    USA Today, for those who don't already know, has a bootload of Reporter and Editor jobs covering the NFL, NBA, MLB, fantasy, golf, blogs, etc.
    You are all welcome. ~ ;)

    Does it seem strange that on one page there is a thread about how the USA Today is cutting out everything, laying off people, consolidating stuff - and on this jobs board it is advertising something like 50 open jobs?

    Dave Morgan indicated in a Q-and-A that after all was said and done, there would be a net increase in positions at USAT, so no, this does not seem strange at all.

    This Supreme Court reporter job they talk about on the second page - Is that basketball or tennis? :)

    Anyone have any idea what something like this would pay? They ask for salary expectation, and it occurred to me I don't really know where "blog editor" would slot. Along the lines of a print reporter, or more like an editor? What about after USA Today's reorganization? I'm uneasy about the salary question on job applications anyway, but this time it's especially confounding.

    I put 45,000. I figured that's reasonable enough for a starting point without sounding high, but who knows if I'll even get a response. Most of my baseball experience is on a freelance basis, so that might not be good enough.

    If that position is based in McLean, $45K won't get you very far. Just saying.

    I'm sure it won't, just like I'm sure I won't get a response.

    Well, crap. Stuff is just too damn expensive then.
  12. I'm sort of embarrassed to have to ask this, but I followed the link and went through the process of applying for one of the openings that I thought was the best fit for me. There are a few others I'd be interested in as well, but when I go to apply for those it already has my resume and cover letter preloaded and ready to go.

    The cover letter was written specifically for that one job. So if I write a new one and upload it, will it be attached to every application I have submitted? Anyone understand what I'm talking about?

    Thanks in advance.
