PX This founder and mysterious hottie (and Gawker nemesis) Abbe Diaz sent along this little job listing for a P/T PR person for a restaurant group she’s consulting with (hint: you will have to at least pretend to like Balthazar) and wanted to help out all of us shitcanners. Are we willing to make the move from hack to flack? Hey, if Ms. Restaurant Gossip herself is, why not? We won’t tell anyone. Email after the jump.
yah so. i kinda got offered this (very) P/T gig but i can’t do it. so i was wondering if you might wanna spread the word, before they go sticking it in craigslist or whatever….
basically this funky resto group needs an “in-house PR manager”– about 3 hours per day M-F, it can be pretty much ANY 3 hours (that’s about how long the job should take. maybe less).
it would entail:
Managing and operating the group’s Twitter account (about 4-6 locations)
– instructing and follow-up with store management to insure they are promoting Twitter account via signs, receipt-printed “announcements,” website, etc.
– daily communication with managers of each location to determine “specials,” discount offers, messages to patrons, etc. and the dissemination of said information.
Managing the group’s “short burst” PR campaign
– daily communication with managers/staff to determine any “news-worthy” in-house events and the dissemination of said news.
– occasional personal observation of some locations in operation to determine any “news-worthy” in-house events and the dissemination of said news.
the pay is $300 per week ($20 per hour) cash freelancer’s salary [responsible for filing own 1099]. it is also strongly encouraged the PR manager spend one or two evenings (max) extra a week at the two west village “fine dining” locations (wherein he/she would receive 2 courses and 2 drinks to be charged to the company in compensation) spent in observation during and/or for newsworthy events, and the subsequent dissemination of said news.
this is an OPEN position with ample room for growth for a smart, creative, affable, free/out-of-the-box-thinking individual (no jerkfaces, please). conversely, in 3 months, after which time the “in-house PR program” will be evaluated to determine its efficiency and success, it can/will be terminated if deemed ineffectual.
excellent spelling skills a must. WIT REQUIRED (the dissemination of dry-assed boring “tweets” and/or “press releases” will not be tolerated). obscure “celebrity” name&face recognition/cognizance a huge plus.
position would require a signed confidentiality agreement (sorry, no behind-the-resto-scene blogga book opportunites here, bitches!).
Interested in the position? Sounds like pretty easy money. Send name (duh?) and short bio to abbe(dot)diaz (at) gmail.com.
