So you love food, your friends might describe you as sassy, clever, and motivated and you wouldn’t mind a little fame, fortune and glory (well, we’re getting there). Perfect! You’re in the right place. Now just tell us your desired position, any or all, in the subject heading of an email with your completed application attached and submit to rochesterspoon@gmail.com.

Editor

If Matt Damon’s role as janitor in Good Will Hunting was to spout out sentences of grammatical perfection and angelic tone (complex calculus is so overrated), this would be you. You tidy up, shine up and even get to write some of your own articles.

Requirements

Craft a personal statement telling us why you want to join Spoon and what other cool things you do that you think we should know about (250 words max)

Indulge in  Thrillist and past Spoon articles from any chapter, and using the authors’ voices as inspiration compose a mock article you would write for Spoon that falls under one of our sections (400 words max)

Writer 

You’ve always had a way with words, especially if it meant weaseling out of a homework assignment that the “cat used as a litterbox.” Oh and you love to speak your mind; because quinoa is so last year, and everyone just has to get freaky for freekeh. One article per week, no problem!

Requirements

Craft a personal statement telling us why you want to join Spoon and what other cool things you do that you think we should know about (250 words max)

Devise 3 headlines and tweetable decks that you would click on

Indulge in  Thrillist and past Spoon articles from any chapter, and using the authors’ voices as inspiration, compose a mock article you would write for Spoon that falls under one of our sections (400 words max)

Photography/Videography

You’ve got a real knack for capturing the most drool-worthy, jaw-dropping, show-stopping food porn. Still frames, live action, you name it. Cue the lights!

Requirements

Access to DSLR or SLR camera

Craft a personal statement telling us why you want to join Spoon and what other cool things you do you think we should know about (250 words max)

Portfolio:

Photographers: Minimum 5, maximum 10 of your best photos (preferably of, but not limited to, food)

Videographers: Minimum 1, maximum 3 examples of your work in short film

Business/Marketing

You love the idea of Spoon so much that you can’t stop planning the next foodie event of the century. Dining Services may have shot down your idea for a campus wide food fight in Dfo, but you are loud, you are proud and you’re packing some serious punch in your Facebook and Twitter arsenals.

Requirements

Attached resume + brief cover letter as the body of your email

3 ideas for awesome on-campus events on a budget

3 fundraising ideas/projects that would make bank

3 ways to increase online page views (not including promotion via major social media sites like Twitter, Facebook etc.)
