    Our posting at journalismjobs.com:

    The Tulsa World is seeking an experienced, creative news designer to join our Universal Design desk. Position requires a college degree, preferably in journalism with design skills and knowledge. Must be proficient in InDesign, Photoshop & other publishing software. Three or more years design experience in newspapers or other print media is preferred, but less qualified applicants could be considered based on skill level. Must be able to meet deadlines and work well with others. The successful applicant will be able to build a captivating feature page one day, an engaging news page the next and a high-impact sports page the day after that. Please send resume, cover letter and samples of your work to: hr@tulsaworld.com or FAX: (918) 584-8966 or to the Human Resources Department, PO Box 1770, Tulsa, OK 74102. EOE M/F

    Not in the ad: This position will likely do a lot of sports if I get the right person in here. There are always duties involving other desks, but I envision this being primarily sports when we get someone up to speed. There is also the opportunity to show some versatility as a sports slot editor running the sports section's production ion some nights f we get someone who also has strong chops as an editor.

    If you have any questions, shoot me a message or email at james.royal@tulsaworld.com (resumes should go to hr@tulsaworld.com.

    And to head off the inevitable question, yes, we had a job open in May. We filled that position, and then one of our designers (Adam Daigle) was promoted to Assistant Editor to replace Sarah Hart, who is leaving for ESPN, leading to our current opening.

    That's five people at two papers taking ESPN jobs. The dominoes are falling, as Lawton just lost a guy to the Oklahoman and are looking for someone now too.
    Thanks ESPN for the worst timing imaginable with football very close.

    We're definitely looking at external candidates. Almost guaranteed this is an outside hire.
