I know that some Ottawa-based members of the commentariat like to take shots at QMI and Sun media, and that’s fine. A bit of competitive jousting is a good thing, even if some of it sounds bitchy sometimes.
But I wanted to draw your attention – and your CV, if relevant – to the fact that QMI and the Sun are engaged in the biggest hiring effort since Conrad Black created the Post, more than a decade ago.
Here’s a sampling of the stuff I’ve received in my inbox just this morning. There’s been even more help wanted notices in recent weeks and months, too. If you have the credentials, apply away. You can send your CV to Robert.firstname.lastname@example.org and/or email@example.com. Good luck!
