The Westendorff Seeking Chefs With Social Media Experience

"Familiarity with marketing through social media"

Eater Charleston

Upcoming restaurant The Westendorff is hiring kitchen staff to work with executive chef Christopher "Ted" Jackson. He will have two weeks to train his staff to prepare for the June 1 opening of the meticulously-restored restaurant.

The ad asking for applications at The Westendorff is fairly standard, except the unique requirement of "[f]amiliarity with marketing through social media." Many members of Charleston's restaurant scene are already well-versed in Instagram, but this might be the first time an internet-savvy prerequisite has popped up on a help wanted post for chefs.

Should culinary schools start offering Twitter classes in addition to classic techniques?
