I’m so excited to write this post today because I’ve got exciting news to share: Kara Lydon Nutrition is hiring a registered dietitian to join its team! If you’re passionate about helping people heal their relationships with food and their bodies, this job is for you! We practice evidence-based nutrition counseling under the paradigms of intuitive eating and Health at Every Size. We see clients who have eating disorders, disordered eating, digestive disorders, and general health and wellness concerns. We also run the food and healthful lifestyle blog, The Foodie Dietitian.
You don’t need to have a ton of experience in these areas but you must have a keen passion and interest and eagerness to learn, grow and evolve. And if you do have experience in these areas, even better! More important than the knowledge base or experience, is your general skillset and attitude. We’re looking for someone who is empathetic, compassionate, and mindful. Someone who is highly motivated and hard-working. Someone who is flexible and adaptable and has attention to detail. And someone with strong verbal and written communication skills. If this is sounding like you, I hope you will apply!
