  • This sounds like a good job for someone living in one of the required states.
  • I know. It sounds great. Trouble is, I live in CT. Looks like they're not hiring here.

  • content screener
    It would be nice to put the state restriction in the title so if you don't live in those states you won't read it.
  • I live in IN. so I am going to apply. Will let you all know how it goes. And, yes it would be nice to have it posted in the title if it's for specific states only. That way if you don't live in those states you won't see a good opportunity that you can't get.
  • I'd be perfect...
    ...if only you'd consider some other Midwestern states! My background in the newspaper biz, including writing and editing (including obituaries), seems like a perfect fit. I'll keep my fingers crossed and keep checking that perhaps you'll expand into other areas.
