Moe Tkacik, former Gawker staff writer
Dream job:
“My ideal job would be anything that thoroughly monopolizes my brain for a sufficiently lengthy portion of the day (10--14 hours) to render it incapable upon punching out of the sort of anxiety and/or guilt and/or existential despair that takes the fun out of drinking. It would be nice if the position involved writing and/or humor and/or a perverse fascination with finance, but seriously, a high-pressure barista environment would probably do the trick.”
Why here? “Because they revere loyalty almost as much as whoever makes their playlists reveres the ’90s.”
To hire Moe, e-mail moetkacik@gmail.com.

Scratcher Cafe, 209 E 5th St between Second and Third Aves (212-477-0030)

Jonathan Rohl, laid-off casualty-insurance broker
Dream job:
“Hopefully this will result in my gaining Hollywood leading-man status, millions of dollars and a throng of adopted children. All joking aside, my passion is for running and endurance sports. I am a marathon runner and triathlete, and right now I am focused on training for the Boston Marathon and Ironman USA in Lake Placid in July. But I would like nothing more than to make my living in that arena, maybe something along the lines of a Nike or Adidas sales or product manager or working with pro athletes.”
To hire or sponsor Jonathan, e-mail jonnyrohl@gmail.com.

James Maguire, laid-off floor trader with a specialist Wall Street firm
Dream job:
“I’m an aspiring actor; I feel life’s too short. And you gotta do what you have to do. I feel like things happen for a reason. Acting’s something I’ve been wanting to do for a while. I was kind of stuck down there and it’s gotten so computerized that it took away a lot of positions and wasn’t what it used to be.”
Why here? “Yellow Hook is a neighborhood bar that my friend owns. It’s relaxing, nothing crazy, you can just have a couple beers and not feel crushed.”
To hire James, e-mail james.m.maguire@gmail.com.

“High-school baseball coach and newspaper adviser.”
To hire Adam, e-mail adamkraymond@gmail.com.

Paige Ferrari, former features editor, Radar
Dream job:
“Writing for you, editing for you, preferably not recapping The Hills for you, but—who am I kidding—that’s totally negotiable. Re: Marshall Stack: The staff treats you like a lady, and the ladies’ room has a very large mirror in it.”
To hire Paige, e-mail paige.ferrari@gmail.com.

Neel Shah, former staff writer, Radar
Dream job:
“Editor-in-chief, Radar 4.0.”

Matthew Fiordaliso, ex--mortgage trader at a hedge fund and a large financial institution
What’s next?
“I have been using this time to take cooking classes and read the books I’ve always wanted to read, but now I would love to get back into the market at a firm with a highly regarded asset-management division and put my skills back to work...and pay my bills.”
Why here? “Quite honestly, the $3.50 PBRs and BBQ!”

Chef Chris Cheung, laid-off from Monkey Bar
Dream job:
“My dream job used to be to own my own restaurants, but honestly, I’d rather cook than deal with financial stuff. I want to push what I am doing, so it would be a dream to work at a place where I am allowed to do that.”Why here? “I’ve hung out on this block my whole life. I played basketball across the street for 25 years. This is home. I’ve closed this bar many, many times.”
Chef Cheung is currently cooking with his family in the villages outside Shanghai. E-mail him at darkcrash17@gmail.com.

Caroline Wooldridge, out-of-work marketing manager
Dream job:
“I’m seeking an internal marketing position, preferably in travel, education or publishing. I’m very open to a position that would utilize my creativity, initiative and communication skills.”
Why here? “Not only is the beer at Zum Schneider delicious, it comes in three tiers of size and price. So while I can look forward to the employed days of sitting down to a full liter of Bavarian brew, for now I can order the small or medium and feel fiscally responsible.”
To hire Caroline, e-mail hire.caroline@gmail.com.
