TorSun job

It is a part-time position, but Saturday's Toronto Sun ad for an entertainment reporter should be a big draw.

The Sun says it needs someone to "cover and review music in and around Toronto, and occasionally back up other entertainment writers."

Excellent gig.

While it sounds like a perfect opportunity for a journalism grad keen on music, or for a natural itching for a break, the ad calls for a minimum of two years experience on a daily newspaper.

That's a bummer.

Why not leave it open to anyone willing to work his or her butt off to get a foot in the door of a major city daily?

Heck, you could turn the hiring of a big city daily concert reviewer into a competition.

A couple of trial concert reviews by applicants on the short list would quickly determine the scope of their knowledge of the local, national and international entertainment scene and their writing skills.

Deadline for applications is May 28.
