    Are we Googling to find jobs or trying to find communications jobs at Google?

    I will just say I recently moved over to a communications role at a health insurance company and was surprised at the number and variety of communications people they employ.

    Not sexy stuff, but the hours are great.

    I'll second that. I was a journo from 1996 to fall of 2013, moved over to internal corporate comms for a financial company in NYC. My pay more than doubled and the hours are set, the stress is 1/10th, and there are a lot of ex-journalists (or at least people who appreciate words) in the industry.

    BTW, I had no background in business writing, but I had a diversity of clips beyond sports, so that probably helped.

    It's good to see someone finally observe correct AP style regarding the capitalization of Crap Ton.
