    Section seems to be on fumes. It's not sure what it wants to be when it grows up.
  4. If we're talking about copy editing, someone should tell the NWTI people that "highly motivated" does not take a hyphen.

    Was that dude even posting from work? Definitely don't post about your work if you take that job.

    Whoever that dude was (I forget his name) is in the SportsJournalists.com Got Fired From Their Job Because They Posted Here heaven, and as I recall, he was anonymous too, though not exactly being stealthy about his identity.

    Odd it's a copy editor job, yet it says, "In this position, you will work as part of an editorial management team, and must be able to set and achieve goals."

    PM me if you have questions about this job. I'll be straight with ya.
    By the way, this job has been open for nearly a year, and it is the only copy editing position in sports, outside of the three ASEs they have. Very busy nights, considering the seven-eight nightly editions they have.
    Rest of the story on NWITimes has been well documented on this Web site.

    just wanted to correct an outright lie. say what you will about the times. but this copy editing job has not been open for a year, as mr. bowker says. the person in that position took a new job at the paper, so this job has only been open for a few weeks.

    another outright lie is the "seven-eight nightly editions they have." yes, the paper as a whole can put out eight editions each night. in sports, though, they produce an illinois edition and two editions within indiana most nights. just shows what mr. bowker remembers about working there. so take that as you will if you decide to pm the guy for his "straight" story on working there. besides, is there any daily sports section in the country this size that does NOT have "very busy nights"??? that usually comes with the sports journalism territory.

    Is this the same paper that wants to hire a part-timer to cover a D-I school? I get my suburban Chicago papers confused easily. . .

    It is indeed the same one.

    One copy editor, part-timer covering Division I basketball for a nearby school ... sounds like a great place!
