Yesterday, Meredith Brody was let go from her high-profile position as restaurant critic for SF Weekly. Not too long ago, the job ad for her prospective replacement just went up, and as is slowly becoming more expected from food media these days, it's a joint print/online deal:
SF Weekly has an immediate opening for a fulltime critic and blogger to cover the city's restaurants. We want a stylish, opinionated writer who can produce a weekly review for print and multiple daily posts for the SFoodie blog.
But it's not just criticism that the Weekly is looking for. Also from the ad:
The ideal candidate will have an appropriate food background as well as the sources required to break the news and tell the backstories important to the San Francisco restaurant community. This is a salaried staff position with benefits. Interested and qualified applicants should send cover letter, résumé, and clips to: SFfirstname.lastname@example.orgAnd they're off! Suggestions/nominations? Share 'em in the comments.
