Job Opening at D Magazine

D Magazine has an immediate opening for an assistant editor. The job entails writing pithy descriptions and reviews of restaurants and bars across North Texas, using a web CMS to wrangle the large database of listings that feeds our online offerings and our iPhone app. The successful candidate (hereinafter called the “SC” to avoid that thorny “he or she” gender issue) needs to be unafraid of computers and telephones. The SC needs to give a damn about the local dining and bar scene. The SC needs to be of legal drinking age. The SC might not have any journalism experience but might just perhaps already have a blog on which the SC writes about food and/or drink. The SC will be meticulous, because in this brave, new digital world, copy editing and fact checking aren’t going to be done by anyone other than the SC in most cases. The SC, in other words, will know the difference between “everyday” and “every day” — and, while we’re at it, that “whipped chick peas” on a fancy menu really just means hummus. The SC might be able to tell us who cooked at Aurora without having to resort to Google. And, finally, the SC will be happy to work long hours for short money. Just being honest here.

Send a cover letter, résumé, and a 200-word description of your favorite bar or restaurant to editjob_at_dmagazine_dot_com.

    This job was MADE for Steven Doyle! Go for it, Steven!

  • Might do good to know SEO or already be on the Dallas #Foodie scene..

  • kym

    May the SC use the word “gestalt” ?????

  • I agree wholeheartedly with the choice of Steven Doyle, but my supposition is that he would have to take a serious pay cut to pursue journalism full-time.

  • Junie

    Is someone fired???

  • AD

    I’d much rather be the Foodie Art Director. Any positions open?

  • M

    Might this be a telecommuter-friendly position?

  • jack

    Will this be a print (who paid for it)review?

    Hear ye! Hear ye! Tim Rogers did announce
    A job in the kingdom. Unemployed? You must pounce
    On this chance to work with the best in the biz
    Including Uncle Nancy (she’s really a wiz!).
    The skill set requires some grammatical knowledge
    (like the meaning of roblet), you might need some college.
    More Agonyclite than Foochebag is what they’re after
    And someone whose writing can inspire laughter.
    But bad poetry, it seems is not something they need,
    So ipsographic commenter I remain, indeed.

  • Junie

    I think the poet takes the job! Really enjoy your stuff Borbory!!!

  • Gipson

    Well done, Borborygmous!
