    The sad thing is knowing that 85% of high school dropouts probably make more money than this.

    Sweet.
    That would be a pay raise.

    Woohoo! No resume needed. Now they'll never have to know about my five-year blogging tenure at myteamrox.blogspot.com that leads my experience folio.
     
  6. medianews still is better than some other options in the region (cough, gatehouse, cough).

    How big an ego hit would it be if you got turned down by the paper that hired Krystal Grow?

    Why are they even bothering? Just put an ad in the classifieds or a sign in the front window.

    This is like McDonald's doing a national search for someone to work the drive through.

    Other than McDonald's innuendos, anyone know anything about this newspaper?

    Glenn is good people. They recently hired an SE about three months ago, and the pay for the SE was $30,000, so something to strive for ::)

    Wow, that's $3 K more than I made as a Gatehouse SE. Perhaps I shouldn't be so fast to doubt this company and the potential for upward movement...
