    Isn't this the paper where the publisher is, uh, very hands-on with the on-deadline process?

    Bumping this to the top. Was told that position has been filled pending background/drug screen. If the person who is hired trolls this board, I'll let them out themselves.

    And it wasn't me. I did apply and go through the interview process. First-rate operation, but that Waldo's a character. ;)

    Like the old Pretenders song says, "Maybe tomorrow.... maybe someday..."

    Bumping this back to the top for one reason:

    I told everyone Waldo was a character, but he must have had some good words to say about me. Turns out I've been hired by the Blade to work the copy desk. It's a different job than the one advertised here, but they must have liked me. :)

    So dammit, I AM good enough to work for the Toledo Blade!!

    So I guess the words, YOURE HIRED, are appropriate in this case?

    Absolutely! I was going to type "any news on this position?" but I thought better.

    Bump back to the top. We’ve been given clearance to hire for another spot. Same description just filling another hole. If interested, please give me a shout. I can tell you most of these duties are the same but there are some tweaks. You can DM me here or on Twitter at the same handle name. We are looking to fill this position ASAP with high school football season here in 44 days and college football in 52.

    Ummm, there's no job ad. Your link's broken.
    How do you apply?
