    there are too many out-of-work journalists for them not to find someone qualified the first time around.

    Typo on that last one. Will applicants need to be able to start immediately? Or would you consider someone graduating from college in May?

    OK, it's just everyone's telling me to send out resumes now even though I don't graduate until May. There's really no reason to be a prick about it BottomlessPit. Dick.
