Jay Jerrier is looking for a few good pizzaiolos, according to a recent post to his Facebook page. It links to an ad on Craigslist that asks experienced applicants to stop by the restaurant for a tryout. And it turns out Zoli's isn't the only prominent restaurant in the Dallas area that's hiring right now.

If you're dreading the damage this holiday season might do to your finances, you should be all over these Craigslist want ads.

CBD Provisions is hiring a lot of front end staff. Separate ads for servers and hosts ask for people who are obsessed with food and beverage, and tenacious in providing an outstanding guest experience. The new downtown restaurant has a buzz around its crafty take on comfort cuisine. If you'd prefer to be closer to the food they're hiring cooks, too. And just look at their Cuban.

Considering the typical holiday diet, you might rather surround yourself with healthful eating choices. As True Food Kitchen prepares to open at the Preston Center, they've announced they're hiring an entire restaurant's worth of employees.

If you're looking for more of a fine dinning gig, Stampede 66 is hiring a sous chef and multiple cooks. If you want to apply, be sure and brush up on your Stephan Pyles trivia. Candidates are expected to research the restaurant and more specifically Stephan Pyles prior to applying.

Too much work? Meddlesome Moth sets the bar much lower. Applicants for a hostess position are only required to have a smiley, energetic disposition and reliable transportation. Surely DART counts.

And just in case Zoli's didn't work out and you had your heart set on a dough tossing gig don't fret -- Grimaldi's in the West Village is hiring pizzaiolos, too.
