Here’s something of interest: Eater, a/the food blog of record in New York, which has spawned satellites in LA (and soon San Francisco), is planning on launching Eater Chicago in November. This according to a job posting in Mediabistro for editor of the same. We can’t really link to it because of registration issues and their weird URLs, but here it is, in its entirety, minus pretty formatting:
Publication or Company: Eater.com
Industry: Online/New Media, Restaurants & Hospitality
Benefits: Bonuses, Flexible Hours, Health
Job Duration: Full Time
Job Location: Chicago, IL USA
Job Requirements: Passionate about Chicago and the vast Chicago restaurant & nightlife scene? Eat out 7 nights a week and get star-struck by chefs? Eater.com is looking for editors with ample local knowledge to contribute wit and charm to its upcoming blog title Eater Chicago (coming in November!). More specifically, we’re seeking restaurant junkies and neighborhood savants to write multiple posts a day on restaurant, food and drink news in the city of Chicago and its surrounding neighborhoods. Blogging experience is preferred but not required; same goes for industry writing experience. Positions are both part- and full-time, and compensation is competitive. Interested candidates should email us several paragraphs about themselves, including a paragraph about the neighborhood you call home in the Chicago area. If you have a blog or website of your own, links are invited.
