Fancy getting paid to eat out every day for free?
What if a free apartment, living expenses and membership for the Richmond Olympic Oval gym were also thrown into the mix?
If you think you're just the man or woman for the job, then get your application into Tourism Richmond tout suite.
On Wednesday, the tourism agency launched its search for Richmond's Foodie Blogger, a "global audition for a once-in-a-lifetime employment opportunity that will appeal to a food-loving hyper-communicator and adventurer at heart."
Tourism Richmond will offer one lucky person a one-year $50,000 contract to eat at and promote the city's 400-plus Asian eateries.
It wants a "blogging epicurean who can vividly convey the city's many restaurant offerings online through the written word, photography and video."
The opportunity is open to anyone around the world eligible to work in Canada for a year. Applications for this unique role open March 1 and close March 31.
But it won't be all dim sum and dumplings - the winner is required to visit at least one of Richmond's 800 restaurants per day, post online content daily, manage community engagement across various social media channels and demonstrate a willingness to explore all that Richmond has to offer outside of its food scene.
"Our ideal Richmond Foodie Blogger will be a great communicator, social media savvy, and most importantly, be open-minded and willing to try new things," said Tourism Richmond CEO Tracy Lakeman.
"We know we have some of the best Asian cuisine on the globe and this is the ideal time to showcase it - all of it.
"Based on market research, we already know that visitors are attracted to Richmond for its authentic Asian influence as well as its affordability and accessibility to Vancouver, Whistler and Victoria - we are the gateway to British Columbia."
The 365 Days of Dining campaign is a long-term strategy for tourism growth in Richmond that is expected to grow in momentum throughout the year, added Lakeman.
Interested bloggers can apply online via Tourism Richmond's Facebook page (www.facebook.com/RichmondBC) starting March 1.
Tourism Richmond will review all applications and whittle the list of prospective bloggers down to 10 finalists.
All finalists will then partake in two rounds of interviews before Richmond's Foodie Blogger is selected. Applicants outside of B.C. will likely be interviewed via Skype.
