How to Become a Yelp Community Ambassador

Want to rep Yelp in your hood?

The massively popular online review company is hiring in nine cities, including Santa Barbara, California; Gainesville, Florida; South Bend, Indiana; Jackson, Mississippi; Columbia, Missouri; Eugene and Bend, Oregon; Harrisburg, Pennsylvania and Galveston County, Texas.

If you live in (and love!) one of the above locations, and are the “go-to person” for restaurant and activity recommendations, then this job might be for you.

As a community ambassador, you’ll host events, partner with local organizations and act as the voice of Yelp in your local community.

You’ll need to be a “social connector,” who’s “passionate about event planning, social networking, guerrilla marketing and PR.” You also need excellent writing and time-management skills.

The program lasts for one year, during which you’ll work 10-15 hours per week from anywhere with a Wi-Fi connection. You must be over the age of 21 and also have reliable transportation.

To apply, find your city’s listing on the company’s career page and submit a cover letter, resume and link to your Yelp profile.

For social butterflies, I can’t think of a better job. Honestly, I’m sad there aren’t any openings in St. Petersburg!
