There’s a ton of new job ads today on Mediabistro, including one that has us tipping our hat to TMZ. The managing editor search starts off with a delightful setting of the newsroom scene:
No need to have experience in Celebrity News – it’s not brain surgery.
Excepting perhaps future coverage of a famous person admitted to Cedars-Sinai for treatment of a serious head injury, that is absolutely correct. Then comes the cool kicker. Site founder Harvey Levin is going to be traveling to Austin for SXSW and is more than willing to make time for worthy candidates while there:
Harvey will be at South by Southwest on Saturday and Sunday, March 9th and 10th. He’d welcome meeting qualified candidates.
Leave it to TMZ to transform the job interview into a snazzy, fun-filled experience. Even for those who do not land the job, this will likely stand as a memorable SXSW highlight. To apply for the managing editor job, click here.
