    Let's hear some kudos for Mike Harris. The rookie not only leads the ACC in new hires, but is currently leading the nation (Whoa, Nelly!), according to the agate list which just moved over the wire.
    With more hires on the way (according to the other posts), maybe they could have all the new guys do a Foxwoods commercial together.
    Seems to be a lot of positivity toward the RTD sports section right now as he re-loads.

    Thanks, Diego! You posted my job before I could.
    I don't think DyePack will be applying for this one but I expect we'll get a lot of good candidates.
    And I don't know about leading the nation but we may soon. One hire done, one well underway, this one just posted and at least one more coming soon.

    Hmm, you get the SE job and all of a sudden you have a bunch of openings to fill. That can't be just a coincidence can it? :D :D ;)

    Meanwhile, back on the job board ****
  9. Any update? This job it seems would have the potential to topple some dominoes in the ACC. Expect to see some high-profile applicants.

    From the boots pipeline, this job probably will be filled in house. Several top candidates for the position.
    However, that is not to say that an outsider might not be able to fill the void if Mike thinks he can handle it.

    I'm sure Ryan Sonner could handle this job, design the pages, mop the floors, clean the trash cans and cover the Hokies.

    I'm sure Ryan Sonner could make Richmond a one-man shop with his talents. :)
