Paging Ruth Reichl!: A young journalist is dying to work for you

La Vita Cucinare

Katherine Sacks has nine reasons why Ruth Reichl should hire her as web editor and "food writer extraordinaire" for the new Gilt Taste website. Her Reason #4: "Gourmet was the best job I’ll never have." The Medill grad writes:

Gourmet was the first food magazine I can remember reading and was the real reason I applied to journalism school. It had been my dream to work with the team that created Gourmet since I can remember, and everything I did, from culinary school to writing restaurant reviews for my college paper to working on a French goat farm was a step towards my goal of Gourmet. The day it was announced that Gourmet was done, I cried. Literal tears streamed down my face. If that’s not dedicated I don’t know what is.

Sacks posted her nine reasons last Friday. Any update?

I haven't heard from Ruth yet, but I am hoping through the power of social media and some good karma, I'll land a job with Gilt Taste.

Sacks' plea is here.
