Editorial Assistant

Company Name:StarChefs.com
This position requires candidates to have a US work permit. Please do not apply if you are not legally able to work in the United States.
Applicants to this position must reside within a 90 mile radius of the property.
Position Description:

We are looking for an upbeat, food-savvy, energetic food lover to join the editorial department at StarChefs.com.

The position is comparable to an editorial assistant gig at Gourmet, Food & Wine, etc - the difference is that we are a small, dynamic, not-at-all corporate company that deals with the chefs, restaurants, and the culinary industry, not consumers. What does that mean on a daily basis? It means you'll be an integral part of a hands-on editorial team that works with some of the most exciting and creative aspects of the culinary world.

Responsibilities include:
- preparing the editorial team for tasting trips (includes culinary, travel, and chef research)
- fact checking
- writing and publishing (and possibly re-designing) our bi-monthly newsletter (circulation 60,000)
- answering Ask the Experts questions
- editing bios and interviews
- maintaining our tasting database and interview database
- creating chef-based trivia questions
- recipe permissions
- chef communication for Rising Stars and the International Chefs Congress
- plus numerous autonomous projects that we've got up our sleeves.

What we are looking for:
- at least 1 year of experience in some facet of the culinary industry, preferably fine dining
- a journalism, English, history or related writing-focused college degree
- energy, dedication, and - most importantly - passion for the industry
- the ability to stay highly organized, and to multi-task
- self-editing skills
- an outgoing personality (we are an open office, and you will be talking to chefs and PR reps on a regular basis)
