How to Become a Yelp Community Ambassador

Want to rep Yelp in your ’hood?

The massively popular online review company is hiring in seven cities and areas: Columbia, South Carolina; Kalamazoo, Michigan; Iowa City, Iowa; Springfield, Missouri; central New Jersey; Galveston County, Texas; and San Gabriel Valley, California.

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

As a community and community expansion 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 (within your city’s limits). You must be over age 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, Florida!
