We’re Looking for Interns!30 May 2009, Posted by food in
Kitchen Elves are wonderful, but they tend to burn things.
Yes, they are very handy for washing dishes, peeling potatoes, etc., but they are costing us a fortune in melted spatulas, burned pots, and scorched aprons. They also can’t type to save their lives, so we’re looking for some human help:
Will assist with the management of our editorial calendar (scheduling & some editing), as well as communication with media, food and wine professionals. Some light office duties may also be included.
Our editorial internships require a typo-sensitive eye (we are mental about typos) and an excellent grasp of the English language. We have pretty strict editing standards, so the more conscientious you are (nice word for anal-retentive) the better.
You will also be communicating with food and wine pros of all calibers, so we are looking for someone who is polished and professional. Pleasant also helps, as does knowledge of WordPress and general HTML code.
Please send a resume and cover letter to editor AT culinarymedianetwork.com.
Video Editing Assistants
Will assist with production and distribution of our numerous food, wine and travel videos. Knowledge of FinalCut Pro and familiarity with online video outlets essential.
Please send a resume and cover letter to chefmark AT culinarymedianetwork.com.
Our internships are unpaid at this time, but if you are eager to work with a passionate group of gourmands who are blazing a new trail in the world of cuisine, and where you won’t have to get coffee for anyone (or spend the day in front of the copier), this could very well be the place for you.
As we are a virtual company, you can be located just about anywhere. Having said that, we would prefer someone based in NYC for hands-on help one or two days a week at “HQ.”
Note: We are also seeking cookbook and food book reviewers. If you read either with the kind of passion normally reserved for seedy romance novels, please send your credentials and a writing sample to editor AT culinarymedianetwork DOT com.
We are looking for dedicated, professional, energetic people for whom the pursuit of excellence is standard operating procedure. A sense of humor bordering on salacious is also required.
