    I would be all over this if it weren't for the part-time part. Dammit, I could work for the DMN.

    <sarcasm>So is this a full-time job or a part-time job?</sarcasm>

    I used to hold this position, and I would presume this is only a temporary role (which won't be disclosed anywhere in the interview/hiring process unless explicitly asked).

    PM me if you have any questions about the job or the otherwise.

    Said it before, I'll say it again - Francescutti is pretty brilliant dude. Loved having him as a boss at the WWL.
