    I'm sure most of us frequent the APSE job site. And yes, I know this time of year the board always thins out quite a bit.
    But does anyone else worry that one of these times when jobs appear to disappear, that maybe it'll stay that way? That the APSE job site will remain practically vacant?

    There sure are fewer of the "moving up" jobs out there, it seems. JJobs is the same way. Cutbacks have made several bigger paper jobs filled before they are ever posted.

    It's a great time to be a sports coy editor.

    The problem with that board is that costs money to list openings. It hasn't always been that way, and there were more openings on it when it was free for hiring papers to list them.

    That's exceedingly well done. Or is it well-done? Whatever.

    So, if a tree falls in the woods...

    Let me pose this question, since the PR option is always brought up on this board:
    If the "media" is shrinking, won't the "media spinners" shrink, too?

    I win. Went the PR-like alumni magazine route.

    The message has to get out there somehow and somewhere. There will always be some element of "print" media and local TV and radio that demands content. With fewer and fewer reporters and producers, that content will have to come from somewhere.

    Us flacks are the "somewhere." You're going to be depending more and more on us to feed the beast.

    BBAM, I'm already here as well. Don't plan on returning either.
