    Hey all. I haven't been here in a while. I used to be Jim Tom Pinch, but I can't seem to get back into that account so I created a new one. Tweener is right that that last person in the job stayed four months, but he left for a good job that I believe he was recruited for. The parting was amicable on both sides so I wouldn't treat that as a red flag. MassLive is a good crew and a pretty fun place to work. I'm not involved in the hiring process so I can't help you get the job. But if you're interested, I'm knowledgable about it. If you have questions, feel free to reach out.
