    A friend of mine got cut from a "Heartless" Publications because he "made too much money" when his paper was bought.

    So those of us in the market should shy away from this company? Does anyone out there have any positive or negative experiences to share about Heartland Publications?

    If you're looking to get into journalism in this economic climate, shying away from a place probably isn't a good idea. With that said, you better not have high expectations about working for Heartless.

    Due to growth?

    Newspapers are growing?

    Growth = profit margin.

    I've no doubt I lack the experience they're looking for; but as someone fresh out of college trying to make it in this field, should I include articles I've written? If so, how many? My resume at this point is rough.

    Exactly. What "Heartland" did in Mount Airy was despicable. I knew someone who worked in Laurinburg. It was bad, then "Heartland" bought it and, shockingly, it got worse.

    SCEditor's edit was perfection.

    wsreader ... Run. Fast. Now.

    This should tell you what you need to know. The paper I used to work at, which wasn't "Heartless" when I was there, fires its editor because he was making too much money. He's an incredibly talented journalist, my boss at the shop I'm at now, and has won a ton of awards. But he made too much money, so they canned him.

    The guy who replaced him is a photographer with very little writing/editing/designing background.

    But I bet he came half-price.

    First, we have a Jobs board.

    Second and finally, nobody should send their resumes to any Heartland paper. Ever.

    A job is better than no job wouldn't you say?
