The international media is eating up Tourism Richmond's job posting that is a foodie's delight and includes a premium salary and free eats.

With more than three weeks remaining until the application deadline closes, hundreds of applicants have already e-mailed in their resumes, hoping to stake the $50,000 salary and the daunting caloric task of eating at a different Richmond restaurant every day for an entire year.

"The online buzz and attention...yeah, it's exceeded our expectations," said Tourism Richmond spokesperson Kristen McKenzie.

The job also comes with compensation for accomodations, though those details haven't been finalized.

So far, applications have come from far abroad, including Indonesia, Australia, Thailand, the Czech Republic, the United Kingdom and the United States, among others.

Interested bloggers can apply online via Tourism Richmond’s Facebook page: www.facebook.com/RichmondBC.
