We don’t often cover Canadian jobs but my insane admiration for that country just got fueled up again. In the city of Richmond, B.C., the tourism board is offering a post for a food blogger.
WOW. A steady gig writing about food, theoretically sampling a lot of it, in hopes that more tourists will come to Richmond. This is a great example of an organization putting out its own content to achieve a marketing goal instead of waiting for PR placements from other media outlets. Canadians are smart, and really, really nice.
Other jobs around North America:
1. Not a chef but live and die for Restaurant Week and know your way around a press list? NYC PR firm looking for an account supervisor for its food-related clients. Includes lots of responsiblity helping with new business development and client interaction.
2. Orcas Island is part of the San Juan Islands in northwestern Washington. Doe Bay Cafe needs a naturalist executive chef with 5 years experience to head its seed-to-table restaurant. Part of a 38-acre resort.
3. Not sure if this actually falls under “culinary” but it certainly falls under “interesting.” Garden Protein International (a Canadian company!!) produces and markets a protein substitute for meat made from vegetables. Don’t ask me how. They need a PR Manager to spread the good word.
