOL Food (job listing):
AOL Food needs an experienced editor to lead our team and drive the vision for our future. If you are a creative thinker who is comfortable managing people and a fast-moving editorial process, this is an excellent opportunity to work hand-in-hand with our product team to find ways to use the power of the internet to help busy moms and other everyday cooks take pleasure in preparing delicious, nutritious meals. If you believe that great food has to mean complexity and Cordon Bleu-style standards and you've never set foot in a chain family restaurant, this position is probably not right for you.
The real story: Our insider sources at AOL Food tell us that's it part of "some really exciting expansion plans coming up that'll allow for a much more definitive presence and identity than we can have in our current incarnation." So that could be cool.
