A Grimm outlook

As the journalism industry slips further into the ominous stew of transition, the very good folks at Poynter seem to step their game up time and time again.

The website is chock full of excellent programming, has wonderfully executed multimedia and enough interesting reading to keep your mind off of the cricketycrack of the police scanner. Simply, Poynter is to journalists what Mecca is to Islam. (And I'll have offended someone in 5, 4, 3...)

Anyway, I've been paying a bit of attention to Joe Grimm's "Ask the Recruiter" column, in which the DFP recruiter gives solicited career advice with equal parts candor and sensibility. Ten95 is thinking about submitting a question in a couple days and our very own T-Dot will be moving our question to the front of the line.

Cause you know. She got it like that.

I actually hadn't seen the new Poynter site until you directed me to it, D. The career center menu makes it even more valuable for those journos looking for a new gig.

And I'll see what I can do about the question. I'm not making any promises, but I did get a call from JG on my birthday. That's gotta count for something.
