Multiple Grammy award winning R&B siren and singer/songwriter extraordinaire Alicia Keys is looking to hire a full-time blogger and has turned to the internet to find the right person for the job.

Keys has paired with internet job giant Monster.com to conduct a national job search for the position of "head blogger" for her new website IAAS.com (I Am A Super Woman). Keys says one of the main focuses of the new site will be to motivate and encourage women all over the world, and that she is looking for just the right person to be its main voice.

“With IAAS.com, I’ll be displaying my ‘voice’ in a different way and need just the right person to help me express a point of view that I don’t think exists yet in the blog world,” Keys said in a statement posted on her website. “Combing the country is a big undertaking and I’m incredibly grateful to have Monster.com as a partner in this extensive and exciting process!”.

The way the application process works is first you have to post a searchable resume on Monster (private and non-viewable resumes will not be considered). From there, applicants will need to find the job-post (hint: it can be found here).

Once your resume has been posted, Alicia Keys and an "Advisory Board" of social media experts will review the entries to determine a field of final candidates, who will than be asked to submit their blogs or social media sites for final review. The blogs will than be judged for things like uniqueness of writing voice, design quality, and how well subject matter directly addresses IAAS’s ideology.

A field of final candidates will then be interviewed in New York sometime in early May (and seen on national television during a segment on a major TV network morning news show). The final three candidates will then be flown to London, England where they will be interviewed by Keys herself in late May. The "winner" will then be announced on National television the week of June 21st.

To be considered for the position of head blogger for Alicia Keys IAAS.com (I Am A Super Woman) site, bloggers must be willing to travel to both New York and London for the interview process should they be chosen, and have the necessary passports. They must also be authorized to work in the United States, and willing to relocate to New York should they land the job (which is a full-time position).

Ladies and gentlemen, start your engines. The Keys to the kingdom could be yours, and the line forms here.

    yeah, she probably would be. i just think her stuff is paint-by-numbers r&b.

    besides, i couldn’t work for her. i’d have to (as the wife is so fond of saying) have to wear duct tape over my eyes. ;-)

    This seems like a good full time gig. The relocation requirements will probably eliminate a lot of good candidates.
