Hi Alex,

 

Below is a strange but oddly (occasionally) compelling job newsletter. Jobs from the across the country (or beyond), for all sorts of communications work. It’s not the best one out there but it reminds me that there are lots of options.

 

If interested in signing up, he usually includes info at the end or you can go to http://bit.ly/JOTWSubscribe to subscribe.

 

Don’t email him to subscribe — he’s been running this quirky job list for a decade or more and gets really tired of people asking him how to subscribe when he’s provided the information.

 

I will send you a few others (perhaps more traditional) as they come in.

Cheers

 

S.G.

Hey, how much would a Can’t Wait cost me? I have an opening on my staff here?.
