So you want to work in wine? Check out some of this week’s more fabulous options.
1. Viticulture Instructor at a community college in….Kansas? Who knows? Could be flat out fun.
2. Napa Valley winery that dubs itself “America’s first Temple to Wine and Art” seeks a Visitor Center Wine Educator. Should you apply for this job, it’ll help if you share the winery’s passion for “Art, Architecture and of course the Highest Quality of Wines” and are proficient “at operating the Register.” I can only assume that candidates sharing the winery’s Proclivity for Random Capitalization will be given Extra Consideration.
3. The dubiously named Double Crossed Wines is looking for Sales Reps for Bay Area. These are “generous commission only” positions. Sure, until you get ripped off.
4. Meanwhile in Bannockburn, IL the Terlato Wine Group tries to lure a JDE Functional Expert to join their team with quite the text heavy ad. In between developing “system process flows” and providing “business automation expertise,” the lucky man or woman chosen for this position will “provide functional support, design and develop new and modified functionality, reports, forms, and interface systems in support of…” ZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZ. By the way, not a wine job, Terlato.
5. A “Prestigious Healdsburg-area winery” that wishes to remain anonymous seeks a full-time Sommelier who has the ability not only to analyze and describe wine flavors and aromas, but also to dissect them. Hmmm… Any guesses as to which prestigious winery this might be?
