    If you have a passion for sports, and want to be immersed with a team dedicated to covering Division I and prep teams, there’s a spot immediately available with our Pulitzer Prize-winning newspaper.

    Candidates should have a college degree in communication, graphic design or a related program. Experience as a copy editor and/or designer at a daily news publication is preferred, but we would consider a recent college graduate with internship experience.

    This would be a pretty sweet gig if it pays for the experience they're asking for. Best college hockey coverage in the nation.
  3. Should be at least $35K. It's also a union shop.

    Great dining options, too. Or so I've read in the past.

    However, Frenchy of Frenchy's grinders fame just passed away.
