Austin Lifestyle Blogger

Description:

Austin Lifestyle Blogger

Do you know Austin inside and out? Can you review a trendy new restaurant on Monday, snap photos for a walkthrough of a new hotel on Tuesday, interview a local celebrity on Wednesday, and recommend an unknown band destined for stardom on Thursday? If so, please apply for this unique opportunity.

Two Global 1,000 companies have teamed up to publish a blog that will cover Austin — dining, hotels, art, local entertainment, insider tips, etc. Fun stuff only. Austin only. Sort of like the lifestyle section of a local newspaper but entirely online with more editorial freedom.

As the blogger/reporter, you'll spend approximately 30 hours per week researching and writing for the blog. Your compensation will be the equivalent of a full-time job yet you'll still have time for other freelancing projects — though this blog will be your priority.

If you have the qualifications we seek, please apply. If you know someone perfect for this role, please refer them to this opportunity. We pay a $250 referral fee.

Qualifications

Applicants must have the following qualifications:

Austin: You must reside in Austin or in a nearby suburb as you cannot report on a city unless you're on site. You must have an interest in Austin's dining, entertainment, and hospitality scene. You must have a discerning palate and a basic understanding of cocktails and wine upon which you can build (vegetarians and teetotalers need not apply).

Experience: At least one year of experience professionally blogging or reporting, preferably on lifestyle topics and preferably for a well-known commercial publication. The more experience you have, the better.

Writing Skills: This requirement goes without saying. Most people with writing talent usually draw praise throughout their academic life and career.

Research Skills: You must have a knack for finding the proverbial needle in the haystack, which typically involves more than just searching Google.

Interview Skills: You will interview celebrities and others so you must know how to frame questions that elicit information.

College Degree: Please list your cumulative GPA, especially if you have only 1-2 years of experience.

Equipment: You must own a car. If you use a Mac computer, great. If not, we'll provide you with one.

How To Apply

Please tell us about your qualifications and your familiarity with Austin. Also, tell us about your availability, and attach your resume. Please email your application to:

We need to fill this position quickly so please apply now.
