    I have friends who have similar jobs... They typically pay very well...

    Surprised they'd base it in Providence, though. Connecticut, maybe, Providence, not so much.
  4. What is "very well?"

    $60K to start... Both were poached away from other PR jobs, one college, one smaller Pro league... Neither had any previous experience with NASCAR... Neither of them is based in R.I. so I don't know if it's the same thing, but it sounds like it is...

    Comparing it to the cheap-assed pay of most newspapers, 60K probably sounds pretty good. But 60K gets you a dump in Providence without supplemental income and isn't good enough to be on the road 75 percent of the year, plus weekends, unless you're young and single.

    Critical point here - this job is to support "the NASCAR Whelen Modified Tour" not Nextel Cup, or even Busch or Craftsman Truck for that matter. For this reason, pay is probably on a much lower scale.

    It's too bad that I don't have any PR experience (other than college classes), because I'd love to apply for this.

    (what a lame 1,000th post. damn.)

    And you get to visit exotic outposts such as Thompson, Conn.; Wall Twp., N.J.; Claremont, N.H.; and Mansfield, Ohio. Fun!
  10. Well said, nowhere near what it would take to inhale all those fumes and tobacco jizz.
