The Finer Things

The Finer ThingsJobs of the Week

We think our algorithm might be getting soft. It has started throwing up channels focused on traveling, fine art, and entertainment, food, and (gasp!) listicles. So for this week’s selections of jobs, we asked our editors to find ones that showcase the finer things in life. Because it’s the 21st century and work shouldn’t feel like work. So here is what they came up with:

1. For the fine diners

If you love food and want to talk about, there are a lot of interesting jobs out there. You could be a freelance food blogger for opentable, or if you have a really fine palate, you could be a senior food writer for National Geographic (we are talking about 10 years of experience and potentially a Masters degree). If you aren’t much of a writer — be a junior food video producer at Buzzfeed. Cooking experience is a plus.

Just getting started and want to build a career around food — be a Community Team Intern at Tastemade.

And if you want to build a sales or a marketing career at an innovative food company, we have a curated channel for you to drool over.

2. For the fine winers (why whine when you can wine)

If you know your Pinot’s from your Merlot’s, or care enough to find out, be an assistant sommelier at the hot new restaurant housed within the Whitney Museum at the high line. At Union Square hospitality, you will get to attend beverage courses and learn more about the craft. It requires 3 years of restaurant beverage experience.

If you want to marry wine with business, then you could be the Director of Wine at the Shangri-La. In this role you will lead the marketing strategy for the wine retail business.

If you want to use your RAD programming skills to disrupt the wine industry, then you could be a Python developer at Which Winery.

For mixologists, beverage marketers, and hospitality experts, we have channels for you.

3. For those who want to see the world

Are you a junior accounting professional chained to your desk with dreams of seeing the world? Look at this job for International Auditor at Coca Cola. It requires 100% global travel. That’s right. You’re required to travel through Europe, Asia, Latin America and Africa to audit their business everywhere. And people say that being an accountant is a desk job!

Or you could manage Foreign Rights at Lonely Planet. Based in London you could work with Lonely Planet’s publishing partners to drive growth across three territories.

Just want to help others travel well instead? Work for Apple as an Executive Travel Consultant, and work with VIP travelers as they navigate a global business landscape.

Love travel and don’t know where to get started? We have a channel for entry-level jobs at travel-focused companies. Earn your wings and make your career fly.

4. And those who want to dance to it’s rhythm

Music gets the best of me. Everyone else gets the rest of me. If you feel the same way, check out this Lyrics Internship at Shazam. You will be in charge of making the lyrics coverage even better. Perfect for graduates who are self-starters and passionate about music.

If you are a technologist trying to make music and entertainment sound even better, Dolby has a Sound Technology Engineer position for you.

## 5. For those who think of fashion as culture Writing about style is back in style, whether you want to write about it for a cutting edge digital media company (Mic, talk about fashion news for a well known magazine (Harper’s Bazaar), or describe fashion products for a new age digital fashion company (Net-A-Porter).

Whether you want to be in the business of fashion, the design of fashion, or the purchasing of fashion (yes, these are jobs that will pay you to shop!), we have channels for you.

6. And for those who think shaping culture is in fashion

There are some of us who want to bring the finer things back to the work place. Add a little culture to our offices, and make the weekdays fun and exciting. Be the Head of Office Space and Culture at Venmo. This is a job not just about office management, but also about creating a delightful work place which fosters creativity. Or be a Director of People and Culture at Vox Media.
