    under-40,000 circulation category.

    Qualifications: exceptional reporting and writing skills, experience in page layout and excellent computer skills. Commitment to accuracy and strong people skills. Must work well as a member of a team in a fast-paced environment and

    I've always liked Bloomington. Great college town. It's been a few years since I've been through and seen the paper, but I remember being impressed.

    How many sports staffers?

    We currently have a sports editor (who also covers Indiana football and writes columns about Indiana basketball), an IU basketball beat reporter (me) and a high school reporter. We've also got two part-time reporters who cover primarily high schools. We also have three desk guys. When a new hire is made, the department will be restructured slightly based on a few factors, one of which will be the specific skills and interests the new person brings.

    What would be your interest in a May graduate?

    We'll certainly consider May graduates who meet the job description.

    Is this posted on any job boards or just on here?

    And you mention some page design work, but the department getting slightly restructured with the new person - does that mean that there may not be design work involved?

    The ad will appear on the APSE job board soon.

    There will be design work involved.

    Korman is one of the more talented people I've been blessed to know. The successful candidate will enjoy working with him.

    I agree that would be nice; my printer is full of fail.

    Odds are, if they didn't provide an e-mail address they prefer the hard copy. Don't complain; just do it.
