    There are certainly worse gigs than covering preps in South Florida. The last time I was in Miami, I was really impressed with the Sun-Sentinel, though it's been a while since I've seen the paper.

    I know some papers choose to go this route, but (in my best Seinfeld) what's the deal with some papers just asking for a cover letter and resume.
    By no means, am I opposed to it. Just was curious to hear a lil feedback.

    There are a lot of people too lazy to do it. It's a way to lighten the amount of resumes.

    You know those Cubans who live in boxes?

    This area is one of the country's most expensive.

    Don't worry. ::)
    If you work for the Sun Sentinel, you won't be living in a box. Pay is good. Job is good. Don't worry, be happy.

    I don't get your answer, MU. Who's too lazy? Those sending or receiving?
    I know we had a thread on this a way back, but if they only ask for cover/resume, is it a major %*#&$(*& if you send clips too?
    Do they cull the group based on cover/resume and call for clips if so desired?

    I missed the part re: papers asking "JUST" for resumes and cover letters.

    Does anyone know who left? Was there any bad blood with the departure?
  12. That sounds like a pretty damn good job, especially for someone who loves high school football. FLA is up there with Texas, California and Pennsylvania when it comes to elite preps football action.
